Banfi is comprised of Joe Banfi, Aaron Graham, and Chris McCuaig. Their catchy hooks are the perfect alt-pop soundtrack. They’ve traveled throughout the U.K., but it’s seriously only a matter before they make their way across the pond. I spoke to Aaron about the inspiration behind the band, their music and their bigger plans for 2018.
Fever High is the Brooklyn based synth pop band you need to listen to. Reni Lane and Anna Nordeen describe their sound as “rebellion/girl-on-girl/rock and pop-new wave”, a hefty description that fits the bill.
Charming Liars are known for their theatrical music that’s just slightly tinged with a certain poetic darkness. Their latest single “Insomnia” is the perfect precursor for their next album. Kiliyan Macquire, singer, and songwriter told me that there’s a recurring theme for this next album.
Craig Stickland has worked hard for his music career, his work ethic is one of the most impressive things about him. His song “Warning” is so relatable and it’s obvious how talented he is when you watch him perform.
I am a product of the Warped Tour scene. Most of my teenage years were full of rock, pop punk, punk rock, the whole gamut. At this phase in life, I am enjoying 10-year reunion shows, some bands getting back together, but one aspect I love is seeing new bands come forward.
I don’t think there’s a lot of people in the music world as smart as Luna Shadows. Her latest EP Youth has been circulating on every blog and playlist. She’s in complete control of her music and her career and she’s fiercely business-minded. That’s not to take away from her music, her songs are haunting and intricate, she has a distinctive sound.
Josephina’s song “Woosah” is so dreamy and it just makes you feel happy. Her new video really captures that feeling of intimacy and feeling good about yourself. We talked to her about the making of the video and the way she wants her music to make you feel.
Cody Fry has had a pretty unconventional career. He started singing in radio and TV commercials when he was a kid. “McDonald’s Happy Meals, stuff like that,” he says. “My father is a composer and arranger, so I always grew up surrounded by music.”
It’s hard not to be immediately captivated by Alli Fitz, her song Disease is insanely catchy, like I’ve had it stuck in my head all day. And Alli herself just has this quality in her voice, like she’s your best friend already.
This past June, at an excessively late hour, I came across a song I had to have on my personal weekly playlist. “Talking Dirty” from LA-based band, WALLA, stuck out as a track I wanted to share. The Body Language EP released this summer and WALLA are back with a new video and single for “Into the Gray”. We catch up with Jean Marc Tardieu (Lead Vocals) and introduce you to the soulful pop act that is WALLA.
