The Old Ceremony 

From subtle twang with impeccable harmonies to driving rock rhythms full of late-night swagger, they continue to draw fans of indie, folk and country alike.

The band has recently released its first crowd funded EP, Remedy, which offers the same lyrical strength and luscious, sophisticated harmonies noted on their first two albums. Sample some of these sounds here.
