Stargroves cover Sigur Ros
Followers of this blog know it is no secret I bow before the altar that is Sigur Ros. So when something comes in where a band is covering their music, it can be met with sort of the old "oh no...."
Stargroves have proved this to be wrong. Based out of NYC leader Teddy Watson took a three month hiatus from NYU to visit Iceland and focus on music.
Stargroves’ latest video is a cover of Sigur Rós's Njósnavélin. In the video they perform an intimate in studio session of the piece adding while their own unique style into the mix.
The album is built on a full rhythm section that includes Teddy Watson (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, banjo), Charlie Rauh (lead guitar, supporting vocals), Bryan Percivall (bass guitar, supporting vocals), Brad Whiteley (keyboard, synthesizer), and Max Maples (drums).
Stargroves will be playing several shows throughout the northeast, and will be releasing an album in spring of 2014.
The band has a few shows (including tonight)
4.18.14 Lancaster, PA @ Launch Festival
4.26.14 Albany, NY @ Move Festival
