The month of June is coming to an end, but the music never stops at WCL! Our upcoming artists offer an eclectic range of musical genres that will satisfy anyone’s tastes! To give you a better idea, we’ve created a Spotify playlist with their music. Listen here!
Future Thieves “Sucker” (August 6)
Future Thieves latest release, “Sucker” is the first new song which the band has put out since their debut LP Horizon Line in 2015. Recorded in a small lodge on a lake in Eastern Tennessee, “Sucker” has the same indie-rock vibe as their past record, yet it represents what the group feels is the next step in how their music should evolve. In a recent interview, bandmember Nick said, “It’s different, but the idea is to have it represent us as a collective group while pushing our boundaries and comfort zones.” Future Thieves always promises to give their audience the best possible performance, so be sure to catch them live on August 6!
Snake Club “This Could Be Us” (August 12)
The Philadelphia natives of Snake Club masterfully blend RnB, Hip Hop, and Pop with jazz backgrounds in their music. “This Could Be Us,” their most recent release from March 2017, is a perfect representation of this original style. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Ariana Grande, and Anderson Paak, the group incorporates smooth vocals, sensual harmonies, and soulful horn solos to create their own unique sound.
Penny and Sparrow “Finery” (September 17)
In their latest album, “Let a Lover Drown You,” Texas born indie-folk duo Penny and Sparrow “delve into numerous new and diverse sound landscapes… without sacrificing the sharp honesty that’s accompanied their career thus far.” Penny and Sparrow create music that is relaxing and easy to listen to, and possess a sound similar to The Swell Season, Bon Iver, and Mumford & Sons. Hear Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke’s smooth vocals, honest lyrics, and acoustic instrumentation in their song “Finery”!
