Rival Waves Embraces Technological Rock

 Rival Waves is an Austin-based rock band fusing propulsive, distortion-soaked anthems with sweeping personal and political themes. Armed with arena-ready songs reminiscent of Pearl Jam and U2, the band is driven to create a more meaningful connection between art and audience. With a DIY ethos focused on the convergence of music and tech, an inclination towards consistent musical experimentation, and an earnest commitment to topics ranging from the intimately personal to the sociopolitical, Rival Waves take their cues from Fugazi as much as they do Foo Fighters. As Rival Waves continues to focus on leveraging technology to disrupt a fragmented musical landscape and establish a more engaged audience, the band is gearing up to release a debut album and launch a super-served digital fan community known as theCollective - partnering with companies in Austin’s thriving tech sector to help turn these ideas into realities. In the meantime, Rival Waves is focused on writing new material, using digital technology to grow their live show into an even more memorable and experiential event, and finding ways to serve an engaged and impassioned audience.

Why Bonnie Breaks Out With Nostalgic Dream Pop

The Austin-based quintet, Why Bonnie, brings together hazey dream pop with shoegazed vibes that are most reminiscent of Alvvays and Japanese Breakfast. Wistful lyrics coalesce with shimmering guitars to create a disassociative state where nostalgia washes over warm melodies. Blair Howerton fronts the band with a narrowed focus on quality songwriting and lyrics that are then fleshed out by dexterous instrumentation from the rest of the band. "Made of Paper" was released in February and their new EP, "Nightgown", was released June 20th and the band is currently on tour across America. Tap into the pop escapism of Why Bonnie by checking out their tour dates on the link here.
