Arden Concert Gild presents one of my most intriguing and unique Brooklyn-based indie rock bands today, San Fermin, with opener White Hinterland on Saturday, January 31 at 8:30 pm. Get your tickets here. Enamored by the lush gorgeous arrangements of the debut album, a full production comes from a band pushing the limits of indie rock with an large orchestral-like sound composed by keyboardist and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone.
This tour comes in anticipation of the release of their sophomore album, Jackrabbit, which is scheduled to drop in April 2015 (according to the band’s website) and features quite the line-up as well with the new female vocalist, Charlene Kaye. Additionally, the 8 member core band will augment their presence on stage with 5 extra members on stage hired locally for the Arden Concert. This will make for a really powerful and dynamic chamber pop-like sound.
San Fermin has 2 songs from the new album which have been released: “Parasites” and most recently “Jackrabbit” which can be found here:

Last year, they played Philly at Union Transfer on October 20, 2014 brilliantly as the co-bill with Courtney Barnett, and photos are by Joe del Tufo:
