The Vanilla Beans

A band comprised of four close friends. Songs reside within a pop universe. Rock'n electro folky tunes. Nothing too incredible just fun fun fun hopefully.
Songs inspired intially after a heap of listening to the music of Daniel Johnston. Music intended to be silly/fun/weird. Started as a single person side project. Songs evolved to a more serious sound complimented by acoustic drum loops and less falsetto. The Band utilizes backing tracks for bass, drums, and some synth parts.
