New Band Love

I have a new favorite band.  Speak.  They are A-MAZ-ING.  Yes, the deserve the all caps and exaggerated pronunciation.  I am even declaring that they will be the next big deal!  That in itself is a big deal.

We decided to go see Speak on a whim.  Knew nothing about them except that they “go good with” Passion Pit, MGMT, and Miike Snow.  Figured you can’t go wrong with that line up.  They look about 15 years old but they are actually 23-ish.  We found the oldest women closest to the stage and took a chance that they might be the mothers.  Turns out they were aunts and were more than happy to tell us about their adorable nephew.

While watching new bands, I usually focus on selecting my favorite song.  This time I was all about selecting my favorite band member.  His name is Joey and he plays bass.  Something about the skinny jeans, golf shirt, and eyeglasses lanyard did it for me.  Is that what those string things are called?

All flirting aside, the music really was very good.  Their sound is a little funk mixed with British pop and electronic.  At some point you will think they just hit an amazing falsetto but then you realize puberty may not have happened quite yet.  I’m kidding…  Their live performance is far superior to the album.  This was only their second time to play in Dallas. However, they are Austin boys and not very far from our bubble.  So show your support and go see them soon.  Tell Joey hi from the blonde woman that looks like she wants to be his cougar.  Again…I’m kidding…

P.S. – I almost forgot to mention my favorite song. Foreign Love.
