It doesn’t feel right, getting crushes on bands at the age of 35. But I’ve recently fallen in love with Voxtrot, from Austin TX.
Sure, they’re channelling the same influences as almost every other indie-rock band right now (the Smiths, the Cure, early R.E.M.). I don’t hear any bandwagon-jumping going on here, though. These songs sound remarkably fresh, natural, instinctive, and pure. Can’t wait to see them play when they come to NYC in September.
One Thought to “The Start of Something”
I hope you got to see them. They really are great. Best band out of Austin in a while. It’s also nice that at least one indie-pop band from here has a singer that can actually sing.Sample their EP, especially “Long Haul”.
