Shadowgraphs is a neo-psychedelic band from Charlotte, NC, comprised of internationally known collage artist Bryan Olson and fellow German cosmonaut Charles Glade (Wils). Both ends met after being introduced through a mutual friend who thought the two shared similar musical interests. Bryan and Wils instantly sparked a connection and songs began to emerge. The two would experiment late nights with tape machines, sharing music and production ideas, and writing songs. After only four months of meeting, an EP titled “Return to Zero” was written and the band was officially born with Ethan Ricks on Bass and Cody Hare on Drums.
Future States is a psychedelic pop band who make music that rewards repeat headphone listens as much as it inspires fevered dancing. Their music is built on layers of weaving keys, woozy guitars, and sampled sounds, paired with a propulsive rhythm section. On top of these dense textures sit pristine pop melodies and reverb-soaked harmonies.
Echo Courts: “Subduing the low end, Greensboro’s Echo Courts allow their psych-addled sound to swirl and sprawl. The guitars tangle, refracted through just the right amount of reverb, as bass lines cut through despite a thin tone. Echo Courts exist somehow as both a driving rock band and a bleary-eyed pop outfit.” – Jordan Lawrence, Indy Week
