So please meet my new favourite duo, currently known as Flannel Graph. Its Shayla and her friend Leon who make awesome music together and then occassionally post it on YouTube. Their sound is very Avalanche City mixed with Of Monsters and Men. In fact, I stumbled across them on Noise Trade when searching for artists similar to Of Monsters and Men, and now, although they only have 5 songs on their EP, I’ve been playing it non-stop.
The name Flannel Graph is taken from those old Bible stories they used to make for kids on TV using Flannel cartoons, which they would post on a board. Really a Flannel Graph is a story telling device, and Shayla and Leon use their music to tell stories. All songs on their EP are based on parables taken from the Bible. I’m so in love with this band right now.
