Family Band
Playing on Wednesday at Union Pool
(484 Union Ave., Williamsburg)
Get: Tickets ($8) | Directions 

The Family Band is actually a family. Visual artist-turned-singer Kim Krans and her spouse Jonny Ollsin, an ex-heavy metal guitarist, formed the band some two years ago. The pair, and multi-instrumentalist bandmate Scott Hirsch, create noir-ish ambient rock that they call “heavy mellow.”

Last week, The Family Band released its sophomore LP, Grace & Lies. Check out two songs from the quietly-expansive work: download the tune “Moonbeams” and watch the music video for “Night Song.”
