Clare & the Reasons

This Brooklyn based band released their second album, Arrow, last year on the Frog Stand Records label. The band's original material is ethereal and well-constructed,  and utilizes many different sounds, from cellos to kazoos.  Additionally, they have done some ingenious covers, from Tears for Fears songs to show tunes.  My only caveat is that some of you might find Clare's voice a little too cutesy to become full-fledged fans, but give them a chance.

I can't believe how much I enjoy this song. I mean it in a very good way.

I agree. I can see why her voice could be annoying, but actually like it because there are not many others that take that approach to vocals. What would really be bad is if a bunch of copycat bands pop up.
