L.A.-based trio Sir Sly has only been around a few years but they’ve wasted no time making their mark on the indie-rock world. Their 2014 debut album, You Haunt Me, produced the memorable title track plus “Ghost” and “Gold.”
The band, which includes vocalist Landon Jacobs and instrumentalists Hayden Coplen and Jason Suwito, has been rockin’ around North America ever since, playing with the likes of Alt-J, MGMT, Wolf Gang, Foster the People, Missio and Future Islands (to name a few). They’re now riding “High” in support of their follow-up full-length, Don’t You Worry, Honey, which dropped this past summer.
The band, which is known for its synth-friendly sound, seems to draw influences from a wide range of music on the new album, from late '90s rock and pop to R&B. “Altar” would no doubt have Jodeci, Black Street and Keith Sweat grooving. You will be too on Sunday night.
The trio will be back at The Pageant on January 29th with K. Flay, so if you have to miss out now you can see them again real soon, but if not, kick your shoes off “&Run” (yet another of the band’s noteworthy tracks) before tickets sell out. —Cory Weaver
