Magpies

When: Thu., Oct. 23, 9:30 p.m. 2014

A fuzzed-out piece of Missoula comes to Spokane next Thursday by way of indie rockers Magpies. The quartet just released their new album Tornado in their hometown and are now on a Northwest mini-tour promoting the 10-track disc. Their music features heavily distorted guitar work and pounding drums paired with bright melodies from lead vocalists Tolan Harber and Samantha Pollington, the married couple who started the group as a two-piece in 2007. Despite all of the big crashes and waves of sound weaving throughout, Magpies’ songs almost have a quietness to them.
