In case you didn't get a chance to see them at the 2011 all-ages battle of the bands competition, Sound Off at the EMP (at which our very own imaginary staffer Chris Estey judged), we'd like to introduce you to The Oh Wells hailing from Vancouver, Canada. You can hear their coy and commanding four-song debut ep on their website (go listen!).
These young ladies and a guy craft sparkling pop songs built around lush piano lines, sunny guitar, and melded vocals that twinkle with folk that blend the inspirations of Mirah, Feist and a tad of that dog.
