It Looks Sad is releasing a full-length album on Tiny Engines soon, making a rare appearance as a full band for this one.
It Looks Sad originally began playing shows in early 2012 under the name It Looks Sad, That’s Why I Said It’s You. After a few line-up shifts the band emerged in late 2013 under the shortened name, It Looks Sad. In the Winter of 2013 the band recorded a handful of shimmering, sharp guitar pop / post-punk songs that echo the influence of bands like Surfer Blood and Beach Fossils. Along with the shortened moniker, It Looks Sad. professes a leaner, more straight-forward approach with their new material. The band’s live show is also something to behold as their songs are given a bit more power and room to breathe. Hometown label, Tiny Engines, will release the band’s proper Self-Titled debut in the Summer of 2014.
Cuzco: Math rock heart-stealers, also gearing up to record & release a full-length album on Refresh Records.
Pullover: Indie pop quintet from Charlotte, mumblin’ the lyrics on top of guitars, synths and fuzzy bass.
