Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

While the pair (Grant Olsen & Sonya Westcott, yeah, Arthur and Yu aren't their real names — weird, right?) are to date are most famous for being the first band to sign to Sub Pop spinoff label Hardly Art, we suspect that will all change once their debut record In Camera releases on June 19th. Much like Dean & Britta, the pair evokes a nostalgic, 1960's romanticism with their gentle, quirky harmonies and echoic production values. The tracks they've made available on their MySpace page are charmers for sure.
