Alcoholic Faith Mission are a Brooklyn-based six-piece indie-folk collective let by a duo of Danish song-writers, Thorben Seierø Jensen and Sune Sølund, that I recently discovered in my Sound Cloud Dropbox the other day. The track that caught my attention – “Running With Insanity” – is from their latest EP And The Running With Insanity. It is one of those tracks that immediately catches your attention with a hand-clap happy rhythm and upbeat, whimsical harmonies and a woozy melody. Strumming acoustic guitars, lush percussion and jubilant strings make for an irresistible indie-pop song that can call to mind a touch of Paul Simon and a dash of Portland’s Typhoon. It’s an eclectic EP with quirky, wandering melodies and adventurous, clever song-writing that simultaneously covers a lot of ground without ever straying far from their core sound thanks to dual vocalists and thoughtful instrumentation. A few other standouts include the track “When They Bleed” and “Drowning (In Myself).” Much thanks to the fine folks at Paper Garden Records for forwarding this to my attention!
