Band To Check Out: all boy/all girl

Article by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


As you can see, there are a fair few members of New York collective all boy/all girl and so we're treated to a variety of different instruments, mainly of the stringed variety. Ukulele, guitar, viola, bass and cello to be exact, and although the music this clan make has a definite pop element, it's closer to chamber-pop than yet more alt-country or folk which will be a relief to many. The whole group only came together last year after partners in music Danielle Lovier and Nicholas Rahn decided to broaden the range of their sound. Whether they've settled on the current line-up for plan to grow further we don't know, but they seem to be doing just fine as they are.

It is something of a challenge to pin down their sound and this can only be a good thing. There's a definite diversity and you can find elements of every form of music that uses the listed instruments amongst their songs (baroque, country, classical, pop, folk, rock, indie, jazz). A series of gigs will have helped them gain a following and a better understanding of each other musically, but which of their songs you enjoy the most will likely be down to personal taste. We've posted a couple of our favourites below and although there is no official release out there to buy yet, there are five songs available for free on their SoundCloud page, so head over and give them a listen.
