Originally the solo project of Nashville musician Angela Plake, Bandit is now a full-fledged band rounded out by guitarist Dan Bishop and drummer Charles Miller. Together, the three piece makes gorgeous and cavernous indie rock with ample amounts of reverb and engaging hooks. On January 20th, they’ll release their debut album, Of Life, which they’re preview today with a new song called “Brain”.
“Brain” sees Plake’s formidable voice overpowering jangly, interwoven guitars. With its chord progression getting inspiration from ’90s indie rock and second wave emo, the song is a perfect fusion of wistful melodies and aggressive distortion. Listen in below.
