Curtains For You, What A Lovely Surprise To Wake Up To
Hooks and harmonies — it’s a time-tested recipe for great tunes, and seemingly a genetically programmed missive for Seattle band Curtains For You. This multi-talented quintet has served up a delicately devastating sophomore album with What A Lovely Surprise To Wake Up Here. Building on the groundwork they laid with their self-released debut, Heaven’s Waiting, these fine gentlemen are set to start lips a-buzzin’ and hearts a-flutterin’ with a collection of impossibly classic and thoroughly contemporary nuggets that examine these complicated times with a well-trained eye, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s soul and the instant accessibility of a jingle writer. The band first gained notice when veteran Seattle musician Carrie Akre (Hammerbox, Goodness) stumbled upon Matt Gervais at a songwriting class she was teaching. One listen, and you’re hooked. One performance, and you are smitten beyond words. With What A Lovely Surprise To Wake Up Here, this hook-and-harmony-laden juggernaut is poised to turn more than a few heads and win over more than a few hearts. Resistance, as they say, is futile – just take a listen and see for yourself.
