This Thursday, March 25th Oakville/New Haven’s Singing Bridges will be performing at Cafe Nine alongside Berlin, CT’s Elison Jackson and the Bohemians. Now a trio, Singing Bridges is currently performing shows in support of their new 5 song EP ‘Three Trains.’ The EP was released this past November on the Oakville, CT.-based Skipping Stones Records, which just happens to be run by Singing Bridges’ husband & wife rhythm section William Knapp and Christine Jewell. Their current musical direction can be best-likened to late 80’s/early ’90s jangle-pop a la 4AD Records. The band’s melodies are kept simple but arranged in a manner that retains their freshness upon repeated listens. Jewell’s vocals in particular add an element of innocence to the songs that only further enhance their catchiness. Joining Singing Bridges will be indie-folksters Elison Jackson & The Bohemians. Although firmly based in country and folk, Elison Jackson shares Singing Bridges adeptness at creating memorable songs from seemingly simple melodies (with special attention paid towards the vocals as well). The quartet is currently readying their first record to be released this Spring. You can check out a sampling of tracks on the band’s Myspace page. If you’re fan of simple yet effective melodic pop and folk, this show is for you.
