Sounding like an indie rock band with an urge to experiment with a blend of off-hand background sounds, Annuals create music that seems ordinary on the first listen. Repeated listens will reward you with a dense layering of noises and sounds that build a greater sound around the song structure.
That song you're hearing right now is called Brother, off of their album Be He Me. It's playing in the Galaxy Media Player above and to the right if you need to use the controls.
They hail from music mecca Chapel Hill and Raleigh, North Carolina. They're releasing their album Be He Me in October on New York indie label Ace Fu Records.
You can check them out as they tour in September and October with Tapes 'N Tapes (mostly), with an occasional show with label cohorts Man Man and a show with Art Brut.
