Why do we like this?

Hey y'all, I'm back! Oh, you didn't realize I haven't been saturating your indie feed recently? That's cool, too. 

You know what else is cool? "O Zephyr" from artist Ptarmigan. They "embrace [their] nerdiness" the same way I embrace mine, so lets collectively nerd out:

"Ptarmigan" is a type of bird, and "zephyr" is a term that refers to the west wind. An apt combination if you ask me. 

Pulling from influences like mythology and fantasy, "O Zephyr" is a mellifluous celebration of music as a dynamic and flowing organism. It doesn't exist in a vaccum, but is rather built and rebuilt upon by external influences focused through the artist's lens. 

The melodic banjos have an almost ominous feel to them, providing a hard-edged backdrop for gauzy vocal harmonies. With less than 20 followers on SoundCloud, this artist boast an impressively sophisticated sound. Hop on the back of the wind while you can.
