Mouthful Of Bees

Biography

Minneapolis natives Mouthful of Bees formed in 2004 as just a brother-sister guitar-and-drummer duo (Chris and Kate), but eventually evolved into the full-sized band with the addition of Micky Alfano and Mark Ritsema (of Battle Royale).

In short, Mouthful of Bees play a composite of old-fashioned rock 'n roll and newly fangled indie-rock. Doused with reverb and healthily distorted guitars, the band is fronted with a solid background in riff-rock and what the record lacks in fidelity is made up by the band's youthful optimism and innovative songwriting.

With a voice reminiscent of the likes of Figure 8-era Elliot Smith and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Chris Farstad's angelic voice is eerily contagious and compelling. Set apart from other songwriters by his unique voice and intelligent approach to songwriting, Farstad is the best frontman out of Minneapolis you nearly never heard of.
