Calling all Radiohead fans, calling all Radiohead fans we have discovered something just for you! Copper Sails hailing from Virginia offer up an album that drifts in and out with a very relaxing sonic experience. Copper Sails taking licks from bands like Radiohead and Dead Cab for Cutie have reached a wide fan base that only seems to get bigger and are ready to strike while I guess the copper is hot.
This four piece has already hit it with ESPN playing their track Sleeping Giant which offers that serene feeling of goodness. Orange Peel, has a spacey feeling to it that I really enjoyed and is my favorite track. But don’t be taken aback by the fact that they offer up some melodies that compare to bands listed above, tracks like Fool and Still Lost are in a class of their own showing off the skill of the band which is obviously talented instrumentally and vocally.
The quality of music here is recognizable and allows for the listener to float about it and enjoy it for what it is. Copper Sails is certain to be a juggernaut by catching the attention of the great Mitch Easter (REM,Pavement) to mix Hiding Place which is a large sign to me that Copper Sails really has something of interest to get such a name. Copper Sails could very well be the poster boys of this generations indie rock crowd so keep a look out for this Virginia quartet in your town.
I give it a 7.5/10
