Duluth’s favorite rock minimalists, who describe themselves as “Joy Division meets Simon & Garfunkel,” have quietly been turning it up for more than a decade. Internationally lauded for their hauntingly hypnotic harmonies and gentle but powerful orchestrations, the trio has a newfound sound that cascades and sparks through increased tempos and fresh sonic ideas but still maintains the earnest beauty of their earlier work. Enjoy the shimmer of an August evening with one of Minnesota’s most significant bands.
