Formed in 2005, Portland, Oregon collective Typhoon crafts ornate, big-hearted indie rock anthems in the vein of Frightened Rabbit, Beirut, Arcade Fire, and Bright Eyes. Favoring complex, sometimes fragmented arrangements peppered with orchestral flourishes, the band, led by chief singer and songwriter Kyle Morton, released their eponymous debut in 2005, followed by the Dearborn Sessions EP in 2007, and Hunger and Thirst in 2010. In 2011 the band appeared on the David Letterman Show in support of their New Kind of House EP and the compilation album From Boy Gorilla and Beyond, and in 2013 the band released their most ambitious collection to date, the Roll Call-issued White Lighter. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
