In from Outer Space
Straight outta small-town Texas, not the Star Wars cantina, Eisley sounds more like the house band of a verdant magical forest or Rilo Kiley's ambitious babysitting charge than an alien juke joint combo. The five-piece group fulfills the whimsical indie-rock promise of its early EPs with its first full length, Room Noises. Swooping choruses and twinkling-stardust harmonies unfold from the drawling vocal sister act of Sherri and Stacy DuPree, sirens with just a whisper of twang in their voices, while Eisley's music incorporates bits of genial Coldplay-esque Britpop, coffeehouse jam sessions, and glimmering, crushed-velvet rock. Sounds like great stuff, if you can just avoid Greedo on your way out the door...
Eisley plays with Simon Dawes and Brighton at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 20, at the Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $12. Call 954-564-1074.
