These longtime friends started their group in Saratoga Springs, New York, and have made a name for themselves with an innovative music style that melds electronic indie rock with hip hop leaning beats and samples. Their 2014 album, Voices, was acclaimed by critics, and named one of the “50 Best Albums of 2014” by Spin Magazine.
Silversun Pickups is one of the most creative rock bands of the era, known for their haunting melodies mixed with sonic force. The Silverlake, California-based band's most recent release is Better Nature.
Based in Oxford, England, Glass Animals released their debut EP, Leaflings, while still at university in 2012. They followed that with their debut album, Zaba, in 2014, and are touring now in support of How To Be a Human Being, a concept album that was released in August of 2016. Singer/guitarist Dave Bayley, guitarist/keyboardist Drew MacFarlane, bassist/keyboardist Edmund Irwin-Singer, and drummer Joe Seaward make up the band.
