Fort Lean is five straggly looking dudes from Brooklyn. The frontman is what Taylor Swift would look like on steroids, I think. But I digress. Their music is a truly delightful blend of jangly rock and roll–reminiscent of The Walkmen and Young the Giant–with subtle beach-rock flourishes. I can never get enough of bands like this on my iPod. They’ve released two EPs a single to date. Their most recent release, Change Your Name, was released late last year. Four tracks short, its dreamy and idyllic. It’s sun kissed and yearning and bittersweet, but everso catchy. This is escapist pop-rock, if that’s a thing. Now it is. They’ve clearly mastered a sound, a sunny and feel-good one at that, that is more than likely to garner them some blogosphere attention. Fingers crossed for a full-length album in the next year.
