LA 12-piece band playing psych-hearted sunshine-pop, led by former Ima Robot front man Alex Ebert. So who then is Edward Sharpe? Ebert began to write a book about a messianic figure named Edward Sharpe that was "sent down to Earth to kinda heal and save mankind, but he kept getting distracted by girls and falling in love." Ebert then adopted the Sharpe persona as his alter ego.
Comparisons with The Polyphonic Spree are unsurprising, though The Magnetic Zeros favour a more rootsy, folky and country bent to their material. Stand-out track, the joyous 'Home', has been heard by everyone, even if you didn't know who it was by, from regular use in TV commercials and trailers.
