Made up of Solon Bixler (30 Seconds to Mars) and Rachel Stolte, Great Northern is an indie rock band with an underlying pop feel similar to that of The Faunts. The melodic, breathy male and female vocals on top of the ethereal use of keyboard will pull you in, as their mesmerizing lyrics will have you reaching for the repeat button. Their second album “Remind Me Where the Light Is”, which came out in April 2009, will drag you on a journey through the dark side to reach the “light”. Though it seems this duo may have their act together and down pat, they are constantly surprising their fans with new direction and great harmonization. Check out these great tracks from their latest album: Houses, Story, Mountain, and Warning.
