UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS With a considered mix of thoughtful lyrics, folk-tinged melodies and a bit of feedback, the results fallsomewhere on the spectrum between indie folk rock and shoegaze with a stop somewhere along the way for pop. ORIGAMI GHOSTS The group’s light, playful, and thoughtful sound draws from folk, pop, and rock, among other inspirations.
