The Kingsbury Manx are an American indie rock group from Chapel Hill, NC. They made a splash with their seemingly out-of-nowhere eponymous debut in 2000. The original members of The Kingsbury Manx met in middle school, but attended different colleges. They reunited during the summer months to play and record together. One of their demos caught the ear of Chicago-based label Overcoat Recordings, who issued their debut self-titled album in 2000.
