Bodies of Water is an American band from Highland Park, a neighborhood of north east Los Angeles. The core members are married couple David and Meredith Metcalf. When recording or performing live they play as a duo or with as many as
10 musicians. All members of the band sing, including players added for local shows.
Bodies of Water’s first EP and album was reviewed favorably by music critics such as Pitchfork Media and Rolling Stone magazine’s New Music blog. Critics often compare their music to that of Ennio Morricone, Arcade Fire and The Mamas & the Papas. In interviews, the band lists gospel groups and Tropicalia musicians among its influences.
Open Rhythms is taken from their 3rd album, Twist Again, released in June.
