Artist Profile: Los Campesinos!

by amandajohogan913

This another example of a band who has been around for a while, but has managed to stay under the mainstream radar, meaning you won’t hear them on the radio like Foster the People.

Los Campesinos! bears a lot of resemblance to Arcade Fire, both in structure and the carefree music they produce. They are a seven piece band from Wales formed in early 2006, and their fourth full length album Hello Sadness came out earlier this month.

Everything they do is energetic and well-received live, like my favorite “You! Me! Dancing!”

This song, “By Your Hand”‘ is from their just released album, and is getting a lot of buzz.
