Come on up! The top of this house is an amazing place with warm music and company. Up in the Attic has newly found its roots in Tacoma, Wa and is welcoming you up to the attic.
It started as a conversation between Abby and Alex about starting a legit fake band. And that legit fake band in fact turned into a legit real band. This real band is now known as Up In The Attic. I think it is amazing to hear this story it really goes to show if you can dream it, you can live it. I am pretty sure that’s what everyone is TALKING about.
The more I listen, the more I become impressed. This group does really well at providing for its listeners and following with content. “Talking” is a ten minute through three tracks EP. And they make it count that is certain. Offering a mastered Indie sound. They have a bunch of videos on YouTube , so check out of their live sets and BTS.
Taking influence from many different artists, their style is a mixing pot of Joni Mitchel, Phoebe Bridgers, and The Indigo Girls. In the titled song “Talking”, you hear these influences ooze through. Love the DIY nature of how it was recorded; Up In The Attic recorded independently with help from a friend. There is a simple shaker layered in this song and it reminds me of the recording “Sweet Emotion” by Aerosmith. Not at all the genre but how well that shaker was utilized.
“Gone Away” is a track that carries a huge weight of emotion. The vocals of this song are filled with melancholy. You are surrounded by it; and it is unavoidable. The guitar strums along with a folk agenda, allowing the whole song to open up to share the story.
