Breaking More Waves is taking a short pause for a couple of days whilst we’re holidaying in Scotland. So what could be more perfect to break with than a song called Upon The North from Eliza and the Bear. Its jubilant sound references the likes of Arcade Fire, Local Natives and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros and bristles with a vibrancy and feels good to be alive energy that we imagine would perk up even the most lethargic of listeners.
Whilst largely absent from many Ones To Watch for 2013 lists (they very nearly made ours) they are undoubtedly ones to watch this year if this and previous track Brother’s Boat are anything to go by. Released on the 25th Feb through Generator, get ready to put your hands in the air and holler along with the words “I spent summers away,” over and over again. On this form an Eliza and the Bear album is going to be worth parting cash for.
