Brooklyn's Highly Suspect take their bluesy alt rock to SXSW





Brooklyn's Highly Suspect take their bluesy alt rock to SXSW

In the 90's, Seattle produced two REALLY bluesy bands that went on to become two of the most popular acts from the grunge wave: Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. In today's Brooklyn-centered rediscovery of that west coast sound, we haven't heard a lot of bluesy overtones - until Highly Suspect came on our radar. This young group (who made our latest list of Best Emerging NYC Bands) has the chops to pull off this kind of heavyness through a punchy interplay between their tight power trio set up and Johnny Stevens' powerful but expressive lead vocals. Their latest single "Lydia" (streaming) is getting a lot of attention, the band is going to bring it live to the Austin crowds at next week's SXSW Festival.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Alt Rock songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
