The Inner Banks
Brooklyn band THE INNER BANKS is the musical alter ego of married couple Caroline Schutz and David Gould and their revolving cast of talented friends. Since forming in 2006, THE INNER BANKS has eluded easy categorization, and in its latest release Wild, the band shows no sign of bucking that trend. The ensemble’s rich, cinematic orchestration skews the traditional country twang of instruments like the lap steel by integrating string sections, wurlitzer and layered female vocals. THE INNER BANKS draws inspiration from a wide variety of traditions—British folk,‘60s pop, shoegaze, film music and Americana among them—but ultimately emerges with a sound that is grander and more unique than the sum of its parts.
