Review: The Pistol Arrows

The Pistol Arrows
(Engine Shed Records)

That’s exactly what I’m calling you to do “look!”  This is a brilliant mellow rock record from one of the hottest new indie acts the pistol arrows.  The song writing abilities of front man Eric Sarmiento is just out of this world.  Especially on the dream pop ballads “look!” and “tangled and strangled”.  Also the pistol arrow obviously have some deep country roots that play out on their music with comparisons as far stretching as Grandaddy and Bright Eyes.  So in short this music is quite open to many different influences.  The hooks are impressive and the band is inventive so if you’re looking for that little something this month check these guys out.
