Annuals: Such Fun

When you pick a few Bob "every tree needs a little friend" Ross paintings for the cover art you expect a band with sunny tunes. And sure enough, the Annuals, a six piece from Raleigh, NC, peddle joyous sounding indie tunes on their Such Fun album. Despite the fact that all members are in their early twenties they play like seasoned veterans for a few bars and then dive in at the deep end of a song and coming up for air just when you start to think they have lost it.

Keep an eye on Anna Spence, a well versed keyboard player, who shines on most of the tracks.

Adam Baker: songwriter, vocals
