KOLARS
When it became clear that glam folk act He’s My Brother She’s My Sister was heading towards a hiatus, band members Rob Kolar and Lauren Brown decided to go off and find their own beat. What they learned from their previous outfit was that even folk fans want to find music that makes them move. That’s the dictum that’s guided the duo into the creation of KOLARS. As KOLARS, the pair create a kinetic brand of disco-inspired rockabilly they loving dub glam-a-billy. Kolar provides the soaring, fuzzy guitars while Brown pounds and literally stomps the percussion — she actually stands and tap-dances on a bass drum. Far from a gimmicky trick, the clacking feet add familiar moments one might expect from a hi-hat or the clapping of hands. Even without Brown’s unique method of performing, the band’s sound remains uniquely driving. Take their latest single “One More Thrill”. Crafted like a grooving ’70s country song carved out of the gleaming vibrations of modern rock, the track pulsates right into your chest. It takes your heart by the hand and leads you to the dance floor, daring you to not feel motivated to dance, shimmy, just escape the mundane. “‘One More Thrill’ is about someone who wants to break free from the monotony in their life to pursue their dreams,” the band tells Consequence of Sound. “The video uses imagery and creatures to symbolize that struggle and the excitement of taking that chance.”

Escondido
Escondido is Jessica Maros and Tyler James. Both long time Nashville singer-songwriters, the two met in 2011 during a late night session at James' home studio and bonded over shared love of Ennio Morricone's spaghetti western soundtracks. They recorded their debut album, The Ghost of Escondido, in a single day and released it on their own label, Kill Canyon, in 2013 to critical acclaim. “We wanted it to be like Clint Eastwood playing pop songs at one of the honky-tonks downtown,” James mused. The duo's David Lynch approved sound became the soundtrack to multiple films and TV shows including HBO's Girls and led to appearances on CONAN and ABC's Nashville. The band toured extensively with the likes of Lord Huron, The Lone Bellow, and The Staves before releasing their sophomore album, Walking With A Stranger, in 2016. Following their first national headlining tours, Maros relocated to Los Angeles where the pair recently recorded their 3rd album, Warning Bells, with producer Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Kurl Vile, Beck). The first single, Darkness, is out now

the ghost in you
The Ghost In You is singer-songwriter, Billy Polard. He has been making music for more than half of his life and has been releasing music under «The Ghost In You» moniker for more than a decade. Polard writes, records and releases everything himself from his bedroom. His third album, «Heaven Help Us» was released last summer, which he also did the album art for (as with all his releases). The Ghost In You has been compared to artists like Bon Iver, Red house painters, Iron and Wine, and Jose Gonzalez.
