More Than Sound

More Than Sound

Honest, genuine and fun sums up suburban Philadelphia-based indie infused pop rock outfit More Than Sound. It originally began as a solo project for Jon Eirich (vocals/acoustic guitar) in February 2015. Eirich has always enjoyed writing solo, but he also always had a band in mind if it ever came to it. Eirich asked Eric Povish (drums) to join in the recording process with him. […]

Time Atlas

Time Atlas

There’s no map to follow, but we’re in charge of the directions we take. We’ve only got so much time to walk on those paths before we’re not around to walk them anymore, because life is short; we have to make the best of the time while we have it – this is the mindset of Minneapolis quintet, Time Atlas. Featuring Grayson DeWolfe (vocals/keys), Josh […]

SLOES

SLOES

Having always considered themselves indie, SLOES’ management prefers orchestral pop; which draws one’s attention to certain elements of their sound. The London quintet started off wanting to sound like Arcade Fire or Foals, without being too specific. As they have progressed in their musical journey however, they now just sound like SLOES. The London quintet had their roots with Jerome (vocals/song writing) and Jo (bass/guitar), […]

Filmspeed

Filmspeed

Two parts Motown, one part South American, all parts moving – that is in essence the alternative rock, indie, blues and grunge trio, Filmspeed. The band actually began under a different name back in 2004, with Nick Stout (bass) and Craig Broombaugh (vocals) growing up in the same neighbourhood on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan. A few years into college, Broombaugh started a new band […]

Diagonal People

Diagonal People

A band self-described a skunk covered in Coco Pops being dragged through a pile of broken glass and honey-scented roses is the indie post-genre pop Swindon-based Diagonal People, who have stumbled and in part devised a sound that combines the music of the heart and brain with the music of bones and the bottom. The entity of Diagonal People has actually been in existence in […]

The Wisher & The Well

The Wisher & The Well

A fusion of post-hardcore instrumental construction, with strong and powerful rhythm, combined with modern style vocal melodies and just a hint of psychedelic is what you get upon listening to Brisbane-based The Wisher & The Well. The band has evolved over the years through the guises of many different bands, but in its current form, it represents the most complete and paramount version of a […]

IAMWE

IAMWE

It is often noted that music chooses you, not the other way around. This statement rings true for Phoenix-based pop/rock foursome IAMWE, featuring Nate Huss (vocals/guitar), Shane Tschida (guitar), Ryan Williamson (guitar) and Josh Carlson (drums). IAMWE was once a quintet though, but Erik (bass) has since left the band. The new incarnation of IAMWE was meant to be in many ways with Tschida, Williamson […]

Skies Collide

Skies Collide

If you’re after a band with an energetic, loud, heavy and melodic sound; you need only to take a listen to Brisbane-based alt-rockers, Skies Collide. The female-fronted quintet began a few years ago when Liam Woods (guitar) and Britt Wilson (vocals) met on Gumtree, at a time when Wilson’s previous were looking for a guitarist. It didn’t take Wilson and Woods to realise that they […]

Light Over There

Light Over There

Light Over There portrays the distance Aileen Henderson and Rex Haberman are from one another, yet it is possible to do anything these days.  The duo came in contact with one another roughly two years ago when Haberman’s other musical pursuit, War Poets, followed Henderson on Twitter. Henderson sent a message to say thank you along with a link to her YouTube channel. Haberman then […]

War Poets

War Poets

A rock band that is guitar-based and strives to get the listener’s attention with captivating lyrics and cool, but classic guitar hooks is the Minneapolis-based band War Poets in a nutshell.  The six-piece initially formed back in 2012 when Rex Haberman (vocals/guitar) joined with long time friend, songwriter and producer Matt Kirkwold (lead guitar/vocals) to form a new band. Between them, they decided to put […]
