"Dog Bite is the brainchild of Atlanta's 22 year old Phil Jones, a project of sun-baked anthems caught the ears of London's Young Turks Records (The XX, Wavves, Gang Gang Dance, Holy Fuck). For the past two years Dog Bite has been releasing a steady stream of creepy psychedelic/folk pop songs, gaining praise from taste-maker media outlets like Pitckfork and Fader.
Now, Jones has enlisted some of Atlanta's finest to transform Dog Bite into a real rock n' roll force: Will Fussell of Mood Rings, Stephen Lusce of Red Sea, Woody Shortridge of Balkans, and Cameron Gardner of Washed Out. Finally, Dog Bite will be a fully realized live sound.
Dog Bite combines all your hopes and dreams, fuses them with grapes and butterflies, and then lays them out on a tray with sliced oranges.
Young Unknowns donʼt believe in hype… and werenʼt created from it either. The formation of the group began on a sidewalk in Brooklyn when singer/ guitarist, Meredith Meyer, ran into drummer, Matt Arbeiter. Soon after, bassist, Brian Percivall, joined the duo; and feeling the undeniable chemistry, this new Brooklyn band began forging their sound. Produced by indie rock veteran Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, Mates of State, Hopewell, Miniature Tigers, Love Like Fire), the bandʼs debut EP You Are a Young Unknown dares the listener to go beyond the laptop. Young Unknowns blend musical textures, intricate arrangements, driving beats and addictive melodies with slightly haunting, transporting and still-rock-n-rolling undertones.
An “experienced ingénue,” Meyer is musically seasoned, but has remained independent and largely under the radar. Her two solo albums, along with her signature ethereal and psychedelic vocals,
recently attracted the attention of German DJ Dennis Sheperd, who released his own early trance version of the groupʼs premiere single “Target Practice” in September 2011 on High Contrast Recordings. The EP is expected to be released in May 2012 and is rumored to have a couple of "guest musicians" helping out the kids.
Amalie Brunn released her debut album in 2006 on Kick Music with 11
songs written by herself and her father Michael Christie. Amalie Bruun

Denebi from Stockholm . In 2008 she created the title song for Reality
show Paradise Hotel . The song is called If You Give It Up and has

circle international award. She is now permanently residing in New
York. In 2010 she published The EP 'Branches' which was recorded at
Pirate Studios in New York in partnership with Watt White. In August
2010 played Amalie Bruun in a commercial for Chanel perfume Bleu De
