This Brooklyn six-piece's music has been described as “grand” and “orchestral,” with a line-up that features violin, cello, and a lead singer on the drums. While their music has gotten compared to Ra Ra Riot, and Cursive, their rousing and playful live shows are what have been bringing the band attention.
The band’s emotionally-charged new disc, The Monstrous Vanguard was released earlier this year led by the song, "Gloom Doom Buttercup" which you can get familiar with below.
