Hailing from the rain capital of the country, Seattle, Washington, Lucy Bland lets the rain inspire their music rather than drown them out. Channeling those long winters and rainy days into each opus, Lucy Bland combines delicate drops of sound into a deluge that is indie, folk, and electronic all at once. The experience begins with rich, propulsive rhythms from violinist Katie Mosehauer. Next are hints of spare gospel hymns and ‘60’s sci-fi soundtracks from multi-instrumentalist Tim Stedman. Electronic beats emerge from a table roofed with knobs, wires and blinking lights, and Todd Wallar marshals the song to shape. A pedal steel guitar suggests the coming brilliance, and a mood materializes. Cat Biell colors this picture with whispered words about the sea, the sky and everything in between. Quiet and clear, tantalizing and powerful--the sound is unmistakable. It fills the hall and drifts into the street. Earth spins. Rain falls. Clocks melt. Hear the sublime sounds of Lucy Bland and their debut EP, Lucy Bland’s First Recital, on iTunes and CDBaby or 90.3 KEXP.
"A really really really cool debut EP"
— John in the morning, KEXP radio
"With [Cat Biell’s] whiskey ice cream sweet, smooth, and bracing vocals, her tiny harshly existential bubble observations are cloud-carried by sweet cotton burbles of keyboard mirth and mellow, with perfect blue music Music is rarely this pleasurable, meaningful, and soothing on tracks like "Centuries" and the Suzanne Vega-ish "Streaker." A very charming debut EP."
"Down tempo and moving, Lucy Bland is anything but bland. With the vocals of lead singer Cat Biell surrounded by some cello, guitar and keyboard, the music just seems to flow so easily. It is perfect for that quiet evening or lazy afternoon."
