Curtains for You - Heaven's Waiting - 2007

Seattle-based five-piece rock band Curtains for You rely strongly on retro influences heard in their Beach Boys-esque melodies, if not immediately apparent in their more broodingly indie lyrics. The group is comprised of Matthew Gervais (guitar and lead vocals), Mikey Gervais (guitar, sax and vocals), Nick Holman (bass, euphonium, and vocals), Peter Fedofsky (piano and vocals), and Dave Lawrence (drums), with writing duties split evenly between Matthew Gervais and Fedofsky. Among their many influences they cite Harry Nilsson, Rufus Wainwright, and, of course, the ubiquitous Beach Boys. In spring of 2007 the five-man team released its buoyant debut, Heaven's Waiting, which received wide airplay on local stations and led to the subsequent signing to Spark and Shine Records. -AMG
