Watch: Oakland Indie-Poppers Legs Keep a Steady, Smoky Focus in "Two Colours"
Legs is a newish indie-pop band from Oakland whose two original members, Jeffrey Harland and Matt Bullimore, met in a parking lot while trading Weezer bootlegs. They eventually started the band that became Legs -- a melodic low-key five-piece that will release its debut album on Loglady Records April 23.
First single "Two Colours" features sometime-vocalist Ameilia Adams on the low vocals, and puts all this band's strengths on display: buoyant melodies, understated (nearly lo-fi) production, and an interesting major/minor tension. The video is rather odd, but suits the song well: It consists of one steady shot of Adams, with colorful washes of smoke wafting around, and blends in footage of other members playing their instruments. Check it out, and catch Legs performing at an afternoon show this Sunday, March 24, at the Knockout with Pink Films and Reds, Pinks, and Purples.
