Future Folk? This New Zealand Band Wows Us All the Way from Wellington

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWmSL0YjvsE&feature=youtu.be&hd=1]

Inky cityscapes, 60s-inspired fashion, and a sound that’s as sweet as it is unique, New Zealand band Urbantramper has us pretty much obsessed. The band describes its genre as ‘future folk’ — an interesting interpretation of their ethereally indie aesthetic.

Those hip headphones featured in the vid look familiar, too, huh? Plus, who can resist a shout out to Kate Bush? Not us.

Happy listening, lovelies!
