Athens native Thayer Sarrano and band celebrate the 10th anniversary of album “Lift Your Eyes to the Hills,” as well as the release of newest Lp “Bells” (out later this year),  in a multimedia show with special guests CalvertFountain!

“The songs on Wings Alleluia are emotional experiences that Sarrano selflessly shares, not swampy nests of distortion or disposable pop songs. The religious talking points made apparent by these song titles don’t make it a gospel or New Age album – although Sarrano and friends would excel at reshaping either genre. Instead, they’re testaments to the spiritual power of a good song. In short, Sarrano made another album that’s unquestionably from Athens and not exclusively beholden to any specific strand of indie rock or to a single belief system. Press likened the album to “the twang of Cowboy Junkies/Margo Timmins, the look-to-the-sky dreaminess of Harriet Wheeler/The Sundays, the obtuse pop hooks of Polly Jean Harvey, the feedback of Jesus + Mary Chain, the production values of Beach House and the modern hooks of Nicole Dollanganger.” High and descriptive praise, yet even all of that might be limiting when it comes to defining the latest creative vision from one of the Classic City’s most imaginative musical exports.” -Stomp and Stammer

“A Southern-psych dreamland, bottling up ghosts and bringing them to life through her ethereal hymns." - Huffington Post

 

"Sarrano can morph from angel to devil in the same song. The looming atmosphere of dread and submission conjured turns over a new page in Southern Gothic storytelling" —Pop Matters

 

"Like shoegazing with a twang, but there’s a maximalist epic thing going on, too. It’s rare that a singer is able to balance synthesizers with a slow, Southern vocal palette, and it’s almost like inventing a new language of song. Well, here it is, and it’s gorgeous!” - FlyPaper
