Wardell – “Opossum”

wardell Wardell   Opossum

I don’t know anything about this band. They are from Los Angeles, according to their Soundcloud. They were recommended to me by @JennsDrunk, who is almost always right about these things. We’ve gotten so accustomed to hearing new bands that come prepackaged with a story and an image that sometimes it’s kind of nice to jump into a year-old song with no background information. So here’s “Opossum,” a beautiful track from Wardell. There’s no other music on their Soundcloud. This one is a builder, and there’s a second breaking point at around 2:30, so don’t get all ADD and dip out before then.

If you like the idea of jumping into something new without any background, stop reading here. In the process of writing this post I naturally did some digging. In case you are obsessed with information, here’s the “about” section from their Facebook:

Wardell (formerly Brother/Sister) is a band that consists of one brother and one sister who met during a play date set up by their parents. One’s black and one’s white. They remain brother and sister.

Also, lead singer Sasha Spielberg is an actress. Also, she’s the daughter of Steven Spielberg.

You can buy the song here.

    Hahah i know. Honestly I was going to leave that info out. I didn’t even know that when I started writing the post but it’s just become habit to dig up as much as I can find about an artist while I post about them.

    Hey Confusion, I love this track. It was actually released last December under the band name Brother/Sister. They’re actually both children of Steven Spielberg. http://popstache.com/free-mp3-download/brothersister-opossum/

    You two dynamos have hit the mark. The tune is wormed inside my head–you’re in full bloom. I’m remembering old times and smiling. More!

    Listened to Opossum and found nothing catchy there other than a couple of sweet, young voices. IMHO the only thing they’ve got going for them is they are related to Steven Speilberg, otherwise I wouldn’t give them a second thought.
