San Francisco Based Symbols Of The West Are A Band To Watch Out For In 2013

Symbols Of The West "Save My City"

Above is a live studio recording of the great track "Save My City" from San Francisco's Symbols Of The West - a group I predict we'll be hearing a lot more of in 2013. The above version, recorded about a year ago, is slightly different from the new version of the song - the lead single off the duo's debut album A Thousand Lights,” that will be released by Rock Shock It! Records next Tuesday, Feb 26th. The indie electro pair, comprised of members Lauren Stark and Nat Kendall, are actually from Montana but based in San Francisco. The new ten song album, which was recorded at Hyde Street Studios and Magnolia Records with producer Chris Wonzer with later mastering by by TJ Lipple, who had mastered the MGMT Time To Pretend EP and also had recorded Nat’s first release back in 1998. captures their refreshingly unique sound that's built on layered guitars and synthesizers with dreamy hypnotic vocals, and has drawn favorable comparisons to such other outfits as Of Monsters and Men and Beach House. A few nights ago they played theNight Light in Oakland (the club/bar that incidentally will be showcased here on the Ameoblog in the coming week). To find out about upcoming shows for the band visit Symbols Of The West's website.
