Bright Eyes, indie rock band. I fell in love with Conor's voice and the emotions that I can fell in ever song. The lyrics are breathtaking, and will make sense after the third listening of the song
My favourite song-a perfect sonnet.
Can i second this? One of my favourite bands, although I've gone from hating certain songs to loving them... It's weird, I'd recommend everyone perseveres with this band, when you find one song you like you'll find the others more appealing.
For me the one that really stood out was Bowl of Oranges, (after having listened to the album Wide Awake and found it okay) it's just so lovely and... yeah, lovely. Some others you should definitely try Nothing Gets Crossed Out, Let's Not Shit Ourselves (it's basically an 8 minute song, but really don't let that put you off), At the Bottom of Everything, Take It Easy, Easy/Lucky/Free, Four Winds, Make a Plan to Love Me.
I'll leave it there I think. =P there's quite a lot of variety there, and that's missing out all the older stuff (it seems Miss Austen would be the person to consult on that)
I got into Bright Eyes through a friend who just kept pestering me, now really I do love it/them/him. It's really quite rewarding, although there are some infuriatingly awful lyrics among otherwise lovely songs, which took me a while to come to terms with, but it's good more often than not.
Seriously, give it ago, don't dismiss it as some twee indie as a few of my friend's have, and as I did.
