Singer-songwriter Kevin Peroni began composing heartfelt indie melodies reminiscent of The Shins meets early Posies under the band’s moniker in 2005. Since then, Peroni has inducted three additional members to help Wiretree excel in lacing tracks with infectious hooks and choruses reminding us of an orchestrated Tom Petty-esque pomp and circumstance. The collective’s latest LP, Luck, has been included on various year-end lists and incorporates a variety of classic influences to produce an endearing yet simplistic indie pop masterpiece. Powerpop Station describes Luck as “a collection of pop gems of rare beauty, a panel revealing an inspired artist, a pill filled with good feelings” while Blurt Magazine praises its “underground-tinted ’80s stylings and latterday indie rock with a distinctive anthemic edge.” With the assured grace of Elliott Smith-like vocals and Peroni’s acoustic innocence, the album assures to provoke a bright and enjoyable musical experience.
