A dance line-up not to be missed! This is one for the ages:
Like queen, but with two Freddy Mercurys and a Phil Collins. Sphynx had a breakout year in 2017, releasing 2 EPs, ‘Floppy Disco’ and ‘Space Camp,’ and played packed venues and festivals across the US, opening for top acts like Questlove and Walk The Moon. That momentum continued into 2018 with the February release of ‘Patterns,’ a synthwave groove illustrating the band’s penchant for timeless hooks with a modern edge. The single was streamed more than 43,000 times in its first week and received independent radio play across the US, UK, and Mexico. ‘Patterns’ also caught the attention of NPR Music’s All Songs Considered, who said, “Sphynx is li...ke Tame Impala if Kevin Parker grew up on a healthy diet of disco,” and called ‘Patterns’ “an effortless, high octane jam.” With a string of videos and singles set for release and 2018 appearances at festivals in the US and Europe, Sphynx’s buzz is just beginning. Years spent sleeping in vans and performing in dive bars have shaped a band with a fresh take on pop music and a stadium-worthy live show.
Fuss Ricket is a fringe-act mix of analog and digital techniques with an unrelenting rhythmic energy and varied musical precedents unveiled in a strangely fresh form. The only truly useful information I can give you is that nothing quite sounds like this band right now. To come close you may have to take doses of The Talking Heads, The B52s, Panic At The Disco! and Empire of the Sun, and then put it through a blender a couple of times. One time out of ten, you may hit on the right magical mix.
Like a great Friday night, Kady Rain transports listeners to a more cheerful, carefree world where dancing is a requirement and love is an obligation. — Do512
Kady Rain just has the bubblegum pop genre in her bag. Rain is a blue-haired Texan who mixes smart, pop music with hints of indie rock sophistication. – Buffablog
Ladyfang (formerly A Case for Brooklyn) is an indie rock, alternative band originally formed in Austin in late 2013. Their music is upbeat, eccentric, funky and folksy with an otherworldly vibe and a flare for the frenetic. Singer, Cara Juan, has been compared to Bjork and Gwen Stefani and her haunting howls and melodic nuances lead the band's unique sound. Their performances are passionate and thunderous, filled with chaotic dancing and an unencumbered playfulness. They relocated to Brooklyn in 2014 and released their first single, "All Your Money" in 2016. Independent Music News called it a "devilishly zesty song." That same year, the band returned to Austin with a new name and lineup. In early 2017, the band released their newest single, "How Long," which Ovrld described as an anti-romance song with a "lovably un-hip" and sincere sound.
