Bands of Horses is a American rock band, led by frontmen Ben Bridwell, that formed in 2004. Originally from Seattle, the band now resides in South Carolina. They have signed with the Sub Pop record label, releasing their debut album Everything All the Time in 2006, and following up with Cease to Begin the following year. The group is preparing to enter the recording studio sometime this fall to make their next upcoming album.
Falling somewhere within the indie-rock genre, shaded with elements of folk, country, and Americana, Band of Horses embodies a lush, organic feel that shines with earnestness and honesty. Bridwell's bursts of crying wails in his high-pitched falsetto further adds to the openness exhibited his songs. Combined with their reverb-heavy, dynamic-laden, warm sound, Band of Horses offers a majestic grandeur as beautiful as their album cover from Cease to Begin.
