a joyous collision of appalachian percussion, rustic guitars & sumptuous harmonies lit up by lens-flare flashes of electronics.

these rising pop experimentalists, led by michigan-born songwriting prodigy ben schneider, have created a brilliant debut inspired by the rust coloured canyons & characters of the wild west. they present immediate hooks while possessing a sound vast as a sergio leone cinescape; field recordings loop & cavernous drums echo while schneider’s layered vocals drift airily across its surface like tumbleweeds across a dusty desert sprawl. from galloping single ‘time to run’ to the gamelan groove of ‘the man who lives forever’, its charms are impossible to deny. “campfire strumming & robust vocal harmonies ghosted by tuneful howls” - rolling stone.
