NYC folk rockers Porches travel to Europe

NYC folk rockers Porches travel to Europe

It’s a good thing that Porches.' name is in plural form, as there are two distinct sides of this New York based band - recorded one and the live experience. On record, lead singer/songwriter, Aaron Maine makes music that flows as organically as water in a stream. With the jangly tone of his Danelectro re-issue paired with his 20-something baritone voice, Maine transcends musical boundaries that many of his contemporaries would never dare cross. Without fear of being labeled unoriginal, Maine’s approach is simple: pairing relatable, crushing lyrics about cigarettes and sweaty summer nights with some of the most satisfying minor to major chord changes in the “indie” scene to date. On more recent recordings and on tour, Maine is joined by members of the seemingly-everevolving outfit of Porches, including singer/bass player Greta Kline. When Kline and Maine harmonize, they make us yearn for a youth we never had. Porches songs are not all sweet and tame as they might appear on record. The energy expelled at a single Porches show is enough to power a small town or hamlet for at least a week. After playing Shea Stadium last week the band will travel to Europe for a few dates. - Sam Kogon (photo by Heather Craig)
