This photo really captures the surprise and nonchalance of Zach Condon's sudden indie domination.
After his bedroom recordings made him famous, Condon quickly pulled together a reputedly great stage performance with his eight-piece band, proving himself to be not just an interesting song leader but an engaging performer.
Condon has been described as "cherubic" and "baby-faced," among other descriptors. Here you have it.
The 8-piece lineup solidified for the album The Flying Club Cup and has been playing together since.
Apparently he started playing ukulele as something of a joke, but found it was a great instrument for songwriting and far more adaptable than he'd expected.
