Yahoo’s “Band To Watch” in 2017 isn’t slowing down in 2018.
The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) are kicking off the year as major label artists, having released their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks in August of 2017. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies and FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial.
Press that have followed the band for some time call them “genre melding” and caution that you should try to catch a couple shows before deciding what they are all about. Every night they create a set list specifically for their audience.
Billboard Magazine says, “The Accidentals display a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops” and PopMatters Magazine says, you can’t define them by comparison to any one band, comparing them to a mashup of influences including, “The Beatles, The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Led Zeppelin, Ani Difranco, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, etc.” NPR says, “they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness, and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression.”
Texas Lifestyle Magazine made The Accidentals their “must-see” band of SXSW 2018, and staff writer Daniel Ramirez raves about their live show, saying, “They are defiant, young, powerful, and undaunted. You’re gonna wanna say you saw them before they were everywhere”.
