Biography

Curtains For You is a five-piece indie-pop band from Seattle, Washington. The band consists of Matthew Gervais (lead vocal/guitar,) Mike Gervais (lead guitar/saxophone/vocals,) Nick Holman (bass/euphonium/vocal,) Peter Fedofsky (Piano/vocals,) and Dave Lawrence (drums.) They are heavily influenced by ’60s pop, in particular, parallels can be drawn to the music of The Beatles and The Kinks. Comparisons to Harry Nilsson have been made, and the band has made no secret their love of his music and vocal style. They are mainstays of the nascent Seattle retro-pop scene, and play regularly on bills with other similar artists of the Seattle retro-pop scene, such as Andy Werth.

Critically, the band is described by the Seattle Power Pop Blog as “…a really solid outfit that use interesting sounds and rely on a constant shuffle beat to churn out mid-tempo tunes that sound a little bit like Jellyfish if they had listened to a lot of Stephen Foster and New Orleans dirges.” Megan Seling of Seattle’s The Stranger has this to say of the band, “Given that the whole ’70s-pop/vaudevillian/Harry Nilsson thing is big right now (right?), it’s a good time to get turned on to Curtains For You, a local pop band claiming to find inspiration in Harry Nilsson, Rufus Wainwright, and The Beach Boys. It’s a pretty grown-up version of some of the stuff that’s big with the kids right now (e.g., Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground), but it’s got a catchy, wistful attitude with piano-bar playfulness and croons about being fucked up.
