New York has been pumping out some really interesting bands and artists of late: Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells and Azealia Banks, to name a few. So of course a new four piece from Brooklyn called People Get Ready has caught our attention. They are a combination of talents: founding member Steven Reker has toured as a dancer and guitarist with David Byrne, while Luke Fasano is a former member of the indie pop band Yeasayer. Ahead of the release of their debut album, People Get Ready has released the first single, Windy Cindy. Sighting inspiration from Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, the track is a reflection on romanticism and liveable art incorporating swelling guitar, jumping drums and one sunny voice. We can’t wait for the album.
