We Are Not A Glum Lot

This 4 piece fronted by vocalist/guitarist Sam Erickson is from Colorado Springs and we thank them for making the trip to the station. Some element of their performance gave me chills (which doesn't happen too terribly often). Perhaps it is because this group is pretty young (half are seniors in high school and the other half, college freshman) and have a successful future of music making ahead of them. Or maybe it was the grandiose violin lines against hard riffs and mathy guitar licks that felt like some kind of different, anti-pop. With multiple influences that make for unexpected appearances in their song writing, this is a band to keep an eye on as they mature and come into their own.

We Are Not A Glum Lot opens for Sea Wolf at the Black Sheep in Colorado Spring January 24th.
