Human Behavior is the alt-folk band from Tuscon in the USA comprising Andres, Ron, Logan, Jessa, Emily, Morgan and Jordan.
There is something of great interest in a band who take what is typically a generally a genre of sagacity and turn it into a whimsical storyline of the dark and twisted and for this I just have to recommend spending some time with Human Behavior.
One is called to mind the difference between an American produced film which invariably ends with it all working out in the end and a British production that normally ends with the chaos and comeuppance the storyline would indicate. Given that the band resides in the State of the saccharine, this only adds more poignancy to the material.
Despite the number of players, Human Behavior produce a sound that is calmly reflective and not complicated by instrumentation. A couple of years behind them now they has established something of a cult reputation and this is a cult I would recommend joining if you like the darker spectrum. Having spent the past few hours listening to bands of a more ‘as to be anticipated’ sound they come as a delightful contrast.
Taken from their latest LP – the 13 track Golgotha – Vintage Dad is a great place to get a feel for Human Behavior.
