Song of the Day: Hallways – All You Have To Do


Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Each and every Friday we offer songs by local artists. Today‚Äôs featured selection, chosen by Morning Show host John Richards, is “All You Have To Do” by Hallways available on their self-released debut Ghosts.

Hallways – All You Have To Do (mp3)

Grant Burton (Spook the Horse) and Stephanie Parrish (Sad Panda) didn’t set out to start a band together. They simply wanted to memorialize the songs they wrote for and with each other as they began their relationship and worked on letting their past go as they started to forging their future. Their heartfelt ballads and gentle harmonies invoke long solitary car rides where your mind begins to wander. Today’s song, “All You Have to Do,” has all the innocence and longing of a blossoming relationship (before fights over whose turn it is to do the dishes).

If you haven’t had the chance to check Hallways out yet, you may be in for a surprise. For their live set, they pulled in other musicians (mostly from Burton’s former band) and have reconfigured their slow country ballads into more rockin’ tunes. You can check them out this weekend at The Comet’s stellar (and FREE) Capitol Hill Block Party After Party Saturday (7/25) along with The Curious Mystery. For more info and future shows check out their MySpace page.
