Our friends at NoiseNarcs.com are hosting a sweet slew of bands on March 19th for us Philadelphians to check out. Cozy Galaxies, Grubby Little Hands, and Bridge Underwater will surely make for a awesome blend of mellow tunes and rock & roll.
Cozy Galaxies – Clean Yourself Up
Cozy Galaxies – Dreamer
Cozy Galaxies certainly bring the rock. With unique and catchy riffs, and interesting synths, the band breaks down into slow melodic sections in “Dreamer”, before picking up the pace with soulful vocals and groovy rock and roll solos. I’m a dreamer in Philadelphia, too. “Clean Yourself Up” is a slower tune, with sweeping synth pads over acoustic strumming and clean electric harmonies. The two songs definitely exhibit the wonderful range that these guys from Lancaster bring together.
Grubby Little Hands – The Length Of The Chains
Grubby Little Hands – Feel In My Back
“Feel in My Back” gives an erie first impression, with wandering vocals drawling across steady half time drums, but they break into a nice groove at 1:40. The vocals pick up, and the trumpet comes in – spilling a smooth nonchalance into the jam. Late Beatles meets Cake. Nice tune. “The Length of the Chains” is more mellow, with an entrancing build and a chanting rhythmic chorus over minimalistic percussion. These Philly fellows are sure to be great live.
Bridge Underwater – Send Me All Your Love
Bridge Underwater – The Whoa Song
Bridge Underwater is a rocky bouncey mix of the Clash and the Cure. Foot-tapping pop rock with Weezer-esque vocals and groovy percussion. “Send Me All Your love” is an upbeat danceable tune, while “The Whoa Song” is a slower jam with a nice bass-line to carry it home. Good for driving on sunny days, many of which are soon to come!
You can catch these guys at the M Room on March 19th. That’s at 15 West Girard, Philadelphia.
