Pale Young Gentlemen

Pale Young Gentlemen

You wouldn't expect this type of music out of Madison, Wisconsin. Think gypsy-folk orchestrations, not unlike Beirut, rich cabaret-esque vocals and Decemberist-level theatrics and you might come close to achieving the poppy, piano-based sound of the Pale Young Gentlemen but you'd still be a bit off. Their recently released self-titled debut is a rollicking, high energy affair. One you should definitely check out.

I must say, any band that's "not unlike Beirut" is most definitely worth a listen!
