5/9/15

WHAT IT IS: This L.A.-based trio creates its warm and wistful sound by playing off the delicate contradictions at the heart of its music. The band members share songwriting duties, as Mason Van Valin and Elijah Edwards specialize in a starkly literate, sometimes gritty sense of introspection, informed by artists like Bob Dylan and Jim Messina, while vocalist Megan McAllister lends a soulful vulnerability and gutsy intimacy to her material, which is inspired by everyone from Linda Ronstadt to Rihanna. “We each bring in our own different elements, but what connects us is the level of honesty that we go for in our songs,” says McAllister. In achieving that honesty, the band infuses their music with intense emotional power.
