Now, Now
Minneapolis, MN
“MJ” off of the upcoming Saved due out on May 18th

Minnesota locals, Now, Now, have really started to hammer home the growth that they’ve gone through the 6 years since their last album. Their latest track has a markedly more pop-laden feel than the indie-rock releases they’ve put out in the past. The vibe has switched in a much more Lana Del Ray direction and I’m totally stoked to see what else the new album entails. ~ Petey

Yoke Lore
Brooklyn, NY
“Fake You”

Yoke Lore first fell onto my radar thanks to a stellar performance at a previous Savannah Stopover and I’m so glad they did. The NY based alt-indie project combines storytelling, synths, and killer, reverb laden vocals. ~ Petey

Taken By Trees
Sweden
“Vibrant Colors”

The latest single from the group’s fourth studio album is a soothing ode to a love that encompasses more than yourself and the lengths you’ll go to for it. The layered vocals, bongos and repetitive lines of “Vibrant Colors” make this song a fun one to blast on a road trip or a lazy Saturday. Taken By Trees album Yellow to Blue was released on May 4. – Caila

American Aquarium
Raleigh, North Carolina
“The World Is On Fire”

The latest offering from American Aquarium aptly demonstrates frontman BJ Barham’s growth as a musician, songwriter — and human. He says it best:

“I wrote the first two verses of “The World Is On Fire” the morning after the [election] results came in and quickly realized where the song was going. It was heading toward the same darkness and negativity that I was condemning. The song was becoming the exact thing I was writing to combat.Those verses sat in my notebook until mid-summer 2017, when I found out that my wife and I were expecting our first child in April. I came across the song at a moment of clarity and my point of view completely changed. Hope replaced hate. Certainty replaced confusion.”
– Caila

Family And Friends
Athens, Georgia
“Winding Roads”

This new live video from Studio 1093 in Athens has me more hyped than ever for the upcoming album Felix Culpa. Family And Friends is becoming more effective at harnessing their energy at critical moments — and that makes the songs even more powerful and effective when they let that energy loose. – bill
