Dignan’s been compared to big names such as Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, Cursive, and Manchester Orchestra, and the unsigned McAllen, Texas band is definitely one to watch.
The band self-released its debut full-length, Cheaters and Thieves, last year, and it spent the better part of 2009 relentlessly touring in support of the album. Dignan’s also releasd two previous EPs: Tangled Woods and The Guest.
Check out “Two Steps” from Cheaters. It features haunting harmonies in the minor key, backed by a marching drumbeat.
