Good Old War, Justin Nozuka

When: Sat., March 3, 8 p.m. 2018

The Philadelphia three-piece band Good Old War formed a decade ago following the dissolution of the band Days Away, and their gentle, poppy folk stylings are actually miles away from the previous act’s emo-influenced prog. The trio’s latest release is an EP called Part of You, which is not only a companion piece to last year’s five-song collection Part of Me (an upcoming third EP, yet to be titled, will complete the loose trilogy) but also marks the return of original Good Old War drummer Tim Arnold, who had left the band briefly to focus on family. His presence clicks a missing piece back into place, and there’s an obvious comfort in sinking into these songs, even if they’re new to you.
