Yellow Ostrich with Pattern is Movement

Yellow Ostrich began as Alex Schaaf’s passion project. While studying music at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wis., the 21-year-old recorded lo-fi, 4-track songs from his bedroom and released them on Bandcamp. After opening for Bishop Allen, Schaaf befriended that band’s drummer, Michael Tapper. In 2010, Schaaf moved to Brooklyn and joined forces with Tapper; the duo released “The Mistress” in 2011. Jon Natchez (bass) came on board in time for 2012’s “Strange Land” but left the band shortly thereafter. Jared Van Fleet (keyboard/guitar) and Zach Rose (base) were then added to the lineup and the foursome recorded “Cosmos” (2014), an album where melodic, hymnal vocals coalesce with guitar-driven, indie rock instrumentation. Pattern is Movement opens. Erica Rivera
