Genre: Rock

Why We're Excited: Mimicking Birds' Nate Lacy sings about disturbances and anomalies in locations as far away as space and as close to home as the human brain. Unsettling and unabashedly beautiful, the band's songs possess a lithe, slippery quality that never dampens their sense of warmth and connection. Across Mimicking Birds' three great albums, Lacy sings of a kind of interconnectedness within humanity, even as we feel lost in the universe.
