The New York band  is on tour for their album True Hallucinations on Other Music Recording Co. They were picked as one of SPIN’s “Best New Artists” recently and the record has been receiving rave reviews.

The group began as a home recording project of Brian Harding (ex-Hymns) and Amalie Bruun (ex-Minks) and is now a five-piece rock band.

From the press release: “Recorded by John Siket (Blonde Redhead, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth), True Hallucinations demonstrates a variety of vintage British and New Zealand influences mixed with a healthy dose of Velvets jangle, and power-pop harmonies.” The video for the song “Ken” is said to be “an homage to the classic Replacements anti-video for ‘Bastards of Young’.”
