Believers are a young, up and coming band out of Columbia, MO with some toe tapping, hip-shaking tunes that will surely make you smile. Their songs are rhythmically driven, and as a band with two drummers they’ve got a leg up on their competition. However, they aren’t just sticking two drummers together and saying, “Guys, go at it” – their drummers were so in sync that the time changes and rhythm manipulations looked easy, from where I was standing. The drummers were obviously my favorite part about the group, however their harmonies definitely piqued my interest. Not every one of their songs was a 10 for 10 in my book, but this band is definitely on my radar. Songs like “Sleeves” and “Forward Forward Back” reminded me of early Vampire Weekend and a cup of Animal Collective’s Strawberry Jams or Feels albums. On a couple tracks the lead singer gives off that Beirut feel, as well. Unfortunately if you’re here on the East Coast you missed their tour, but it looks like they’re headed over to the mid-west by way of Ohio. Also, I think the lead singer’s two references to the game of golf won me over, half because I grew up hitting the lynx with my grandparents and part because he was trying really hard to ” talk to the audience ” between songs. A for effort, dude.
