Love this acoustic version of Cocoon:
This isn't the best shot video, but I really like this song and I love the energy:
Physical Reaction/Live Show I've never seen them live, but they are pretty high on my list for Bonnaroo. They seem like they have a great live sound and a lot of energy, I'd love to be right up front for their set.
Interesting Facts The band name came from a street performer Van saw when he was on vacation with his family in Australia as a kid, he thought it would be a cool band name!
Personal Notes The Balcony is one of the only albums that I've listened through in the last year and really enjoyed the whole thing.
