Founded by Eric D. Johnson, a former member of indie giants The Shins and part of the supergroup Bonny Light Horseman, Fruit Bats have undergone various lineup changes over the years. Despite these shifts, the band’s core has remained centered around Johnson. Influenced by the likes of Supertramp, The Byrds, The Kinks, and late ’70s to early ’80s pop radio, their music is a delightful blend of indie folk with a nostalgic touch.

For a taste of their sound, check out tracks like ”The Bottom of It,” “Humbug Mountain Song,” and “The Ruminant Band.” Fruit Bats’ most recent album, A River Running to Your Heart, released in 2023, has been praised by as “a low-key beauty of a record, a small and lovely triumph for a too often despondent and agitated world.”

Don’t miss the chance to witness this indie gem live at The Wilma!
