PUBLIC – 4Her

PUBLIC

PUBLIC

PUBLIC are a dynamic indie pop trio from Ohio comprised of John Vaughn (lead vocals/guitar), Ben Lapps (drums) and Matt Alvarado (bass).

Their addictive new release called ‘4Her’ is a track about taking a chance in a relationship by accepting the uncomfortability of vulnerability.

We’ll dance to that.

Playlist: Four Authors

Four Authors

Four Authors

Four Authors are making a bit of an impact in the UK music scene, having already been described as “pop rock at it’s finest” by BBC Introducing.

With that in mind, the boys have put together a wicked playlist for Indietronica. Listen below.

Panic! At The Disco – I Write Sins Not Tragedies

One of their earliest songs and one of their best, although they do keep consistently writing phenomenal music.

Twenty One Pilots – Heavy dirty soul

We love this band for their unique way to blend so many genres of music together including two of our favourites, Rock and Rap.

Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark

We’ve grown up being a huge fan of this band right back from their early punk beginnings. One of our favourite things about this band is their ever evolving sound. We could have chosen any number of songs by FOB but this one best represents their modern pop rock anthems they have had a habit of writing over the past two albums.

One Republic – Counting Stars

Lead single from an album we found while traveling, this song is a pop rock masterpiece and the soundtrack to an amazing time in our lives.

Ed Sheeran – I See Fire

He’s one of the greatest musical talents of the last few years. We’ve been listening to him way before he made it massive and he’s still writing brilliant songs. We love how I See Fire sounds so HUGE with so little actually on it.

Ward Thomas – Carry You Home

Reminds us of American country rock and being in Nashville. Big Chorus!

Taylor Swift – I Know Places

Every one of Taylor’s songs are so musically different, probably down to the different producers and writers she collaborates with. We chose this because of the fantastic melodies she uses in the vocals.

One Republic – Wherever I Go

Pretty much every song Ryan Tedder writes is a lesson on how to write a hit track.

Twenty One Pilots – Stressed out

They’re putting out music that is different and mix different styles in their tracks really well.

Their album is out now via ALYA RECORDS.

Sounds like: Fun, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Temper Trap

Playlist: Great Good Fine Ok

GGFO

GGFO

Jon Sandler and Luke Moellman are Great Good Fine Ok (or GGFO for regular listeners of their synth-laden music).

They’ve teamed up with Indietronica once again and put together a playlist for us.

Breakbot – Arrested

LUKE: Love the groove on this one. Drums and percussion are sparse and simple but the complexity and funk comes from the synth and guitar rhythms. Lyrics are kind of hilarious to me — likening a romantic encounter to a legal offense? — but it works somehow.

One Republic – Wherever I Go

JON: As a crazy person with a car in NYC, I end up listening to a ton of top 40 radio. When you are suffocated with same 20 songs over and over again, you develop a unique ability to differentiate the “hits” from the HITS. I am not sure what category this song falls into yet, because I’ve only heard it twice, once when they performed it on Jimmy Fallon and once when I just looked it up on Spotify, but I do know one thing, it will soon be on the radio ALL THE TIME. Ryan Tedder is considered one of the best pop songwriters for a reason. From One Republic’s hit “Apologize” in 2006 to their hit “Counting Stars” in 2013 to songs for Beyonce and everyone one else you can think of, this dude never stops killing it. Soon we’ll all be sick of this song and it won’t be cool to talk about it, but for now, enjoy!

Porches – Mood

LUKE: As a producer one of the first things that grabs me about a track is the combination of sounds. The way the elements on this track contrast with themselves in how they give the illusion of space is great. The drums, guitars, bass, and percussion are all super dry, groovy, and right in the front, but the vocals and especially the keyboards are dramatically spacious. The writing is incredibly beautiful as well. Kind of sounds like if Midlake and Prefab Sprout collaborated on a song and James Murphy produced it.

Sia – Cheap Thrills

JON: While I’ve got radio and pop songwriters on the mind, i’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Sia’s latest banger “Cheap Thrills”. Something about a choir of kids singing “I love cheap thrills!” makes me very happy.

Steve Reich – Mallet Quartet: III. Fast

LUKE: Steve Reich has had a huge influence on the music I write. The muted piano part that plays at the beginning of “Always” and continues throughout the track is very Steve Reich to me (although he’d never swing the rhythm quite like that). I grew up playing a lot of mallet percussion, so that’s something that always seems to work its way into my music as well.

Their single, ‘Always’ is out now.
