Trails and Ways may have first grabbed attention with interesting and compelling covers of Miike Snow and M83 songs, but, over the past several months, it’s been the group’s original indie folk-pop songs that have kept our interest.
Over the past two years, the Oakland foursome has put out two EPs and a whole bunch of singles, gaining widespread blog buzz for a uniquely Brazilian-influenced sound that impresses with strong four-part harmonies and soaring, anthemic melodies. We expect both to be on display when Trails and Ways kicks off The Bay Brewed 2012 this Saturday, and it’s easy to tag this band as one to expect big things of in the future.
