This week’s Two4Tunesday features two bands which are signed to independent labels, and man they’re awesome!
I discovered the fantastic TEAM* while checking out what one of my favourite bands (Forever The Sickest Kids) was upto these days and discovered that the members were all currently working on side projects; TEAM* being one of them.
TEAM* consists of Caleb Turman and Rico Garcia (Forever The Sickest Kids), Jay Vilardi (The Almost) and Bryan Donahue (formerly of Boys Like Girls). To date, the band have released two EPs, TEAM* EP and Good Morning Bad Day.
This particular song is superb and almost like a crossover of indie, beach-rock and pop. The video is well worth a watch too; it’s quite an inspirational song and video.
TEAM* – ‘I Like It’
As for New City Kings, well they were a very recent discovery, when I saw them support McBusted on their recent tour. NCK have performed at South By Southwest, Bestival and Download Festival and supported acts such as The Cribs, Marilyn Manson, and London Grammar. The band consist of brothers, Mark Kovic (vocalist) and Ben Kovic (guitarist) as well as Ben Nyari (drummer). They hail from Chelmsford, Essex (UK) and although they are a British band, clearly have American influences.
I particularly like this song and felt it was worth sharing this week, as I can see this band going on to big things.
New City Kings – ‘Change’
Happy Two4Tunesday! Which 2 songs will you choose to share?
