I don't know if this group has ever been discussed here, but I thought I'd write about them because the Brian Wilson influence is super strong and I think people here would really enjoy it.

I had the pleasure of seeing them open for Mark Mulcahy (of Miracle Legion and Adventures of Pete and Pete's Polaris) in Philadelphia last month. They posted to the shows event page a link to the song Lauren Lorraine (https://vimeo.com/209003794) and I immediately could pick up a Beach Boys/Brian influence. I purchased their album, Himalaya, and the influence is all over the place. Give the track Himalaya a listen and the influence is very clear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6ThVlZ0ahg. It's a very Smile-like instrumental with some harmonic "oooh's" over it. The piano on the track at about 0:45 even sounds like a slowed down version of the Piano Demo H&V from Endless Harmony/Smile box set.

Definitely one of the best openers I have seen at any show, and I highly recommend you all give them a listen. I really enjoy the album I purchased (Himalaya) and their self titled album is good as well. They're available on Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube, etc.
