The Way Ways to bring vintage soft-rock to Great Scott on 8/6

The Way Ways to bring vintage soft-rock to Great Scott on 8/6

 There's always been a thin line between songs that pay homage to the past, and songs that regurgitate it. Tracks of Quincy band The Way Ways are definitely in the former camp, offering a fresh take on 50's and 60's soft-rock. Like who would've been their contemporaries, they have knack for strong song-writing that doesn't try to do too much.  Chilled out vocals, steely guitars, and soft-spoken piano parts gently intermingle to create a sound that's tranquil, but has enough teeth to keep things interesting. They also have some pretty fly solos on tracks like "Jeanne" too that probably sound great live. Speaking of, you can see them on 8/6 at Great Scott. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
