Three songs to download at the bottom... they have a sound that makes me think that they will be popular...
Nineteen year-old Adam Baker, a kid from rural Apex, NC with a faultless ear and a potent desire to create unheard-of sounds, is the architect of Annuals. Under Adam’s stewardship, Annuals transform pop paradigms into sweeping, luxuriant sonic landscapes while remaining faithful to a wholehearted emotional core. Carefully layering each song with a thousand noises and feelings, Annuals camoflauge the deep simplicity of what they do, belying their youth with deftness & complexity.
Music fans seem to be looking for an answer to the questions of memory, surroundings, and love recently posed by musicians like Arcade Fire and Sufjan Stevens. Annuals have created a dense thicket of music that naturally replies, in a new and young voice, to these queries. All we have to do is listen.
