Artist Of The Day - The Elwins

The Elwins may be from Keswick, Ontario, but the cold weather seems to have not affected their music. There's nothing cold about their music, from the bright cartoons on the artwork for their debut full length And I Thank You, to the warm summery indie pop rock music that they play. Vocalist Matthew Sweeney sounds like a brother of Forrest Kline of Hellogoodbye fame, and the musical arrangements have the lush feeling of songs from Would It Kill You?. But the band also brings in the beachy feelings from the 60's, or if you're looking for a more modern comparison, Best Coast minus the massive reverb would do. And I Thank You is the perfect album for the upcoming summer, and with warm weather already here, it's worth purchasing right away. You can stream and purchase And I Thank You on the band's Bandcamp, right here.
