The Sharp Things are a multi-instrumental, orchestral pop group from NYC.
The band, likely more appropriately termed a "collective," has released 3 critically acclaimed albums on various labels in the states and abroad and has toured this circus from coast to coast.
The group is currently working on the follow up to their last record, A Moveable Feast, of which kind folks like SPIN.COM said, "Hope is on the horizon thanks to pop visionaries the Sharp Things," and MAGNET followed, "Don't let all the trumpets, oboes and cellos make you nervous. Underneath the big-league arrangements are a set of muscular tunes that would still sound good played by a standard rock combo."
The new effort is being pieced together, SLOWLY, but steadily, at The Kennel Studio in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It may actually boast upwards of 30 songs when it's all said and done, and it will find the band stretching its creative muscles over the side of the pool, with full-on rawk songs, plaintive heart-wrenchers and its signature lush stuff — strings, horns, da works! All over the place, yes, but in an inexplicably focused way. Think the White Album (could they be that bold?).
