The Head and the Heart
Off the strength of their initial self-titled release, this Seattle-based indie-folk band went from local darlings who met in Old Ballard's vibrant music scene in 2009 to a touring act with international acclaim. The organic popularity of their first release led to a record deal with Northwest label powerhouse Sub Pop in 2010, and the band went on to re-release the album in 2011 before putting out their sophomore Let's Be Still this October. With close-knit harmonies and plenty of spiritual and pastoral references, the band both reflects and embodies their Pacific Northwest roots while expanding nouveau folk tradition with pop-styled hooks and, as their name suggests, plenty of heart. Expect earnest lyrics with lots of strings and easy rhythms.
