Though one of the newer bands in town, Pree has nevertheless been spreading their expressive tunes all around, making their rounds at the local clubs, some smaller venues & house shows. And in the process, leaving their pretty melodies embedded deeply in the minds of all who hear.
The band take their name from a Neutral Milk Hotel song, “A Baby For Pree,” and appropriately so as these songs share a similar, timeless narrative quality.
Led by May Tabol of Le Loup, her voice at times recalls early Chan Marshall or Woelv, accompanied here by Chris Dewitt on drums. Their live line-up is rounded out with David Barker on guitar and Vanessa Degrassi on mandolin and flute.
Their full-length is still a few months from release, but look for it to feature some familiar names in the liner notes, as the album features contributions from members of These United States, Exit Clov, Donny Hue & The Colors, and more. Slated for release on The Kora Records this spring, you probably want to go ahead and mark your calendar from now.
