Hey Marseilles – Lines We Trace

  • April 3, 2013

Seattle’s Hey Marseilles return with their second album, “Lines We Trace” – an elegant set of chamber folk-pop. Guitars, drums, cello, piano, trumpet, accordion and more combine beautifully with Matt Bishop’s tenor vocals, breezy harmonies, and touching melodies. The songs on Lines We Trace are smart and heartfelt; and a few notable tracks are: the swirling opening track, “Tides”; the emotional and stormy “Heart Beats”; the waltz-like “Elegy”; and “Cafe Lights” which is reminiscent of 60’s era Paul Simon. Fans of Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists, and The Lumineers will likely appreciate the warmth and emotion achieved on this finely crafted album. – Written by JFelton
