If you don’t already know about this band, you will, very very soon. San Fermin is the brainchild of Brooklyn composer/songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone and is described as “a pastiche of post-rock, chamber-pop and contemporary classical composition.” Indeed! San Fermin create a charming balance within all of these areas of influence to deliver a sound that is equal parts addicting and ambitious.
Granted, I only have this one track for reference. But if anything is to be hinted at from Sonsick, I’m sure we’ll be hearing big things from San Fermin in the immediate future.
They are opening up for Villagers in a handful of upcoming shows on the east coast; including DC at Rock N Roll Hotel Thursday June 13. Tickets! Their debut, self-titled album will be out via Downtown Records this fall.
