March 26, 2010 – Acrylics, Lissy Trullie, Bear Hands, Holy Ghost @ Glasslands, NY
The good folks at PopGun took control of Glasslands Gallery on Friday, March 26th, for their monthly throwdown. This months party featured an amazing line up: deck set from the disco daddies of DFA’s Holy Ghost! and live sets from Pocketknife, Acrylics, Lissy Trullie, and Bear Hands. Check out some pictures from the show and download some preview tracks below:
The NYC band plays indie pop rock, but somehow manage to steer clear of the 80’s new wave sound thats so heavily dominant now. Instead, Acrylics conjure a retro sound, but one that harks from a different era; the 70’s. Formed around songwriters Molly Shea and Jason Klauber , their male/female vocal combo ,layered by gentle synths and some sweet lap slide guitar gives the band a really crystallized 70’s pop-influenced sound that has at times a Linda Rondstadt/Fleetwood Mac feel to it.
