The Music

Yellow Ostrich are an American indie rock band based out of Brooklyn, New York. Thanks to a good friend this is a recent discovery for me and I’ve been enjoying the dig through a solid repertoire. The band was formed in 2009 and has since released 5 albums and several EPs. Their latest album ‘Cosmos’ is worth picking up and finds the band delivering beautiful pop with enough space to appreciate it. Here’s the standout track “My Moons” from their latest LP ‘Cosmos’ out on one of my favorite labels Barsuk Records. -Cedar & Soil Yellow Ostrich: Facebook | Twitter | Website
