The Bubbles are an Austin quartet who just released their second album, Daydreaming in Technicolor. The band's debut put them on the local map, with positive reviews from the likes of Austin Sound and the Austinist, and a ‘Band to Watch’ recommendation from the Austin Chronicle. Word has it they will record a Daytrotter session soon.
The Bubbles specialize in lo-fi, sunshine pop filled with colorful arrangements and melodic hooks. They are something like a cuddly, power-pop version of The Flaming Lips, with a definite nod to the psych-pop sounds of the Elephant 6 collective. Check out Powerpopaholic for a thoughtful review of their latest effort. Locals can catch The Bubbles at Beauty Bar next month for 101X's Homegrown Live.
