Faye is a pop-punk trio, fronted by Sarah Blumenthal on bass and Susan Plante on guitar while newcomer Thomas Berkau backs up the duo on drums. The band filters their sound through ‘90s indie rock aesthetics, all while taking on different themes for each of their songs, whether that is leaving the dead in peace with “Ancient Bones,” or just an unexcited day in the life on “Chow Chow,” both tracks from their self-titled EP. Their latest single, “Dream Punches,” uses insomnia as a catalyst for the writing and direction, with each band member thrashing on their respective instrument. Faye’s new album, You’re Better, was released on August 12 through Self Aware Records.
For Madison Lucas, the lead vocalist and songwriter of Charlotte’s indie pop band Modern Moxie, the art of crafting each song is taken straight from the heart. The band’s 2019 debut, Claw Your Way Out, used self-reliance as a main theme, but their latest EP, Gutter Honey, takes a more introspective look at life and tries to make sense of our place in it, especially as things change as we get older. With arrow-like precision, each track leaves a poetic message for her audience to ponder.
Secret Guest is a contemporary punk band from Charleston, South Carolina.
