Thanks to BIRP! for including "West Cozy" on the November 2016 playlist!
Fans of Joanna Newsom should definitely check out the brother-sister duo known as Creature People. Combining classical guitar and quirky, sugar-sweet vocals for a folk-infused brand of indie. “West Cozy” is the title track from the band’s 2015 release and leaves on with the impression that is was created by fairyfolk from some unseen realm of magic rather than actual human beings from Pittsburgh. Listen to “West Cozy” below and then dive on into other offerings from Creature People through their Bandcamp page.
Thanks to our new friends WeeClaire and Independent Clauses for giving us some links this week! It's fun to see clicks coming in from new places around the world. Please check out both of these blogs!
Creature People‘s Dark Ambitions is based on a recent trip to New York city.
It’s uncertain what went down in the Big Apple but as the track comes to a close, vocalist Kayli sings “dark ambitions are running this town, I don’t think I’ll stick around.” What happened? You decide!
The brother sister duo – Kayli and Ian – are a strange duo combining a 60s folk sound and awkward, haunting female vocals that make for an intriguing mix. It’s almost unnerving to listen at first but after a few plays, you’ll become utterly enchanted with the darkness that surrounds Creature People.
“West Cozy” – Creature People. By chance, I stumbled upon this text-based adventure game while I was listening to the song. Creature People’s mysterious, woodsy folk was the perfect accompaniment to a game that slowly unfolds itself as an adventure.
