About The Polyphonic Spree

When the Polyphonic Spree first appeared in 2000, the Dallas symphonic pop group was as much a band as a "happening," in the 1960s sense of the word. The Spree's two-dozen members, led by Tim DeLaughter, took the stage in flowing robes of snowy white, an appropriate backdrop for their happy and uplifting blend of pop, orchestral rock, and minimal touches of gospel. They found chart success with Together We're Heavy (2004) and The Fragile Army (2007), and after a six-year hiatus, issued a covers EP, We Hope It Finds You Well, in 2020. The costumes changed over the years, but the Polyphonic Spree's message remained consistent, drawing comparisons to the Flaming Lips and the Beach Boys with a smidgen of lively Godspell-like attitude thrown into the mix. ~ Andrew Leahey
