Badflower
Badflower
Los Angeles rock & roll outfit Badflower brought grit and swagger inspired by the Sunset Strip when they made their debut in 2013. The group initially got together in 2008 under another moniker, later changing bassists and band name. The re-formed lineup -- vocalist/guitarist Josh Cole Katz, guitarist Joseph Paul Morrow, drummer Anthony Sonetti, and bassist Alex Espiritu -- released the Temper EP in 2015 on Hundred Handed Records. The blistering set included the arena-ready single "Animal" in addition to four other raw tracks that condensed the sounds of contemporaries like Royal Blood and Aeges with the fury of early Silverchair. The track "Ghost" arrived in 2018.

Deal Casino has been soundtracking the comeback story of Asbury Park since 2013. A New Jersey beach town that once looked all but lost, after years of economic depression and the devastating wrath of Hurricane Sandy, Asbury has become the sort of underdog story that people write movies about. Its music scene is proof that there is hope for the future of rock and roll, and Deal Casino is at the center of it.

With 3 out of the 4 band members playing together since they were in elementary school, they might as well be a family. When they found their drummer, the band’s work ethic kicked into high gear. They helped to build a local studio, and worked for recording time to get their first EP done. They spent every waking hour writing and recording and learning. They sharpened their skills on stage playing residencies at every small venue in Asbury Park, and a few in Manhattan and Philadelphia.

Their classic rock influences-Led Zeppelin for guitar tone, The Band for harmonies, Pink Floyd for studio techniques, the Who for melody—have informed every decision in their writing. Process-wise, the band is more like the Grateful Dead, living in a house together where they write and practice daily and they work just to afford to keep their music habit going. Their first record evokes the alt-pop of artists like Oasis and Kings of Leon, but as they prepare to release their second LP, they have moved into bold new sonic territory, evoking psych elements of Tame Impala and the moodier indie sounds of Modest Mouse and The National. They revere classic recording techniques—analog devices, tape, real guitars and real drums, 4 part harmonies—and they embrace electronics, with modular synths everywhere and samples artfully placed in their records and live sets.

The band has developed these sounds over the course of the last 5 years, releasing their self-titled first LP in summer of 2017. Their second LP, entitled LLC, comes out between September and November. Engineered and produced by Erik Kase Romero of The Front Bottoms, the album is the result of a winter retreat to Fidelitorium Studios in North Carolina. The band locked themselves away for weeks and created what became a completely new direction for their sound. They hit the road with The Wrecks for a full US tour in November.
Pretty Vicious
Pretty Vicious
Pretty Vicious, the UK band that initially caused the London A&R scene to go all-in on an unruly gang of teenagers from the Welsh valleys, have packed more highs and lows, disappointments and triumphs into their fledgling careers than most bands manage in a lifetime. The Merthyr four piece – Brad Griffiths (vocals and guitar), Elliot Jones (drums), Jarvis Morgan (bass) and Tom McCarthy (guitar) – were only four gigs into their existence when an unseemly A&R scrum plucked them from their small-town Welsh roots and dropped them into an industry whirlwind, barely equipped to survive. Few have experienced this familiar story of too much, too young. Fewer still have had the confidence, belief and raw talent to drag themselves back from the brink and deliver a future classic brimming with youthful dreams and the frustrations of small-town mundanity. Still all under the age of 21 and having experienced the music industry at its most turbulent, Pretty Vicious are a band that have now found their footing; with every scream and guitar screech, they’re one step closer to replicating the arena rock success of their forefathers. Now aligned with Big Machine/John Varvatos Records in the US and long-time supporters Virgin / EMI in the UK, Pretty Vicious are prepared to unlock their immense potential with an anticipated full-length album out in Spring 2019. With recording now complete with producer Dan Austin (You Me At Six, Twin Atlantic, Pulled Apart By Horses), their forthcoming debut features Top 30 hit “Move,” raucous “Are You Entertained?” as well as “These Four Walls,” prompting Loudwire to declare “2019 is just starting, but Pretty Vicious already are a strong contender for the first breakout band of the year.”
