Here’s an excellent find from our inbox. Brandon Hoogenboom (Lead Vocal & Guitar), Josh May (Vocals, Drums) and Josiah Willows (Vocals, Violin) are Set Sail; a sunny trio from Sydney, Australia. Their music has an invitation to be carefree wrapped inside of it, and it’s never more apparent than on their lead single; “Home”. The violin frolics, the vocals skip, and the percussion lays a blanket down. Set Sail has a unique way of showcasing themselves, often performing several shows in one day, to crowds of a hundred or more. They just pick up and move to a different park or street or store front. This May, they’re leaving for a world-wide tour to celebrate their Riley Moore EP, performing in a whopping 46 cities in 6 different countries. They’ll even be in New York City on May 9th at 12:00 in a yet named location. So if you’re walking the city streets on a Monday, and you happen to see three guys, standing on milk crates, performing their hearts out, stop and take a moment to listen. It could be Set Sail.
