Splitting their time between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Branches have described their collaborative process as ‘a lot like long-distance dating’. Best-friends turned band-mates, the lady and gentlemen of Branches are making music that they believe in.

Through both sing-along celebration and solitary longing, Branches offer their own brand of harmony-driven indie-rock, with elements of folk-instrumentation and pop-inspiration.
Their new LP, White Flag, utilizes every instrument in Branches’ arsenal – electric guitar and banjo, harmonium and synthesizer, tambourine and roto tom – exploring the two-sided coin of surrender; considering the right and wrong times to throw in the towel.
Finding a groove carved by gospel and hymnal roots, Cousins focuses on group vocals combined with folk rock waves. The rawness in their sound is a testament of their humble and honest attitudes towards life. Nothing gimmicky here, just 6 friends close enough to call each other family.
Sedgewick solidified their presence in the Chicago folk scene in April 2015 with the release of their debut EP, "Gardens." Before their release, their music had already received accolades from New City magazine and Gapers Block, calling it "gorgeous" and "cinematic," evoking "Sufjan Stevens and a pre-therapy Peter Gabriel."
