irtually every major city in the world has it selling point. Dublin is famous for a particularly popular dark beer. Rio has its massive statue of Jesus. London has that wacky Windsor family in their palace. With Nashville, the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind is country music.
So it’s no surprise that even the city’s indie rock bands want to get in on the action, and The Silver Seas recently announced that their fourth crack of the studio whip would be a country album.
What is a little more startling is that even though their lead singer, Daniel Tashian, could in theory partake of the finest Southern Barbecue right on his Nashville doorstep, he is in fact a vegetarian. He revealed this when I asked him about Tennessee cuisine and what his favourite hangover food was. “It’s all about hot chicken and pulled pork here,” he said. “But for the morning after, I like eggs, toast and tortillas with hot sauce and maybe some veggie sausage, because I’m a vegetarian.”
