MP3 roundup - HoneyChild, "The Father"
Here's an elegant song that grabs you at the opening and sweeps you straight through it. The band behind it is HoneyChild, a Los Angeles-based indie group led by singer/guitarist Tobias Jesso. They're touring with Portugal The Man, and have a soft, intricate sound. "The Father" has lyrics with lovely descriptions of nature, delicate touches of bells at the bridge, and humming strings that run like an undercurrent in the background.
