Lawrence's Another Holiday fired up in the summer of 2005 and found their footing with the addition of singer and pianist Katlyn Conroy, who possesses a strong and unique voice that's nonetheless doomed to draw comparisons to Rilo Kiley, Metric, Eisley, Azure Ray et al. The group's songwriting favors balladry over overt rocking, with songs ebbing and flowing and occasionally soaring into Coldplay territory. That's not a bad thing in the hands of capable musicians, all of whom virtuously support Conroy's fast-developing songcraft.Openers Cecada are gonna blow the roof off the Tulsa, OK, scene, or maybe not, but they're a pretty rad indie rock band regardless. Citing influences like Explosions in the Sky, Jason Molina and My Morning Jacket, the quartet strikes a pensive tone on its debut EP "In Sunshine and In Shadow."
