Acoustic and electronic. Melodies and harmonies. Live instruments over rhythm loops. Hummable songs. Rock meets folk meets pop meets R&B meets country meets electronica. Totally awesome.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born from the ashes of Philadelphia underground favorites Confusion About Weather, the Sobriquets are multi-instrumentalists Dan Drago and James Hearne, supported by upright bassist Josh Neale and newly acquired drummer Nick Hughes.

The product of a twelve year collaboration, the Sobriquets combine hook-laden songwriting with lush, tight harmonies and waves of sonic intricacies. The subtle bedroom production belies smart arrangements, incorporating synthesizers and acoustic instruments alike. An electronic undercurrent drives heartfelt lyrics and rootsy guitars, bringing Hearne and Drago\'s loves of rock, pop, r&b, hip-hop, and country into sharp focus.

Recorded at The Sobriquets\' home studio, \"The Sobriquets\" is their debut LP.

\"[On] the band’s new self-titled and self-released album, you can hear equally the phantoms of loose-strung Americana, dewy trip-hop and an eccentric coffeehouse hybrid of the two... their novel approach to trusty singer/songwriter-isms may just see them breaking into new circles.\"
Doug Wallen - Philadelphia Weekly (Apr 23, 2008)

\"3.5 Stars out of 4: The Sobriquets album features a whole lot to enjoy, and very little to dislike... [they] are an act to look out for...\"
Bill McThrill - The Compendium (Sep 3, 2008)

\"...Known for their unapologetically hook-laden songs and intricate arrangements that juxtapose electronica with rootsy acoustics... One of the most salient quality of the Sobriquets is the band\'s musical resourcefulness. These guys will do anything with anything.\"
Greg Hanlon - Brooklyn Courier-Life (Apr 3, 2008)

\"Most alternative acts take at least five or six members to knock you off your feet. However, two guys, Dan Drago and James Hearne, are all it takes to get you going. They uniquely use electronica to support their acoustics. They are highly praised for their intelligent, emotional lyrics which some bands dream to possess. Emerging from Philadelphia is a fresh sound that has the potential to elevate independent rock. Recently enlisted upright bassist Josh Neale further demonstrates why this group is so rare in the sea of alternative players.
Amber Stewart - Vox Pop (Jan 24, 2008)\"
