3 Is A Band: December Streets

Always on the look-out for interesting three piece bands, I came across December Streets from the capital city of South Africa, Pretoria and was instantly hooked by their very own take of upbeat synth-pop. Their music contains all the ingredients to be appealing and successful: heavy beats, big synths hooks, sing-along[…]

3 Is A Band: Like A Thief

Followers of my #3IsABand series know that I seem to be particularly drawn to trios from Australia, be it synth-pop, psych-rock or more “mainstream” indie-rock (an oxymoron in itself). It is no different with Like A Thief, because when I listened to the first few bars into “Escape”, I was[…]

3 Is A Band: SKYES

Always excited to be able to feature a three-piece from my own ‘hood… and SKYES from Brooklyn are a band not to be missed. The more I listen to SKYES, the more I totally dig them. While on the surface, you might write SKYES  off as “yet another electronic band”, they run so[…]

3 Is A Band: Bengal Lancers

Wanting to know more about Bengal Lancers, I came across a quote which makes this feature -almost- obsolete: “Bengal Lancers make Music to make your head think and your heart dance.” – That’s very much how I feel too! The three members of Bengal Lancers consisting of Harry Sullivan (lead vocals, guitars, electronics), Charlie Hawkins[…]

3 Is A Band: SXSW2016 Recap of the Most Memorable Trios

Before heading out to Austin to this year’s South By South West Festival, I decided on 16 trios I was most looking forward to seeing live, and while I couldn’t catch them all, I saw most of them and few who weren’t on my list. Truth be told, there are bands who[…]

3 Is A Band: Koppel

While listening to Koppels‘s debut EP “Black & White”, released early this year, I can’t help but getting this warm and fuzzy feeling and a smile wants to appear so desperately on my face. All five tracks on their debut EP sound so much more mature, brilliantly recorded and produced as this usually[…]

3 Is A Band: Flawes

What immediately got me hooked are the vocals: smooth yet not too soft, powerful but not too much, full-bodied and just perfect… perfect for the elegantly sparse setting and overall alluring vibe that Flawes create. Flawes… a half year old UK trio consisting of Josh Carruthers (vocals, keys), Freddie Edwards (guitar) and Josh Hussey (drums)[…]

#3IsABand – 16 Must See Trios at SXSW 2016

In my #3IsABand series, I feature bands whose music excites me and who are comprised of exactly three band members. In my preparation for SXSW 2016 I came across several dozens of really cool trios, who I’d like to feature at a later time. For now, I boiled my long[…]

3 Is A Band: Desert Mountain Tribe

It’s no secret that I am pretty much in love with current psychedelic rock, often labeled ‘psych rock’ or ‘fuzz rock’. Regardless the classification. There are bands that seem to make music with just ‘that’ particular vibe and sound. And some of the ones I like the most happen to be three-piece bands, and[…]

3 Is A Band: Bleached

If someone asked me to describe Bleached in only a short phrase, I’d go with “a little bit like an all female Green Day, maybe less punk and a touch more garage-pop”, and even after having listened to almost everything I could find from this Los Angeles three-piece band, I’d stick[…]
