The Gay Blades
The Gay Blades are a two piece from somewhere in or near New York City and play an acerbic brand of Trash Pop. What is Trash Pop, you ask? Trash Pop is what happens when two keenly observant wanna be hipsters write songs the same pair couldn't possibly pull off live, and make up for their missing bass player with consistent TNT like performances and a heaping spoonful of swagger. The Gay Blades invented it. Trust me.
CMJ - "If Freddie Mercury sang for Death From Above 1979, these guys would open the show!"
Alternative Press - "Melodically addictive pop"
The Static Jacks
Since they formed in 2009, Westfield, New Jersey's The Static Jacks (lead vocalist Ian Devaney, guitarists Henry Kaye and Michael Sue-Poi, and drummer Nick Brennan) have earnestly burned their own path through indie rock's crowded field. Ignoring music's fickle trends, the Jacks have forged a unique blend of punk, garage, and soul sounds for a sonic punch to the gut and heart.
"The band certainly brought it's big-stage game. Think of a young Bono….fronting The Replacements, filtered through something dramatic and British -- maybe Glasvegas or Echo & The Bunnymen -- and you'll come close to the raw, but polished power of its first single, 'Into the Sun.'" --Filter
"One of our favourite Breakthrough finds so far." --NME
"A solidly brash and soulful collection of candid tunes that seem almost perfectly crafted." --Zink
