Check out this Olympia, Wash. band, You Are Plural, who played the Red Room this past Saturday night, Sept. 24. Wurlitzer-whiz Ephriam Nagler and cello virtuosa Jen Grady weave keyboard, cello, and vocals into a stunning, lush exploration of pattern and rhythm in their latest EP, "No More," released this month under label Side With Us Records. You Are Plural's minimal instrumentation leads to big sound thanks to live looping, wicked fast cello and keyboard licks, and stunning vocal harmonies. A rejuvenating sound in today's over-saturated, sample-heavy indie scene, You Are Plural combines heartfelt lyricism with serious technical skill.
Their entire EP can be heard here.
