Eastern Phoebes is the home-recording project of two lovers: multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/sound explorer Ry Smith and holistic health guru/yogi extraordinaire Meg Bayley. The pair records and releases homemade EPs and albums featuring original artwork by friends.
My Plastic Sun
My Plastic Sun is a new band with a sound that is lush and ambient yet immensely powerful. Major indie blogs have been comparing them to Radiohead, Coldplay, Beach Houseand the Beatles. A sample of some of the reviewers and bloggers recent comments:
Cummings vocals sound like the voice of Coldplay and Radioheads indie baby lovechild. Indie Shuffle
Give It All Away, is an absolute gem, Johnnys vocals really shine, the EP is a strong debut from a band who I confidently predict will go far. ListenBeforeYouBuy
An incredibly appealing and strong debut EP. LittleLionGirl
The band have a sense of rock n roll tenderness that recalls Blur circa 1999 and dare-I-say The Beatles. Quite frankly, the heartbreaking Give it All Away is simply that good. Dont believe me? Listen for yourself. UKs GivePopAChance
This release is the product of musicians with stratospheric levels of talent creating spectacular melodies colored with gorgeous layering, pop sensibilities and immediately memorable lyrics. UpstateLive
The band is currently engaged on multiple fronts. Two time Emmy award winning cinematographers the Olson Brothers have just completed My Plastic Suns first music video. The band is also in the recording studio finishing off their first full length CD while at the same time gearing up for live shows. 2012 is gonna be a very busy and promising year for My Plastic Sun.
