Hide In The Sanctuaries
Balancing the jangly guitars of the 60s with the arty cool of 90s indie rock, New York City quartet The Sanctuaries are a welcome addition to a scene that has so often lost sight of songwriting. With each member of the band providing a distinct and essential role in the group’s formula, their songs range from the bouncy pop of "House of Noise" and drifter ballads ("Heaven is a Mountain," "Bedouin Tea") to the Kraut-influenced drone of "Soft Crime,” creating a sound that is equally classic and contemporary.
Beautifully recorded by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, JEFF The Brotherhood) in his Nashville studio, The Sanctuaries' debut, Annette, has an essence of timelessness. Stylishly performed and produced, The Sanctuaries have released a timeless jangly treat.
