FEATURED SONG: She Keeps Bees – “Radiance”

Brooklyn-based duo She Keeps Bees knows how to build a song through quiet swells and subtly-menacing grooves. Their latest, “Radiance,” heralds the coming of Eight Houses, due out September 16th, via a carefully layered track built on melancholy chords of piano against mild percussive rhythms and the sultry-sweet vocals of Jessica Larrabee. Four albums into their career, they’ve yet to rise beyond “best band you haven’t heard,” but the material here suggests they deserve a great deal more.

Give the track a listen via the streaming link above, and feel free to sound off in the comments. Their tour dates are below as well.

  1. This is actually great. Definitely keep my eyes out for more of them in the future. Despite being from Brooklyn it looks like they’re not doing a show here in New York. Oh wells better luck next time.

    Also nominated you guys for the Liebster Award.

    I got nominated as well and here’s my post to help showcase what it’s about.

    Love the music guys, keep doing what your doing.
