Say What You Will
From Lake Zoar to New Haven, Say What You Will has honed in on the driving energy that makes their follow-up EP, Anything, Everything so vibrant and addictive. The six-track release follows suit with a redefined sound spectrum, pushing musical boundaries. At the surface driving lyrics sink the hook, while syncopated grooves flow from track to track. The Connecticut punk-rocker’s focus with Anything, Everything is exactly that - to leave no stone unturned.
The opening track “Break Away” is deliberately in-your-face, upfront and technical, with no room for fresh air until the vibey “Carolina,” one of the releases’ mellower tracks. This time around, Say What You Will has released another music video for the EP’s feature track, “Southbound,” with a storyline capturing the band in their home-element. Following the likes of State Champs, Grayscale, Four Year Strong and Sleep On It, Anything, Everything is the record stuck on repeat, that you head-bang along to in the car.
Anything, Everything was recorded and produced by Chris Piquette at No Boundaries Studios in Rhode Island. Say What You Will has seamlessly blended a studio-quality sound into the live setting, already proving certain tracks across the greater New England area.
An active tour schedule, along with writing and recording Anything, Everything has been chaotic, but SWYW is determined to deliver an energetic and engaging performance, night after night. We are grateful for all those who were apart of this journey and made it all possible.
North By North
Hailing from the land of brutal winters and deep dish pizza, North by North have developed their own brand of infectious, spastic yet finely-honed rock and roll. They seamlessly toe the line between 3 minute garage pop anthems and your dad’s favorite “prog-rock deep cuts” cassette tape, with plenty of hooks to spare.
Portrait Party is an indie-rock band from CT. Their unique style is influenced by an assortment of genres that blend together to set a dulcet atmosphere.
