Got a Lot of Light: The Trimmed Hedges

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Local Minneapolis quartet The Trimmed Hedges attempt to capture a number of genres throughout the band’s first full length release The Seas Elected, released locally through The Missing Stamp Collective. While the release has a general compliance towards diversity (see: banjo & slap bass) the band finds its strongest moments through the use of synth-forward indie rock. By basing its sound closer to that of a gentler, pop-heavy rock than many indie rock acts the band distances its experimentalism from the term itself, realizing more of a grounded accessibility than that of Animal Collective or any like act in the process.
