BELIEVERS RELEASE DEBUT SELF TITLED EP

Its always pleasing to see a band finally be able to realise their undoubted potential after doing the hard yards, especially when there are so many artists out there that emerge from their 'bedrooms' and 'basements' to instant blog acclaim (not that there's anything wrong with that by the way). So it is the case with Believers, the music project of Wesley and Tyler Powell. Having emerged in Columbia, Missouri in 2009, and quickly moving to the independent oasis that is Austin, Texas they had difficulty bringing their musical vision to tangible reality. So they shelved it until two years ago when they returned home from various quarters and enlisted dual drummers Pete Hansen and Taylor Bacon and instrumentalist Travis Boots in a bid to bring their brand of expansive pop and tropicalia to full fruition.

That has resulted in an outstanding self titled debut EP containing six tracks that have their roots in both western pop as well as tropicalia, Latin and West African music. It's probably the last style of music you'd expect to come out of the US centre, but Believers are dreamers, utilising vivid imaginations to interweave complimentary and delicately written melodies that sit alongside and inside sprawling bass lines and intelligently powerful percussive elements. That music also contains nods to the fundamental relationship between humanity and nature, firmly establishing organic respect; establishing themselves as a mere part of it, not above or outside of it. This is all topped off by vocals that croon and swirl their way around these cerebral, yet infinitely accessible music arrangements perfectly.

Believers is available now as a very generous name your price download from their Bandcamp and excitingly, on limited edition vinyl (500 copies) complete with hand printed covers for just US$10. Highly recommended folks. With 'Forward Forward Back' going great guns at number 13 in this weeks Top 30, listen to the excellent opening track, 'Sleeves' below.
