The Unlikely Candidates
Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, The Unlikely Candidates are an indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male in 2008. Eventually expanding the lineup to include guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, the band signed on with major-label Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, the Unlikely Candidates returned with a hooky new single in “You Love Could Start a War,” which made a strong showing on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.
My Body Sings Electric
My Body Sings Electric has spent more than a decade tirelessly building a following for their playfully honest blend of indie, alternative and post-hardcore rock. The band is prepared to release their most ambitious work yet with a new album slated for 2018 mixed and produced by Jason Livermore - Rise Against, A Day To Remember.
MBSE's debut full length, “Part 1: The Night Ends” showed impressive sales for a self-managed and unsigned band, reaching #1 on the Billboard Rocky Mountain Charts and #156 for Billboard’s National Indie Chart. Their video for the first album single, New Friends, earned a premiere on MTV Buzzworthy.
The band has amassed a list of impressive dates on tour with Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Nick Thomas of The Spill Canvas, The Hush Sound and arena dates opening for Imagine Dragons, Young the Giant, Grouplove, and Bastille and more.
Denver, CO-based New Wave, Rumours Follow, recently released singles “Spitting Raindrops” and “Don’t You Love Me” - now streaming on Spotify. Rumours Follow fuses elements of jazz, funk, alt-rock and pop together, while adding satirical and metaphorical lyrics that show their 90’s rock and 80’s pop influences.
Having shared the stage with Panic! At the Disco, Twenty One Pilots, American Authors, Walk The Moon, MS MR, Bad Suns, Brick + Mortar, Andy Grammer, The Royal Concept, The Spill Canvas, The Griswolds, Tokio Hotel and Parade of Lights, the synth-pop band are far from newcomers on the Colorado scene. The Howler says, “Rumours Follow, one of Denver’s finest alt-rock bands with a sweet tooth for synthesizers and charming piano kicks, have been broadening in popularity rapidly since winning the main stage on Channel 93.3’s Big Gig 2014.”
The Rooster raves, “Rumours Follow” is a time-traveling delicacy and a complete deviation from tired local sounds. Think 80s video montage scenes with so many consensual sex scenes.” AltVibe chimes to say, “In their short existence, the three piece band has covered a lot of ground sonically” and “The comparisons that can be drawn to this band are endless, but making themselves sound similar to so many bands of several different styles is what truly makes them stand out as their own.”
