Now imagine a drum roll in your head as you scroll down and introduce yourself to the bands…..
Airline Prepares to Take Flight
While they have been compared sonically to the Kinks, The Police, and Pink Floyd, Dallas-based Airline is anything but a throwback. Ranging from pensive to explosive, their sound is the sum of the creative tension between four opinionated musicians.
The band hammers away at each song until the arrangement is taut and visceral. “We don’t quite fit the slacker image of just jamming away in the garage. We’ve been known to argue over the placement of one bass note or chord voicing. But when the song finally clicks, we all know it,” explains Airline.
Catch Airline’s performance at Road to RedGorilla’s Dallas Regional Showcase and pick up the band’s new
debut LP, Farewell Republica. Check out Airline’s music at www.myspace.com/airlinemusic
Merging melodic song craft with psychedelically infused sounds, Sunwards music moves in a refreshing direction somewhere between indie-pop and space rock. While their compositions are steeped in lush, heady audioscapes painted by atmospheric violin, guitar and synthesizers, Sunward never abandons the most important element of a rock song, the melody.
Sunward’s style is a quirky retro-pop that is both cerebral and catchy.Sunward recently released their full-length album entitled, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Horses,”
Sunward will be rocking Club Data for Road to RedGorilla. Check out the tunes at www.myspace.com/sunward
Hendrick Bring Energetic Sound to Road to RedGorilla
Hendrick is a group of 6 unique individuals that have come together to create an energetic power-pop sound that is sure to get you grooving on your feet.
Their experimental brit-pop-rock songs combine multiple guitars, piano, bass, drums and powerful vocals and create a giant wall of sound.
With influences such as The Flaming Lips, Radiohead and Built to Spill Hendrick will appeals to all who love music.
Hendrick will bring their explosive music to the Road to Red Gorilla Stage on December 13. Listen to their tunes at www.myspace.com/hendrickmusic
The show starts a 9 p.m. Get yourself out to Club Dada to support your favorite band and discover some great new music! See ya there!
