The Trews just released their highly-anticipated album Civilianaires. The band is known for their fresh rock sound. We chatted with them about what inspired the new project. How did you all meet? Well, the singer Colin is my older brother so I guess I met him the day I was born and I have no memory of meeting Jack either cause …
I first met Brooklyn based indie-pop band, Plastic Picnic at a dive bar on the Tuesday of SXSW this past March. I didn’t even mean to go to that showcase, but I was hooked the second they played a Police cover, and lead singer, Emile Panerio, left the stage to give the audience fist bumps. They had a contagious sort of joy that was hard not to give into, and my friends and I found ourselves dancing along to songs we had never heard before, but somehow felt we already knew. By the end of the week, I had seen Plastic Picnic four times and still wasn’t sick of them.
After the recent release of Screws and embarking on a headlining tour across the U.S., Dreamers is poised to make waves this year. The rock/alternative band, made up of lead singer Nick Wold, drummer Jacob Wick and bassist Marc Nelson, released their first single in 2014 and an album in 2016, even hitting the festival circuit in recent years to further elevate them with fans and new audiences alike. In advance of their tour, we chatted with Dreamers about how they’ve progressed over the years, their upcoming plans for new music and what to get excited about from their live show.
Aidan Carroll’s voice is dreamy and so sultry. He’s sure to be someone to add to your radar. He’s releasing his album this Friday, but we wanted to speak with him before just to give you all a taste of what to expect.
Following the release of their debut EP “New” and last year’s “I.L.Y”, Indianapolis indie-alt outfit, The Wldlfe, are back with their debut full-length album “I’m Not Worried Anymore”. While not a new name to The New Nine, The Wldlfe are set to take things to the next level this fall.
We’re all about femme-powered country music here. Abby Anderson is well on her way to taking over and it warms my heart to see more Texas girls out there making waves. She just released her new EP ‘I’m Good’ and we’re already in love.
You don’t really think of Reddit as a place where pop stars are found, but that’s exactly where singer and songwriter Sasha Sloan was discovered. “My parents were painting the outside of our house and when they got to my window they wrote ‘dork’ in massive letters pointing to it, so I posted it online and it made it to the first page of Reddit. So then I posted my SoundCloud link in the comments and a couple weeks later I was signed as a writer,” explained Sloan.
Ivy Rei is the Norwegian pop star you need to know about now. Her song “Say It to My Face” the song starts out soft and acoustic and builds to a powerful chorus that highlights her effortless voice. We talked to her about what has been inspiring her lately and her amazing new music.
It seems rare these days to see a band that doesn’t have some sort of synthesizer on stage with them. The evolution of electronic music has bled seamlessly into pop, rock, rap, and indie music making it possible to replicate a variety of preconstructed beats and sounds. But California rock group, The Jacks, have made a conscious decision to stick with a more straightforward approach; “Our goal is to never have a computer on stage,” said bassist, Scott Stone, quickly adding, “Not that there’s anything wrong with bands who do that, we just really want to just keep it to four guys and four instruments.”
I was instantly hooked on Zyles after listening to his song “Sundresses” the song is shimmering pop at its finest and is perfect for those late summer hangs. We chatted with Zyles about his latest inspirations.
