The Hermits: Ruby Red Summer

Posted by on Nov 27, 2017

Despite the name, The Hermits have been out and about on the local music scene for some time. Lead songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Miles Kelley, originally put together a group called Milezo some years back with childhood friends and longtime Austin-based collaborators (including drummer Sam Jordan). Following a lineup change Kelley remained at the forefront of a new group, The Upper Deck Pets – this time with bassist & live-sampler Chase Weinacht joining the band. Now Kelley’s dynamic dream-pop psych-rock inspired songwriting has assumed a new form – The Hermits.

The Hermits’ debut EP Tour Tape was released last year and you can expect a full-length album release in 2018. The Hermits perform as part of Saturnalia Festival – Saturday, December 2nd 2pm at the Sahara Lounge. Here’s a snippet of what to expect from The Hermits – the penultimate track from Tour Tape – “Ruby Red Summer.
