Welcome to Noise Creator’s New Noise column where we tell you about the best up and coming bands we think everyone will be talking about soon. By Deanna Chapman Summer Wars have been making waves as an unsigned band from Raleigh, North Carolina. While the band is unsigned, they’ve teamed up with Carry The 4 PR to promote their releases. Back in October, they released Better Days and it garnered quite a bit of attention. They had the title track premiere at Idobi and recently, they released their Acoustic EP. The EP consisted of all of the songs from Better Days in acoustic form plus “Live Defeated,” which premiered on Substream Magazine. The full EP stream can be found at Under The Gun. The pop-punk band made enough noise with last year’s release to bring themselves more attention with their acoustic songs. Now, I’m a sucker for acoustic songs so it didn’t take much convincing to hear these iterations of them. The band has their identity and sound down to a science. Better Days was energetic and catchy pop-punk and the Acoustic EP brought a little more emotion to those same songs. With the acoustic songs, you can really hone in on Read more…

Welcome to Noise Creator’s New Noise column where we tell you about the best up and coming bands we think everyone will be talking about soon. By Justin Johnson Shadow of Whales is a power pop band from Austin. An unusual name for a band, yes, but in the interview, bassist Jeremy Boyum explains how the band met, the interesting way the band name came to be and other fun facts. Before I get to the interview, let me just say that I love this band. I’ve seen them play a few times here in San Antonio and in a college town between SA and Austin called San Marcos. The first time I saw them, I had never heard of them. They were opening for a national touring act at The 1011 in San Antonio and I was blown away. Their stage presence was phenomenal and extremely entertaining to the point where I didn’t want their set to end. By the end, I really didn’t care if I saw the touring band play, I just wanted SOW to keep playing. As I’ve gotten to know these super rad guys, I love how humble they are, how they treat their fans (they Read more…

Welcome to Noise Creator’s New Noise column where we tell you about the best up and coming bands we think everyone will be talking about soon. ByCheska Colombo A while back, we featured up-and-comers Marina City after their big Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands win and Casey Bates produced EP Wanderlust. After a busy few months of touring, the ambitious pop rock group have announced their next step: a new EP called Lost Doesn’t Mean Alone. Check out the band’s official statement below: Marina City is excited to announce Lost Doesn’t Mean Alone, the live acoustic EP. The band is excited to embark on a project that no one has done before. Not only is Marina City teaming up with famed producer/ singer/ songwriter, Craig Owens, to record an acoustic EP songs both old and new, they are doing all of this in front of a live in-studio audience. And what’s more, the band will be recording this in five different studios with five different audiences across the Midwest. The idea is to create an EP that has the quality of a studio but the energy and grittiness of a live performance. The band will be recording a documentary series Read more…

Welcome to Noise Creator’s New Noise column where we tell you about the best up and coming bands we think everyone will be talking about soon. By Ben Sailer Everything moves in cycles. This is a basic truth of the universe that extends from the passing of day to night, to the changing of seasons. For musicians, this principle generally plays out in the form of a band starting up, flaming out, and its members moving onto their next project. This leads us to the story of Youth League. Formed from the ashes of Wilmington, NC math rock outfit Virgin Lung, the group was initially intended to be a loop-heavy two-piece. After just a few shows, the duo added Jaffar Omar Obi Castillon-Martinez on bass guitar, finalizing the lineup that would write and record the band’s fittingly titled First EP. “All of us just had similar tastes in music and found it pretty easy early on the write and play together as a three piece,” the band said via email. Featuring six tracks of mathematical punk-infused indie-pop recorded and mixed by Aslan Freeman and mastered by Noise Creators founder Jesse Cannon, it buries its hooks deep, working its way into your Read more…
