Weller
Weller
Anchored by ringing guitars and equally vibrant vocals, Philadelphia's Weller is easy to compare to 90s college rock or any other sun-kissed genre format of that bygone era. However, the difference lies in this three-piece's command of millennial anxieties and awareness that eclipses the easy nostalgia marker. The band is gearing up to record their debut LP this summer after a year of steady touring and releases, to fully lock in their revived, yet refined take on a once-golden formula.
Kississippi
Kississippi
In August of 2014, Zoë Allaire Reynolds put out a 5-song EP under the moniker Kississippi, and later that month, Colin James Kupson moved to Philadelphia to attend The University of the Arts (for Music Technology). The two began collaborating on music together after meeting on Tinder(!) They honed their output, and went in to the Drexel studios in January 2015 with Jake Ewald. The record, named after a friend whom scrawled "we have no future, we're all doomed" across a class picture of Zoë and themselves, is a 6-song exploration into what the duo were capable of. What comes of the creative foray is a magnetic, multi-faceted output that sees the marriage of the two's musical backgrounds; featuring Beach House-like synth harmonies, syncopated beat manipulation, and Drop C basslines. After playing many months of shows as a 2-piece, they decided to approach friends to help flesh the performances out, creating a weighted and significant live show, which exemplarily demonstrate the duo's goal to create "amp worshipping pop/popviolence," or an amalgamation of heavy energy and theatrics with pop hooks and dreamy haze.
