Atlanta's Book Club, an indie folk septet (featuring members of Cassavetes and Oryx & Crake), re-imagines the classic marriage between him & her vocals and carefully crafted orchestration by transforming their heritage into sound unbound by history. Their new 5-song EP, Shapes On The Water, showcases the band's sweetly-sung coed harmonies nestled into thoughtful arrangements. The songs blend classic influences like Cash, Petty, Dylan, and Reed, with a country, pop, and indie spin. Singer-songwriter Robbie Horlick strums a nylon-stringed acoustic, leading the 7-piece band through his honest tales of love and heartache, with an interpretation as modern as it is hauntingly timeless.
