The trio also performed two new songs from their recently-released EP, Watch the Ton3s.

The Hamiltones just released their new EP Watch the Ton3s. Prior to its release, the Grammy-nominated group came through to the Okay Space for a special performance, where they played two songs from Ton3s, as well as a cover.

“Gotta Be Loving Me” and “Pieces” were the two originals the trio performed from the six-track EP. The soulful and laidback performances carried on into their third and last song a part of the set, which was a cover of Lil Nas X’s chart-topping hit song “Old Town Road.”

Unlike the country-trap hybrid of the original, The Hamiltones go for a slower rendition of the viral song, adding vocal harmonies during the song’s hook.
