JULIE THE BAND
AN ACT OF COMMUNICATION
BABY BIRD

Championing an eclectic blend of indie rock teeming with instrumental depth and acerbic wit, savvy Los Angeles quintet Julie the Band present a boundless 15-track effort whose fearless compositions stir up an exhilarating sense of intrigue. AN ACT OF COMMUNICATION skillfully straddles between contagious pop-rock jangle and oddball quirk ("Do Si Do"), finding a comfort zone somewhere between the cautious expansiveness of Incubus, the Bic-lighter drama of Dashboard Confessional, and the zany resourcefulness of Beck ("Catch a Feeling", "Lonely Streets"). Showcasing a knack to adorn heady lyrics with the right mix of horns, strings, and whimsy ("Un-Tongue-Tied"), it's no surprise that the members of this band have ties in the entertainment industry in a behind the scenes capacity, as their endearing music reveals the kind of advanced production sensibilities and clever cohesiveness reserved for those working from the inside.
