Panther Car comes in the shape of a traditional rock band yet sounds far from it. Their amorphous brand of pop music teeters between the radiant iridescence of psychedelia and the murky darkness of dreams. Every moment is a door that opens into a new room. Songs progress through tangential wormholes as in an ecstatic conversation; music that is equal parts meditation and celebration. Hard to categorize, maybe Panther Car is better defined by negation. Panther Car is not something you want to miss. This is not Panther Car.
With a wall of sound so thick, the Modern Sons can’t help but captivate their listeners. Each of the four members bring their own layer to a ubiquitously sonic ambiance in an attempt to cultivate something organic and new. The four have a dynamic in which they are continually pushing each other to explore new territory using a variety of technological complexities. Saul states, “It’s definitely loud rock, but it has distinguishable vocals and intricate melodies”. The band’s influences include Pink Floyd, Spoon, The Vines, Black Keys, Spoon, 311, Band of Horses, and Silversun Pickups. Lyrically, they cover a wide range of themes with one more recent caveat which is writing music about sustainability, social responsibility, consciousness, and living in the moment.
Steady Trees is an indie rock band inspired by the changing rock n roll styles of the ‘70s and ‘80s. Paying appreciation to artists that paved the way to give us what we have now while recognizing what decade we’re in. A driving backbone of bass and drums paves way for everything from hollering guitar licks, to subdued riffs reminiscent of the Grateful Dead. Prepare for a musical journey through the sounds that connect us with SteadyTrees.
