I have a feeling that From Indian Lakes will make quite a name for themselves with their upcoming album, Absent Sounds (out 10/7 on Triple Crown Records). Their sound has drawn comparisons to bands like The Appleseed Cast, Circa Survive, and Radiohead, and their intricately and tightly crafted songs, highlighted by lead singer Joey Vannucchi’s impressively malleable, emotive vocals, make them a band to watch closely as 2014 progresses.
“Sleeping Limbs,” The first single from Absent Sounds, has a slightly more lush, polished sound than most of the material on 2012’s Able Bodies. The rhythm section is steady and simple, providing a somewhat chill intro to a song that becomes draped in layers of shimmering guitars tempered with just the right amount of dissonance and lyrical darkness. Vannucchi’s signature vocals are beautifully evocative and range slightly in emotion and intensity throughout the song, narrating the story with a powerfully haunting perspective. This is songwriting and musicianship at its finest and a glimpse into the impactful level of artistry that we’re sure to find in Absent Sounds.
Stream “Sleeping Limbs” below, and catch From Indian Lakes on tour with The Dear Hunter and RX Bandits, which starts 7/16.
