There’s no shortage of folks who gripe about there not being enough time in a day to get it all done, but you wouldn’t count Sarah Everton and Rob Garcia among them. The two are undaunted by time and seem to only find great opportunities in a tight timetable.
When they lost the drummer of their previous band just two weeks before a tour, rather than cancel, Sarah took up the drums and thus was born Reading Rainbow. They played the booked shows with freshly minted songs in tow.
Earlier this year, they were invited to participate in the Weathervane Music/WXPN Shaking Through project, where artists are brought into a professional studio setting to record a new song. Some of the other artists featured in the series include Sharon Van Etten & Twin Sister. But while all of the previous bands have recorded a single song, Reading Rainbow convinced the staff to record three of their songs.
The duo play scrappy, fuzzy pop nuggets, with big hooks and and overlapping vocals that make you want to sing along to each song. Last month, they embarked upon a mini-tour along the East Coast with Brooklyn’s Coasting, promoting the two bands’ new split 7″. Reading Rainbow have also recently released their second full-length, entitled, Prism Eyes, on Hozac.
