New Music: Vetiver, Everyday

Filed under: Download, Indie Pop, Song — Tags: , — Greg @ 8:11 pm


Song: Everyday
Artist: Vetiver
Album: Tight Knit
Label: Sub Pop Records
Notes: none
Analysis: I hadn’t heard of Vetiver before yesterday, let alone heard of anything by them. Before I listened to this track, I Wikipedia’d them and came across a page about a type of grass before being redirected to the group’s page. I was skeptical about there being anything interesting about a band named after an Indian grass, but I was pleasantly surprised. ‘Everyday’ is a bubbly, toe tapping guitar song that I can somehow picture on top 40 radio if it ever got into the right hands. It could also just as easily fit into an Apple commercial or a Paul Rudd romantic comedy. Vetiver’s album Tight Knit is gearing for a February 17th release, and could be a sleeper if they are ever discovered by the mainstream.
