Log In Registration

It’s hard to talk or even think about the Railbird of 2012 Brooklyn as the same one that had their start in Saratoga a few years back. Some things have remained familiar and consistent, like the two-headed creative team of vocalist Sarah Pedinotti and guitarist Chris Kyle. But as the lineup has shifted with the band’s change in geography, so has their sound, from a roots-oriented rock outfit to something truly deserving of both tags “experimental” and “pop.” Their new EP, Lucky, takes its place in an archipelago of influences including Deerhoof, the Dirty Projectors and Little Dragon. We named these guys Best Band for a couple years when they were local enough for the title and are tempted to gush accordingly whenever they make a homecoming. Hand Habits and Sun Burdens will open.
