Real Friends (US – Fearless Records)
Five friends from Chicago who took on pop-punk with a serious DIY attitude. REAL FRIENDS self-released their first 5 EP’s, taking the scene by storm! Fearless Records signed them back in 2013 to release their first full length and is now also releasing their second album “The Home Inside My Head”. The band distinguished itself in sound by mixing typical Chicago emo with pop-punk, while staying away from most pop music influences which other bands easily embrace.
Microwave (US – Side One Dummy)
Blending elements of hardcore, emo, and indie rock in a melodic cocktail unmatched by scene contemporaries, Atlanta four-piece Microwave balances frankness with a penchant for wit, allowing personal confessions to make a striking impact. Owning the best of the punk continuum, lead vocalist Nathan Hardy will sing, scream and yelp amidst snarling guitar work. While often tipping into the heavier side of resonant punk, the band shines brightest in soft reservation.
Sealow are ready to tear it up with their record “Balancing In Both Worlds”. Formed in 2015 in their hometown Tilburg, the quartet built a solid foundation in just one year. They explore every corner of their beloved genre and leave nothing unused. Their grungy rock is a form where you can’t really tell where they are going next.
