Peals, new band from Future Islands and Double Dagger members, tours East coast in March
Good gawd. Peals – a new band featuring William Cashon of Future Islands and Bruce Willen of Double Dagger – will be touring the East coast in March.
I’ve had a chance to listen to the album and let me tell you that if you’re a fan of the dreamy popscapes of Future Islands and the catchy hooks of Double Dagger then you’ll love the marriage of sound here. The album is, by and large, instrumental – and extremely atmospheric – yet none of the nuance is lost here. The closest relation is Explosions In The Sky’s “Friday Night Lights” soundtrack, so, if you love that, then you’ll be sure to love this slightly more punk version.
