White Birds // White Birds
Oh, Philadelphia, how I miss you and your blessed music scene. Honestly, the city and its suburbs never fail to impress me with the amazing music that is spawned there. And thanks to some recent heavy hitters, the City of Brotherly Love is receiving some long overdue attention to the wonders that are happening there. New to my ears is this band White Birds who recently reached out to me and subsequently wormed their way into my brain via these beautiful jams.
Pulling influence from some notable artists (ahem, The Beach Boys… ahem, Simon & Garfunkel…) they manage to create some righteous stomping ground in between and nimbly craft a world of warm and fuzzy folk pop. For me the main selling point were the harmonies. I mean, you can’t buy harmonies that lush and compact, man! It all lends itself to a sound that feels altogether comfortable and familiar and I can’t remember the last time that I felt so at home in my headphones.
The boys have an upcoming self-titled cassette that you can pre-order from Grizzly Records. So if you dig, make sure you get on that.
*As I was cooking up this post I realized that the most excellent No Modest Bear posted up another track from the EP. So check that out too while you’re at it!*
