Sentinel “For Days Deep”

This band is from Oakland. How is it that I’d never heard of them? Clearly this is an oversight on my part. In short, this act follows the footsteps of other local greats Minipop and Julie Plug. It’s female-fronted indie-pop all the way on “Kinda Light Up.” This instantly is my new favorite record.
“Locator” located my heart and seized it. But the best track on here is “Whaley.” The backing vocals do what parsley never could: make an entree taste better. Oh yes.
When you name the last track “Sunset,” it makes you wonder whether “Kinda Light Up” is a reference to the morning overcast Oakland often gets. I should ask them. At any rate, a good record. Let’s hear more.
