The New York collective The Sharp Things are a little bit indie-pop, a little bit chamber-pop, and a little bit rock and roll. Mostly though, on the band’s recently released Adventurer’s Inn, you get a warm collection of thoughtfully crafted pop songs. Most of the members of The Sharp Things have been playing and recording together since the band formed in the late Nineties. Led and co-founded by Perry Serpa, the band suffered a sad loss when their long time drummer, close friend and co-founder of the band with Serpa – Steven Gonzalez – passed away. The band carries on, and are playing some shows opening for The Church. They play tomorrow night with them, Tuesday, March 10th, at World Cafe Live. Go here for more information about the show.
Below, download “Union Chapel,” from the band’s recent album.
