Here are some kind words straight out of the U. K. about our little band of brothers.
BEADS is the personal project of one half of the Blakes‘ brother duo, Snow Keim, and his debut record No One Knows hit local shelves this week. The record begins with a mix of vintage sounding acoustic rock songs, with Beatles era touches abundant. In a reverent and almost nostalgic way though, and not weighing too heavily I think. Fellow-Blake-and-brother Garnet capably lends some downright astounding harmonies to that effort. As the record progresses it becomes a more delicate affair and a completely different animal than we’ve seen from these gents before, yet overall I think no less crowd-pleasing. It’s just a quieter brand of pop that does a really good job of scratching that acoustic ballad itch. The song available for download below titled “Evil” is the lead track on the record, and brings together all of the things I’ve been discussing above to great effect.
