Cymbals Eat Guitars

8 Jul

You may remember last week, I posted a bunch of bands from New York  that I recommended you all check out well I decided that Cymbals Eat Guitars are so good that they should have their own post.

So who are they? Well, Cymbals Eat Guitars are a beautifully epic and anthemic indie rock quartet from Staten Island and when I say indie, I actually mean it. They are the very true definition of indie – their breathtaking debut album ‘Why There Are Mountains’ is self funded and self released. And you can really sense the honesty that the band portray. With no record company bosses breathing down their neck telling them to write radio friendly unit shifters, the band have complete freedom in their creativity and you can really sense that when you listen to them. As well as that, you feel a sense of freedom that you have the almighty power to do anything. Although, remember kids, you can’t fly. So don’t even try.

Cymbals Eat Guitars have more hooks than a prize winning fishermen’s tackle box and their uplifting  floaty indie pop is something that I think you should all embrace into your lifes. 

The band, who played at the ICA last night, are in London all this week playing the following shows:

Tonight – Camden Barfly, Tomorrow – Brixton Windmill, Friday – Pure Groove (in store), Saturday – Proud Galleries.

For fans of: Pavement, Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, The Joy Formidable, The Flaming Lips and My Bloody Valentine
