The Careful Ones
Initially struck by its Justin Vernon-esque vocals flowing into a Milo Greene-ish sound, The Careful One’s “Easy Tiger” piqued my interest immediately -- and that curiosity was well rewarded. Exploring their catalog, this band formed by two childhood friends frequently touches on hard truths (loneliness, loss, etc.) with delicacy and earnestness, yet never drifts towards the maudlin, with songs buoyed by carefully balanced instrumentation and light, gorgeous harmonies. Keep an ear out for their upcoming LP, The Foxes and The Hounds, and enjoy the album’s first two singles below.
