Ever since their first project in 2004, Band of Horses have continuously developed their sound. This is especially true for vocalist and guitarist Ben Bridwell, whose previous project Carissa’s Wierd featured a more stripped down emotional chamber rock sound. Band of Horses takes this core sound and evolves it to greater heights, creating an uplifting listening experience. The cynical remnants still remain, but the folk and traditional indie rock components that have been added to make this sound more dynamic and fluid. Their latest album Why Are You OK sounds like a folk soaked summer album, but one that still has just the right amount of edge. All this adds up to the perfect festival act, so it’s no surprise that they are playing the Austin City Limits Festival on Friday. Band of Horses stopped by Studio 1A and you can check out the whole session right now before the fest!
