Recommended


    Reject Royalty

    Throop, Pa.

    Sounds like: A mixture of classic and alternative rock. Their upbeat sound makes you want to get up and move.

    Fun fact: Reject Royalty’s front man is a man bun, Cher is their guilty musical pleasure, and they like to make stuff up about themselves.

    Coping Skills

    Philadelphia, Pa.

    Sounds like: Bedroom pop with catchy rhythms influenced by the events that unfold in their own lives. For fans of Mitski and Flatsound.

    Fun fact: The members of Coping Skills are both huge Spongebob Squarepants enthusiasts and can both collectively quote every line of the movie ‘10 Things I Hate About You’.

    The Blithedale Romance

    N.J.

    Sounds like: Aggressive, honest, and melodic — with a perfect blend of new noise and melodic punk.

    Fun fact: The group has dubbed their touring vehicle “Macho Van Vandy Savage” as it is the cream of the crop.
