Married with music

Despite having day jobs and nightly marital duties, OKC/D.C. duo Husbands overcome odds to craft blissful bedroom pop.


Music

Zach Hale

If it wasn’t for their name, you’d never know Husbands have wives and 9-to-5s. Peruse through the many singles on their Bandcamp website and the youthful exuberance with which their music brims becomes clear: Sunlit melody is often obscured by ominous cloud cover, only to burst through in a densely layered amalgam of reverb-laced guitar and soaring harmonies dubbed to the max.
