A few weeks back I had the pleasure of seeing Labyrinth Ear play a fabulous gig just a few blocks away from my apartment at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn. It was their last appearance in a string of successful shows marking their North American debut at the CMJ festival here in NYC.
We were treated to a wonderful set made up of songs from the Oak and Apparitions EPs including my favorites ‘Humble My Bones‘ and ‘Amethyst Days’, which you can watch below. We’ve had our eyes on these two for quite some time and after falling in love with their unique brand of moody electro pop, it was fabulous to watch them deliver live and see that they are already gaining a following… people in the venue were going as far as to excitedly shout requests at them!
After the show I got the chance to chat with Tom and Emily for a few minutes, where they told me that Emily had unfortunately got sick the first day of CMJ, I would never have guessed because she sounded amazing. I’m happy to report they are just as lovely in person as they are via email!
You should look out for their first full length album which is set for release in 2013, and if you aren’t already familiar with them get up to speed by checking out all our Labyrinth Ear songs and videos here and the ‘Magnolia‘ mixtape they completed for us back in 2011.
