Live/Concert

Shearwater with Laura Gibson

When: Fri., March 18, 8 p.m. 2016

Shearwater has been touring and releasing music for years now, but since they linked up with Sub Pop Records in 2013, they’ve never been better. Lead singer Jonathan Meiburg has been at the core of the band for years and his musical stylings are always influential on the band. Their latest release, Jet Plane and Oxbow, sounds like nothing the band has done before. They are following the path of other indie-pop bands like Chvrches and City and Colour. Some light synth and drum machines make for an ’80s-inspired album. Meiburg even sounds like Bowie on the lead single “Quiet Americans.”
