The discreet power of Backwords - live at Pianos on March 3

The discreet power of Backwords - live at Pianos on March 3

With their gentle lo-fi waltzes and sparse crooner-less country-ish ballads, Brooklyn's own Backwords are bringing back optimistic atmospheres reminiscent of Camper Van Beethoven's unforgettable record Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart - minus that band's legendary violin of course. Shots in the Dark in particular - with its lack of pretension, pleasant crooked melody, and lyrics about friendship - is a song that has the rare power to keep you company. The band is currrently working on their upcoming album in their house/studio, and will be performing live at Pianos on March 3 and at Sycamore on March 5.
