NYC folksters on the rise: Poor Remy

NYC folksters on the rise: Poor Remy

Formed in Ohio when they were still in college, indie folk band Poor Remy plays songs influenced by Mac Demarco, Angel Olsen and Radiohead. After graduating, founding trio Andrew, Adrian and Kenneth moved to New York where they share an apartment in Queens. I managed to squeeze in to their super packed EP release show at Rockwood a few weeks ago and (barely) see the faces behind the harmonica solos, the violin fiddling, the banjo parts and the voices. In a 45 minutes set they made the crowd go through a variety of emotions, enriched by a sincere and passionate delivery. Extremely comfortable on stage, they nailed harmonies and distributed smiles, which is kind of crucial since their lyrics often describe a feeling of loss and desperation. Check out the video for "Ghost" below, and keep an eye on their live schedule. - Anna Chalon
