Sounds like: Cute Folk
Reason to listen: Nicole has a tiny soprano voice that gains power through vocal layering and harmonies on her debut EP. The combination of her voice, strumming guitars, and violins leaves you wanting to drive through a field in a convertible with the top down in the summertime.

Sounds like: Folk Rock
Reason to listen: You might hear the lead singer playing a banjo with a bow on a few tracks. Also because their new album moment that you may have heard about in our video interview with the boys is out now and streaming in its entirety on bandcamp!
