For lovers of Dr. Dog comes Imaginary Tricks, a soulful indie rock band creating beautiful, buttery ballads. Composed of Mike Visser and Harlan Muir, Imaginary Tricks redefines what it means to create this style of music. Their newest song, “Birds,” begins by establishing a strong thumping beat as its backbone and from there continues with layers of guitar and bass on loop. The result is a track with texture, a killer guitar solo, and some pretty darn addictive vocals.
A band of pure innovation, they bring a fresh perspective to the world of indie rock. Keep an eye out for their EP, Skommel, which will be available on March 24.
