Album artwork for Write it in the Sky by The Umbrellas

The Umbrellas are one of the most exciting bands to come from the indie pop underground in ages. Bursting out of the SF Bay Area's fertile indie scene, The Umbrellas come correct with a sound that fits snugly into a long line of classic pop, from The Byrds to Orange Juice, The Pastels, Comet Gain, Veronica Falls and Belle and Sebastian, along with a noticeable garage-pop / Paisley Underground flavor that is a hallmark of San Francisco's best bands.

Now The Umbrellas are back with "Write It In The Sky," an instant-classic that simply demanded to be pressed onto a 7" single. Clocking in at just under 3 minutes, "Write It In The Sky" is a thrilling pop rush full of fuzz, melody and excitement that will sit easily next to singles by the likes of Talulah Gosh, Shop Assistants, The Pastels and The Pains of Being Pure At Heart. It's really that good - a sure thing to enter the canon of perennial indiepop floor-fillers. On the b-side we have the heavier "I'll Never Understand," a slow, trippy song with a slightly-delic sound that builds to a noisy crescendo. The band really crushes this one on stage, and it's fast becoming a live favorite. Taken together they point to a mighty bright future for The Umbrellas, and we can't wait to hear what's next!
