Bridges and Powerlines
"Engineering nerds?" (Pitchfork) who write nostalgic fuzz pop that is "incontrovertibly fun" (Yahoo Music). Formed in Brooklyn in late 2008, bridges and powerlines’meld of harmony-laden three-minute pop songs and angular indie rock has received acclaim from a host of tastemakers including Paste, Popmatters, and the New Yorker, and earned them the perilous tag of "a band to watch" (the L magazine). Their new LP National Fantasy is filled with stories of love and loss, and was thematically inspired by the interband relationships in Rumours-era Fleetwood Mac. A soaring and anthemic record, National Fantasy is filled with the strong melodic sense and propellant rhythmic underpinnings that has characterized bridges and powerlines throughout their career.
