"This California five-piece spent two years on We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes, and it certainly sounds like it; music this intricate and delicate is not made in a hurry. Comparisons to the atmospherics of Sigur Rós are natural—especially after hearing “Drifters”-but thankfully lead singer Larry Fernandez doesn’t spend his time imitating Jonsi, even though, of course, he has a beautiful voice that’s quite capable of lulling the listener into a heavenly state. " Big Takeover
The Dandelion War is an American Post-Rock band from Oakland, California.
They combine elements of post-rock, shoegaze, dreampop and ambient to outstanding effect. The band's ethereal and haunting sound relies on the stark contrasts between quiet minimalism and colossal crescendos. AbsolutePunk described the band as "sounding like what would happen if someone melted Explosions In The Sky, Radiohead and The Antlers’ Hospice together." They have also been compared to Sigur Ros and My Morning Jacket.
The band reached critical acclaim with the release of We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes in 2012. The album was listed as one of the year's top release by The Alternative Tone (#13),Team Reasonable (#10), and PopBlerd (#10) Their debut album Geometries and Orchids was released independently in 2010.
