Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Dozen-strong alt-folk collective

Edward Sharpe
This musical collective led by Alex Ebert make big, open-hearted anthems that evoke a different era when cynicism and irony didn’t course through pop music like countermelodies. The band’s aesthetic, no matter how contemporary and organic its evolution, screams ’60s psychedelia and ’70s boho-rock right down to touring in a converted school bus with the band’s name in script on the side and a driver named Cornfed. These feel good sing alongs are epic. The vocal harmonies are performed with joyful abandon whilst the instrumentation brings together an original collection of instruments that are passionately played and infectiously layered resulting in the kind of sound that can leave you on a musical high for days. This band’s energy has the potential to eventually make even the most cynical amongst us go barefoot. MySpace
