Molly Shea and Jason Klauber are Brooklyn’s Acrylics. The duo have roots in Philly and met at Oberlin College where they began making music together. After they graduated they moved to Brooklyn, formed a band with a drummer who would go on to play with MGMT and Shea and Klauber decided to go on as a duo. Their first EP, entitled “All of the Fire”, was released on Terrible Records (Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear’s label) in late 2009 and they’re releasing their debut full length on March 1st. Lives And Treasure is coming out on Hot Sand Records and Friendly Fire Recordings. Acylics’ chamber-dream-pop shimmers with high melody that recalls bands like The Dream Academy and the New Zealand indie-pop of The Chills.
