Some people might think it’s hard to create rock music that doesn’t sound like anyone else in this day and age, but Okkervil River still manage to do that. Even though they have had a slew of lineup changes, frontman Will Sheff’s somber vocals are just as powerful as ever. The graceful melodies created by the rest of the band create an elegant contrast that make their newest album Away a raw and unforgettable experience. Their songwriting paints a vivid picture of what it is like to be emotionally overwhelmed. Catch our Studio 1A session with Okkervil River before their show at The Parish.
