"This one's going out to the internet. For the internet and for the world. Also print publications," said the drummer of Street of Laredo
before diving into their infectiously catchy set. Seriously, is there a band more charming than these guys? It's hard to answer no after getting to know them.
The New Zealanders who currently reside in New York released their latest LP Wild
in October 2016, which featured "Silly Bones," a catchy tune that features a Foster The People-esque melody and "99.9%," a trumpet-filled, folk rock dream.
Overall, there's not a song by the band that fails to make you feel good. It's a record you'd spin to go running around an empty field with your friends on an autumn day - I don't know how often people actually do that - but they deliver tunes that make you want to do that. And I mean that in the best way possible.
We recently had the opportunity to shoot a rarely loud
session with the lovable band, where they brought a full band into the Baeble space - a drum kit, plugged in electric guitars, synths and even a trumpet. It's safe to say the entire office was dancing. Maybe a little bit of awkward dancing, but dancing nonetheless. In the interview portion, they talked about moving to New York and their new album Wild,
their passion shone through and only made us love them more.
So here's to the free spirits who love to scream "I got silly bones!" at the top of their lungs. Streets of Laredo will get you moving and laughing in our upcoming session, set to drop next week!
