Backwords Premieres “Gloria” on The Deli

Backwords blends modern psychedelics with folk-rock, 60s-pop and a myriad other sonic surprises. Like a bluebird fluttering through the prairie, Backwords delivers gentle, lazy melodies that stick to the tongue and cannot be forgotten. And like a vigilant hawk nesting atop a New York City skyscraper, there is a fury—a swooping darker underside that Backwords is not hesitant to embody – be it in lyrical cynicism, primal growl, or feedbacking improvisations.  In between sun-drenched, flowery pop melodies, freak-outs are always welcomed.  Check out the premiere of their latest single here

The Holy Coast “The Space We Haunt” Premieres on The Music Ninja

The Holy Coast formed in Phoenix Arizona in 2012. 

With all three members bringing something unique to the bands sound and after only a couple months of writing and recording at Walkers home studio The Holy Coast exploded on to the Phoenix live scene playing their first show in May 2013 opening for Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better) and Plastic Plates where the band enjoyed a very warm response from the large Phoenix audience. 

While continuing throughout the year writing and playing more shows along side Slow Magic, Superhumanoids and French Horn Rebellion the band began to build a loyal following in Phoenix.

In January 2014 the band recorded 5 songs at Flying Blanket Recording in Mesa, Arizona gaining the attention of Common Wall Media who agreed to release The Holy Coast EP.

The Holy Coast EP features 5 very different songs, while Brett’s vocal is the common thread, the bands sound is layered with depth, combining electronic and acoustic elements pulling influences from many genres.
