3 Is A Band




3 Is A Band: Pretty City

It won’t be the first time that Melbourne’s aptly named fuzz rockers Pretty City will be playing state side, because they’ve been touring the East Coast twice last year, but it is only now that I found out about them, since they are scheduled to perform in Austin, TX for SXSW.[…]

3 Is A Band: Mirror Travel

Granted, Mirror Travel might not have to travel far when playing next month’s SXSW festival, since they’re originally from Austin but are also residing in Taos, New Mexico yet that’s exactly how I came across them: by listening through bands scheduled to be performing at the music festival. Mirror Travel[…]

3 Is A Band: Lyger

The first song I heard of the London three-piece Lyger was “I’m Gonna Destroy You“, which I came across while listening through acts playing this year’s SXSW. Simon Stark, Rich Leeds and Rob Emms who together make up Lyger, create music that is reminiscent of the best 90s alt-rock bands. Take[…]

3 Is A Band: DMA’s

Yesterday, while listening iTune’s alternative radio, a song came up that sounded familiar and that I instantly loved (again). Checking the song Laced and the band DMA’s, I remembered that I came across them last year already. Then a few hours later, the 3rd round of announcements for bands playing[…]

3 Is A Band: Chain Wallet

When I listened to Shade for the very first time, a lot of different memories run through my mind, good memories, from the 80s… youthful, carefree, filled with joy. And nothing has changed. Even upon listening to Shade for the maybe 17th time, it’s still one beautiful little joyful bliss[…]

3 Is A Band: LANY – Make Out (EP)

Looking for a new trio to feature in my weekly #3IsABand column, my partner in crime suggested this Los Angeles-via Nashville-trio who goes by the name of LANY. Listening to their just released EP Make Out, I instantly know I am in for a treat! There’s just the “right amount”[…]

3 Is A band: HÆLOS

Whenever an artist is using special characters in their name, they automatically get more attention and this is no different with HÆLOS – I was instantly intrigued! Luckily, this London three-piece can back up their name choice with some excellent trip-hop inspired, electro-pop. Their music is dark and urgent  at times[…]

3 Is A Band: XY&O (xyando)

Always on the look-out for cool trios, I came across XY&O  (also spelled xyando) last week, and was immediately hooked! Couldn’t believe my luck. It was one of these accidental stumbles -my favorite- me just browsing around SoundCloud and picking up on songs. Fahrenheit got released less than two weeks  ago and[…]

3 Is A Band: A R I Z O N A

“The good is often surprisingly close, especially when living in a cultural metropolis”, is what came to my mind immediately upon learning that  A R I Z O N A  is a three piece from well, New Jersey. They do however divide their time between East Coast, West Coast aka[…]

3 Is A Band: Heyrocco

Music comes always first, when discovering a new band. And the ten tracks on Teenage Movie Soundtrack, the debut album of Heyrocco, were what convinced me instantly, with maybe Jake Miller’s House Party and Loser Denial as standout tracks. Initially, I thought Heyrocco might be from the UK, because they remind[…]
