Mike Mains & The Branches

Known for their catchy, free-associating, indie pop-rock melodies, Mike Mains & The Branches invites diverse comparisons to acts such as Foster The People, Young the Giant, The Killers, and Arcade Fire—each comparison act a genuine facet of the band’s energetic and often soul-searching music.

Alternative/Indie group OWEL releases new single, “I Saw Red,” from their upcoming album Paris, out this Spring. This first effort from the impending album showcases a different side to the band. Lead singer Jay Sakong adds, “I had no idea that it was going to end up being the first single we released. It's different than the rest of the record, so I was a bit unsure. However, it’s the most honest and straightforward song I've ever written, and I think there's a real honesty and innocence in that simplicity.”
Paris is the follow-up to their breakout second album, Dear Me (2016), which received over five million streams. Featuring delicate, dreamy vocals, elegant string arrangements and a tasteful touch of electronic elements throughout, the band has created a truly stunning sound that is all their own and simultaneously feels classic and modern. Paris was co-produced by vocalist Jay Sakong and Gates’ vocalist Kevin Dye and will be released on March 29th, 2019.
To date, OWEL has shared stages with the likes of Minus the Bear, Foxing, Mae, A Lot Like Birds, Piebald, and Casey Crescenzo, and has performed at many major festivals including: Firefly, Gentlemen of the Road, SXSW, CMJ and Northside Festival. The group has also been noted as a band to watch by Pitchfork, NPR, Grantland, Noisey and more.
