Audiotree posts excellent live session by Heyrocco – video

Audiotree has posted their half hour session with Heyrocco recorded a couple of weeks ago in Chicago.

The seven-song set includes several of the Charleston trio’s intense and catchy newer numbers — all captured in the high production values that are an Audiotree hallmark.

From the session description:

Their sincere, emotionally driven lyrics heavily fuel grungy, dark-pop tunes. Forceful bass lines create momentum and heavy effects on drums and guitar add sonic depth to a 90′s rock framework.

Luckily, the band feels most at home in a van – they’re amping up their tour schedule to anticipate the release of their debut full-length album.

I’d call Heyrocco’s Comfort from 2012 a really satisfying debut, although I suspect the next full-length will feel more cohesive and be much more heavily promoted.

Here’s “Loser Denial” and “First Song” embedded via YouTube, but check out the complete session, which includes five other songs (“Jake Miller’s House Party”, “Happy”, “Virgin”, “Mom Jeans” and “Elsewhere”) and some of the banter between the band and the host. The session can be purchased for $5.99.

That’s Nathan Jake on lead vocals and guitar, Christopher Cool on bass, and Tanner Cooper on drums.

You can find Heyrocco on Facebook, Bandcamp, Tumblr, and Twitter.
