Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, these three brothers called The Ceremonies offer minimal amounts of information on their history or where they’re headed, but they did permeate the indie music stratosphere with a dynamite track titled “Land of Gathering.”
After listening more times than I’m willing to admit, I find influences stemming from new-wave to post-punk while seemingly dipping their toes in some indie pop structure. The frenetic choruses and gigantic backbeats break away from the expected and bring forward a refreshing glimmer into an indie aesthetic that I’m loving right now.
When I first heard “Land of Gathering,” I immediately recalled an early Local Natives sound in the vocal harmonizing department. It might not be synonymous, but the similarities are definitely coherent enough to make them worth checking out.
No word on when they will be releasing any new songs, but you can grab “Land of Gathering” for free by clicking here.
