SONG OF THE DAY: Typhoon- “Young Fathers”

As much as I hate the term “indie rock,” I think Typhoon fits into the label perfectly. Typhoon is a band from Oregon made of about eleven members. Their music is marked by complicated orchestration that results in epic arrangements heard throughout their songs. White Lighter, their most recent album, is filled with grand songs containing percussion, violin, hand claps, whistles and a xylophone here and there. “Young Fathers” is a mix of adventurous instruments and sounds under (and sometimes over) Kyle Morton’s smooth voice. The females in the group sing some of the most interesting parts of the track, and their sound is unexpected when first heard. Overall a catchy, solid sounding song that I think most people would enjoy.
