This is one of our favorite times of the year. Yes, it’s cold out. Yes, we’re all sick of snow, sleet, rain and chilly winds. Yes, we’re all longing for the days where we can lazily listen to music, beer in hand, enjoying the sweet simplicity of life in the warmer weather months. But, this is the time of the year that we start hearing delicate, infatuating folk and indie rock songs that will populate our summer playlists, and for that, we’re always anxious to get to the first quarter of a new year.
Quickly earning a top spot in upcoming “Lazy Summer Indie” playlists, Austin-based sextuplet Hello Caller has just released their casually infectious tune, “Decent Sense.” An elongated intro complete with playful banjo picks, whistling, and relaxed percussion slowly walks us into the glowing nature of this song. It’s not until almost two minutes in that we’re introduced to vocals from front man Brian Ferguson, which adds another relaxing and textural layer to the equation. The end result has us pulling out the chase lounges, even if we’re still in the dead of winter.
Made up of members Brian Ferguson (guitar, banjo, lead vocals), Will Wolfe (drums, percussion), Brendan Bond (xylophone, trumpet, percussion, vocals),
Jeff Crozier (bass, vibraphone, vocals), Tyler Dunnam (guitar, vocals), and Caiti Coughlan (viola), Hello Caller is an act you’ll want to keep tabs on for the rest of 2015. Do so by following them on soundcloud and liking their facebook page.
