Charlotte, North Carolina-based musician Donnie Doolittle makes moody, cinematic indie rock. His debut album, Dreamy D, is nearing completion and will be coming soon. Two singles, “Utopia’s Shit” and “When a Woman,” are out now and available on all streaming platforms. The songs are groove-driven and heavily layered, giving way to large, captivating choruses. The result is dark, synth-heavy indie rock with some melancholic plays on pop sensibility.
With a truly vitriolic approach to song-crafting, Charlotte, NC’s Funeral Chic are one of the most dangerous and explosive bands currently active in the underground circuit. Funeral Chic are among a spring of blackened punk bands, splintering and reshaping black metal’s more caustic sounds into the tangible furor of hardcore and crust punk.
