Published Mar 13, 2014Back in the day, referring to your band as a mixture of "indie folk" and "art-country" would have gotten you whipped at the honky-tonk. Nowadays, combining old and new instrumentation is perfectly acceptable in the world of country music. Just ask Toronto roots ensemble Beams, whose glorious harmonies and twang-filled acoustics perfectly combine the hustle and bustle of the city with the laidback atmosphere of the countryside.
Don't believe us? Than check out our recent Exclaim! TV session with the band at the bottom of the page.
Recorded at the always cordial 3030 Dundas West, watch as the atmospheric country outfit delivers a foot stompin' rendition of new song "The Way We Run," which is propelled by the band's unbridled energy and chugging riffs. Check out the video now in the player below, which can be found underneath the band's upcoming tour dates.
