Following a recent move to Los Angeles, CA from Brooklyn, NY, indie-rockers The Dig are rolling out a series of tracks about starting new chapters and making a new life. The newest single from their upcoming Afternoon With Caroline EP, “Don't Stop Running,” is out today and can be heard now at EARMILK. They call the track a “banger that takes inspiration from '70s soul-pop,” and go on to add, “A warbly mellotron keyboard lets listeners know it's okay to rest easy on this carefree joy ride that comes equipped with wispy call and response vocals that envelop our ears with idyllic summer imagery. A dazed and floral chorus make way for satisfying chord changes and feel-good melodies that soothe the soul.” Afternoon With Caroline will become Side B of a special edition 12-inch LP due out October 19, 2018 via Roll Call Records, with the band's recently released Moonlight Baby EP as Side A. Consequence Of Sound announced the two EPs earlier this year, debuting the title track for Moonlight Baby and praising its “dreamy vocals.” Additionally, Paste Magazine shared details about the full LP, along with the “synth-laden” lead single from Afternoon With Caroline, “Million Dollar Man,” which Magnetic Magazine named one of the '15 Best Indie Tracks Of July 2018.'

There's a general rule of thumb in any theatrical production that if the cast is enjoying what they are doing then that will translate into audience connection and enjoyment. Of course, good source material like Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice doesn't hurt the issue nor does a wonderfully quirky adaptation by Kate Hamill. But it's those two elements combined with the fact that the kick-ass ensemble cast, currently performing the piece at Seattle Repertory Theatre, appears to be big kids having two and a half hours of play-time on stage every night and having the times of their lives that makes this a winner. And that energy is certainly infectious creating uproarious laughter from the audience (and even sometimes from their fellow cast members as well).
