~ Peyote Ugly ~
With a name like Peyote Ugly, there’s no shortage of imagery that comes to mind. The synth-psych trio lives up to the hype of their moniker. The band has spent the last couple of years in Seattle’s dives and playing a wealth of shows as they fine-tuned the songs that would eventually become the Peyote Ugly EP. The result is a collection of songs that feel like a rare cool breeze waving through the barren desert. Not really “ugly”, but you can feel notes of spacey peyote in the mix.
~ New Bloom ~
Pulling influences from hardcore, post-punk and The Carpenters, New Bloom is the love child of four misled youth that live their lives thrashing in the unknown. Coming practically out of nowhere and straight to your eardrums, they aim to engage those willing to listen in a cathartic satisfaction some have described as "… Pretty goddamn fun. Who are they again?" New Bloom invite friends and perfect strangers to blossom into their true and free selves in spite of all the depression and malaise this era brings us.
~ WONGS ~
WONGS is a garage rock band formed in 2016. Born from the bottom of the bong, WONGS get their heavy guitar rock straight from hell. With the band’s sound rooted in the blues, these boys play fast and they play hard. Influenced by the likes of Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Zeppelin and Sabbath. These Seattle rock n rollers have been playing around town since their first demo release and have since released one studio EP with more in the works for 2018.
