This trio – guitarist Nick Kivlen, drummer Jacob Faber, and bassist and lead singer Julia Cumming – released their first studio album, Human Ceremony, on Fat Possum Records earlier this year. There’s a bit of the Carpenters, Tame Impala and Daughter to their alternative folk.
Next month the group will release a four-track EP of covers, titled From the Basement, which includes songs by Neil Diamond, Spiritualized and Jonathan Richman. ‘Life’s a Gas’ is a slow-brewed interpretation of the T Rex original, and a velvety summer evening wind down.
Life’s a Gas appears on From the Basement EP, released on September 4, 2016, on Fat Possum Records.
