This such a likable band! I like their dynamic and uplifted style, their music sounds very nature and travel-inspired. Would like to hear them live.

I've never had a chance to dig into anything else they've done, and I didn't read all the OP but when I clicked the video I thought I recognized the vocals. I hear "Little Talks" on the alt stations around here all the time.

What a great band, I personally love Organs and Winter Sound!
Sometimes they remind me of Arcade Fire, really nice
