The Bay Area is killing it in the ethereal pop realm lately. Among those that belong at the top of your list is Known to Collapse. Their wave-washed melodies shake, pan, and wobble gently around an anchored groove, like low-tide ripples against a buoy. Compliments to the sun-bathing seals for the added stability.
“What Is Said” is the first single from their January 20th release Transport Paradise. It’s a laid-back blend of California’s surf, Portland’s earthy foot stomp, and Brooklyn’s underground indie.
