J. Thoven: Wash it Won't Make it Clean
I randomly stumbled across J.Thoven while browsing through Spotify's "similar artists" recommendations. Again, randomly I stumbled across their set at SXSW this year. I was quickly reminded why these kids are ones to watch.
Their music draws on influences such as Fleet Foxes and Local Natives.
Atmospheric guitar riffs, heavy on the percussion, catchy lyrics, reverb...oh yeah, and easy on the eyes.
Probably one of the most admirable facts about J. Thoven is their album was made possible through a successful Kickstarter campaign. They are self-driven, DIY and damn good at it.
These Orange County boys were breakout stars at this year's CMJ and SXSW. Enough Said.
