Sunbathers

Sunbathers are an indie rock/pop band that formed in the fall of 2013 in Washington, D.C. Currently based out of Baltimore, the band's music has received regular airplay on local radio (with station WTMD recognizing the band with a "Top 89 Songs of 2016" award) and has been featured on multiple official Spotify playlists. In February of 2017, Spinnin’ Records released a remix of their song “Intimacy” by Belgian melodic house act Curtis Alto, and in September, Sunbathers released "Honeysuk." Sunbathers made their festival debut at Firefly Music Festival in 2018, and released "A Heat Wave" in March of 2019.

Blake the Man 1000

Blaketheman1000 is a singer/songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. His songs ponder topics such as failed romances, youthful angst, and identity. If Vampire Weekend is the musical equivalent of a Wes Anderson movie, one might say that Blaketheman1000 is the musical equivalent of a Michael Cera movie. Fans of Mac Demarco, Frankie Cosmos, and Alex G are likely to enjoy Blaketheman1000.

Super Low

Don’t know what’s to come now,” sings Super Low’s Tiger Adams in the opening track to that band’s debut album. “Just wish you could see that it isn’t going to stay this way.” It’s hopeful, encouraging sentiment married perfectly to a dream pop backdrop that chimes, jangles and whirls giddily around. Super Low is the rare artist that knows that heartfelt and often downcast expressions don’t have to be stuck to music that weighs you down like wet clothing. There are ways to have those tough conversations and deal with harrowing thoughts while letting the sunshine warm your skin and a nice cocktail warm your insides.

The Memphis-based indie pop band, led by singer/guitarist Tiger Adams and keyboardist Harry Neblett, was until recently known as China Gate. The group released a full-length and an EP under that moniker and have been picking up a small head of steam in their hometown and beyond thanks to their ebullient live shows—either their own or opening up for the likes of Pinegrove and Hoops—and a well-regarded 2017 SXSW showcase.

With a new name, and a brand-new self-titled album ready to share with the world, Super Low are poised for much bigger stages and more acclaim. Recorded mostly last January at Young Avenue Sound with Calvin Lauber (engineer for Julien Baker’s Turn Out The Lights), each song is filled with little sonic touches and surprising intrusions that gets revealed like small secrets with every spin. They’ve already got tours lined up for the summer and even more new material set to be released into the world. Super Low doesn’t know what’s to come but with this spectacular new album ready to drop and a ball of pent up energy at their core waiting to burst free, they won’t stay a local secret for very much longer.

Shep Treasure

Shep Treasure is the epitome of adventurous and dreamy pop rock. The band originates from Rochester, NY and is fronted by Sabrina Nichols (formerly of Slumbers), who writes songs and shreds lazy guitar lines. She is joined by Tiger Adams on bass and John Lewandowski on drums, and together they create irresistible, sloppy pop songs. Clever bass lines and intricate drumming follow melodic vocals that are full of honest and sometimes sarcastic lyrics, to create songs that are placed just outside of reality, while still sympathizing with whoever may be listening. The band recently recorded a full length LP in Memphis, TN, and is prepping for its highly anticipated release later this year.
