THE WEIRD YEARS
A brand new, dreamy folk-pop collaboration based out of Brooklyn, New York, The Weird Years have a clearly defined aesthetic built around gorgeous harmony stacks, haunting arpeggios, and otherworldly textures that conjure up comparisons to Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, Here We Go Magic, First Aid Kit, and the Stranger Things soundtrack. Witchy, glitchy, and ethereal, their debut album draws on the band members' wealth of musical experience in other projects to create a perfectly odd pop gem with a singular, and deliberately-sustained mood. The band members include Billy Libby (Fort Gorgeous, voted Deli's Artist of the Month), Hannah Winkler (Human Natural and VCTRY, whose song placement in Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina garnered them over 650,000 Spotify plays), Bess Rogers (solo artist and recent guitarist for Broadway's Head Over Heels), and Chris Kuffner (producer and instrumentalist for A Great Big World, Secret Someones, and numerous others). A supergroup of sorts, multiple members currently work with Ingrid Michaelson and A Great Big World, as producers and touring/studio musicians for those and other bands, in addition to working on their own projects. Perfectly timed for a winter release, the EP pairs well with a long walk in the forest at dusk, a mug of hot chocolate in front of your fireplace, or just a pair of headphones and closed eyes.
