Video Feature: Discovering the Edgier Side of Ukulele
Eight talented musicians take the ukulele to sonic places it's never been before!
I’ve been a fan of Beirut for a long time now, so I had to include “Postcards From Italy,” written by frontman and ukulele player Zach Condon. The ukulele part itself is fairly simple, but there is a heaviness to it that drew me in. Combined with a full band arrangement in the style of Sufjan Stevens (including a trumpet) it sounds like pure nostalgia to me.
