Published Aug 23, 2012Ontarian folk-rockers Inlet Sound swung by the Exclaim! office one drizzly summer afternoon to record a session on our back deck. The band is currently gearing up for the release of their debut album, The Romantics, on October 16, and this video was filmed a few days before they headed out east on a brief tour of the Maritimes.
Using such instruments as an electric mandolin, five-string bass and digital piano, Inlet Sound evoke an orchestral and seafaring vibe that recalls the Decemberists. This song, "Romantics I," is the first of two parts that will make up the title tracks on their full-length, and should serve as a good indication of what's to come in the fall.
