Seattle’s The Weather, Live on KEXP

↑ Seattle band The Weather performs live in the KEXP studio. Songs: Sentimental Guy, 1983, Honeymoon Phase, No Money.

Seattle, Washington’s The Weather blend atmospheric indie-pop, danceable rock and roll and dark psychedelica to create a sound distinctly their own. Though the band’s early output leaned to the folk side of pop music, the band has taken a slightly darker, more fluid, more atmospheric approach on it’s later releases and has continued to revisit older songs with new arrangements. Their untitled forthcoming third LP is sure to be a breath of fresh air for Seattle, which has become known for more folk-driven stylings in the past few years.

The Weather began as Campfire Ok, the creation of songwriter Mychal Cohen (vocals/guitar), who, in 2010, began recording what would become Campfire Ok’s debut album, Strange Like We Are (2011). After a very fruitful album cycle for Strange, the band has signed to the Seattle-based Fugitive Recordings and released their sophomore album, When You Have Arrived, in September of 2013.

In late 2013 the band experiences heavy line up changes which brought a new sound. The Weather was born. The band has just completed recording it’s debut album as The Weather with producers Chad Copelin and Jarod Evans.

Campfire Ok’s fans had erected a shrine to the lush, earthy soundscapes that made up the band’s live performances, and the media took notice. The same will surely be true for The Weather.
