The Feather - Sighs

Sounds Like: Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine, Dirty Projectors, Anathallo

I'm taking our transcontinental indie trend in another direction with this. May I present, for your audible pleasure, the Belgium-native band, The Feather. Honestly, I only listed more 'sounds like' bands for the sake of plurality. The line could actually read: Sounds Like: Sufjan Stevens....but like very very much like Sufjan Stevens.

This group has (obviously) keyed in on the soft/bright sound and upbeat piano riffs that Sufjan has become famous for. But I don't want to sell these guys short as Sufjan-a-likes (fun new word). The depth of the instrumentation and the subtle harmonies really give the song a different and welcome edge. Check out The Feathers and stay posted for the debut album out on JauneOrange/Pias!
