Formed in late 2013 with bassist Leah Julius (Cumulus, Sundries), guitarist Whitney Petty (The Grizzled Mighty), vocalist Molly Sides (This Bitch Don’t Fall Off), and drummer Lena Simon (La Luz, Kairos) who was later replaced with Ruby Dunphy in 2016.
Born and bred in New York City, Hollis Brown embarked on a pilgrimage to Nashville to capture their authentic sound. They shacked up for two weeks in the backyard cabin/studio of producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother), and found themselves. They recorded everything live, straight to analog tape. The result was a warm, vintage sound that displays the band's explosive live energy. Their new EP, Nothing & The Famous No One, takes the listener back to that cabin to experience the raw vibe, smell the smoke, and feel alive.
A four piece no wave, post punk band from Philadelphia, PA. Wild and raucous heavy-punk sound careens and caterwauls; catharsis is a raw and siren wail framed around a metal, post-rock/punk, and pounding no wave beat. Tense and explosive, will have you banging your head and shuffling your feet.
Cassie O'Leary (bassist) put out a call on a local feminist group for people who wanted to play together. Adesola (drummer) and Kate (lead singer and rhythm guitarist) answered the call and met up at Cassie's home. They drank a lot of beer, talked about friendship, being a woman in Philadelphia, and jammed in her attic. Adesola met Jayne Rutter (lead guitarist/back up vocals) at a restaurant they both worked at in south Philadelphia where they bonded over their similar musical tastes. Shortly after, Jayne was brought into the crew and took the band to a new level of creativity and depth. Since then, Full bush has opened for Ron Gallo and toured with activist and punk legend Alice Bag. Their self titled album was recorded by Dave Downham at The Gradwell House in Haddonfield, NJ and dropped on August 15th, 2018.
"Full Bush reveal themselves as the rare kind of band that defies any expectation. Their songs unfold like stories from the wittiest person you know, so spontaneous they feel improvised but so seamlessly constructed you’d think they were rehearsed for years. And like a great story, once you hear the beginning, you can’t stop listening until you hear the payoff." - The Key
