Hey Marseilles: The Comforts Of Home

Earlier this month, Hey Marseilles released their second LP, Lines We Trace. Judging from the fast-growing response to their 2010 debut, To Travels & Trunks, this Seattle-based band is all set to turn from exceptional local success story to a steady national force. Their songs build off the fashionably warm and immediate sound of chamber pop, replete with heart-tugging lyrics and a well-informed indie rock attitude. With a formula as wholesome as this, Hey Marseilles are nothing short of captivating. They will perform at Johnny Brenda’s in Philly on March 27, and the Mercury Lounge in Manhattan on March 28.
