[Ed. Note: We've been doing a lot of premieres the last four months, and having our ear to the ground on exciting new music is a passion here at Baeble. That said, we've been thinking of ways to rebrand our "Premiere" content, and today, we're excited to bring you the first edition of "Baeble First Play." Moving forward, we want our Baeble First Play to speak to the best of new music that is sent our way so we're limiting ourselves to one Baeble First Play a day (though they won't necessarily be daily). And Steff & the Articles' alt-piano pop was the perfect place to start.]
Tuscon natives Steff And The Articles
have been making waves with their piano-pop melodies that paint a wide sonic landscape reminiscent of a more vigorous Regina Spektor. Beginning as the brainchild of Steff Koeppen in 2009, the singer songwriter collaborated with bassist Chris Pierce and drummer Tom Beech, picking up violinist Jessica Muiseke along the way. With an EP
and full length
already under their belts, the quartet has already seen appraisal from fans and critics alike, as well as earning a spot in mtvU's rotation of videos in the winter of 2013.
Today we're premiering their latest track, "Corner of the World", a soaring pop track that shares the individually personalized "corner" that Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo occupies.
Rolling drum licks set the foundation of the track as orchestral strings supply depth, similar to what "Tonight, Tonight"
achieves. The group has a round of tour dates this August on the west coast. In the meantime, check out our premiere for "Corner of the World" below:
8/6 SAN DIEGO @ Seven Grand San Diego
