Pleased to Meet You: The Best Around
The perks of this pandemic, so it seems, is that we’ve been given the gifts of great new music from all over, but its always great to meet a new band from here in Austin…as is the case with The Best Around. This trio actually was born during the pandemic, which is alluded to in the first single you’ll here from their new Margaret EP. I love the song’s brand of acoustic indie pop rock; you can hear the layers placed atop the strum, buoyed by huge horns (never a bad thing!). Still, those space-aged keyboard and the slight stretch of the vocal tones provide just the faintest hint of quirkiness to keep the tunes interesting. This Friday you can hear the entirety of the new Margaret EP.
