The Umbrellas by The Umbrellas
About the Artist:
The Umbrellas are four renegade romantics crafting irresistible indiepop hymns. The band's self-titled 2021 debut album was a breakout moment, winning critical praise and fueling tours with everyone from labelmates Papercuts to Fucked Up. The Umbrellas coalesced in 2018 around a group of musicians with connections to the legendary San Francisco record emporium Amoeba Music. Singer and guitarist Matt Ferrera had previous links with bassist Nick Oka, as well as the powerhouse drummer Keith Frerichs. A chance encounter with Morgan Stanley singing karaoke at a Fourth of July party cemented the line-up around an avowed thirst for melody. "All of us love really earnest pop songs," Nick points out. "I guess we got to a point in our lives where we wanted to be genuine."
"Cool local SF band. Cute dreamy tracks. Fun poppy tracks. Jingle jangle joy. For fans of Belle & Sebastian and the like. Worth a listen :)" --Max
