Colorful and creative: AU

Rambunctious drums, howling vocals, fluttery keyboards and guitars.

AU is the Portland project from singer/songwriter Luke Wyland and drummer Dana Valatka, and their latest EP is Versions.

At points I was reminded of Bon Iver’s howling, thrashy moments from For Emma; at others I thought of Grizzly Bear’s sound from Yellow House. The percussion leans toward sounding slightly psychotic, which works really well for their spastic take on music. 

I’ve embedded the two songs I thought best represented AU‘s sound on the right side of this page, so check those out or head here: http://www.myspace.com/peaofthesea.

Happy listening!
