I plan to give you guys amazing talent every Monday to feed your inner music monkey. The band this Monday is The Helio Sequence. Thid duo is absolutely amazing and their sound gives you that airy, summer, feel-good vibe. If you haven't heard of them before, here is some more information:
The Helio Sequence is an indie rock band signed to label Sub Pop. The band was formed in 1999 in Beaverton, Oregon, a suburb of Portland, Oregon, and consists of Brandon Summers on guitar and vocals and Benjamin Weikel, who has also played for Modest Mouse, on keyboards and drums. The band produces an eccentric brand of indie rock mixed with electronic elements. To date, they have released two albums on Sub Pop, two on Portland-based label Cavity Search and a self-released EP. Their fourth album, entitled Keep Your Eyes Ahead, was released on January 29, 2008, by Sub Pop.
The Helio Sequence toured with the British band Keane through the U.S.A. and in June, 2010 they were Keane's support act in several gigs through Great Britain during the British band's Night Train Tour.
