It really is. It feels like a long time since I’ve been this excited about discovering a band. They’re somehow both exactly my thing and not my thing at all, so it’s extra exciting. Pretty mad at myself for not having given them a chance until this past July, I’d always assumed I’d never be able to get past the vocals and didn’t even bother trying.
Between the new album and now New Bermuda, it’s almost in a way like finding more Lift Yr Skinny Fists. They have that rare quality where I love them but don’t ever want to get too familiar with them because I always want to be surprised by moments I hadn’t thought about in a long time.
