Discovery: The Herbert Bail Orchestra

The Herbert Bail Orchestra are an indie-folk group from Los Angeles, with the emphasis being firmly on the folk aspect of their sound on new track Hold Your Own.

By Jane Howkins

We’re somewhat reminded of Mumford & Sons here, both in terms of the vocals and music (there’s a certain chord progression that is oddly reminiscent), but that’s not a bad thing, as since that band’s hiatus a gap has opened in the market for a similar act. We also get the feeling that The Herbert Bail Orchestra are a little more sincere, and that shines through in droves on this track.

If you’re into folk of any kind you should enjoy this – take a listen below!
