Bands You Should Listen To: Hey Marseilles

IMG_2258

I first heard about Hey Marseilles (prounced “Mar-sigh”) from my cousin who lives in their hometown Seattle. They sat loosely on my radar until their latest album, Lines We Trace, was released and I saw they were playing a show at The Satellite in LA.

I bought a last minute ticket and made my way to their show alone. Turns out, the singer Matt was sick and they were having a hard time deciding whether or not to cancel the show. Fortunately, the six-piece band was able to make up for the lack of vocals when they decided to perform an all-instrumental set.

Their songs rise and fall with an honesty that makes it feel like they’re scoring your own movie.

Sounds Like: Beirut, Decemberists, Death Cab For Cutie

Gotta Listen To: Heart Beats, To Travels And Trunks, Elegy
