I give you the Next Big Thing: a band called Milo Greene.
They haven’t even released an album yet — they’ve got a single out and an EP coming soon — but they’re getting buzz all over the place, for good reason. They land squarely in the current indie sweet spot, with the gorgeous four-part harmonies of Fleet Foxes, the propulsive, strummy accessibility of Mumford & Sons, and just a soupçon of bohemian tribal percussion.
I, of course, am a sucker for pretty harmonies, so this song might as well have been cooked up in a laboratory especially to appeal to me. But I can’t help thinking these guys are going to be huge when their album comes out next year.
Here’s the single, “1957.”
Here they are doing a live version of the song:
