It's Time to Free the Bees

A Band of Bees wants you to Free the Bees.

On their second full-length album, the Isle of Wight duo returns, not only to the fold but also to some classic rock roots. I don’t really remember liking the Bees music in the past, but the first time I put on Free the Bees, something was different. I was immediately drawn in to their retro sound, combining some elements of ‘70s arena rock but heavily falling back toward the sound of the original British invasion of the ‘60s. Band of Bees takes its cue from groups like the Zombies and the Turtles, developing a neo-psychedelic sound that hasn’t been heard in a long time.
