The Good Minus are an all-singing, instrument-swapping power trio. Their songs feature intricate three-part vocal harmonies with a style described as Grizzly Bear reimagining the songs of Elbow.
Matt Welch, David Kean and Stu Hazelman blend wildly different influences to create multi-layered arrangements, with obscure yet groove-laden time signatures.
Their debut album was released in October 2019.
“Rich with vocal harmonies and multi-layered arrangements, the release breathes new life into angular prog pop.”
“(The Good Minus) have succeeded in creating a perfect indie song.?
– We Love That Sound
?A gorgeous piece with faultless production and a great sonic mix of musicians? a stunning piece of work.?
“Lush harmonies?. Johnny Greenwood/Radiohead-esque lead guitar parts.?
– Divide and Conquer Music
?Post-rock or math rock?. you’ll gather within a few seconds that these are intricate arrangements that suggest a cerebral mind behind them? folky voices emerged and did nothing to knock the gracious momentum off its stride. A strong live presence going by this showing, a real band in the throes of creation.?
