Fruit & Flowers
Fruit & Flowers are one of the most active bands in the NYC area, and have been deemed one of “NYC’s Hardest Working Bands” by Oh My Rockness. The band embarked on its third tour of 2017 in July to Canada and the Midwest in support of Drug Tax. Fruit & Flowers’ exuberant, electric performances draw a local following. Ana Becker’s angular, expressive guitar style and Lyzi Wakefield’s gritty rhythmic backbone merge a post-punk heaviness with psychedelic warmth. Committed and charismatic front woman Caroline Yoder summons a fervent energy, surrounded by distinct, warm and refreshing three part harmonies, the bedrock of Fruit and Flowers’ sound.
The band debuted their first single and music video on Brooklyn Vegan. Watch “Out Of Touch” HERE. Their second single and video, “Subway Surfer,” premiered on She Shreds, who say, “The video gives us a peek into their stellar live shows, which are a lot more than a good-time punk rock party. FxF’s dead perfect vocal harmonies and guitar interplay clearly displays a band operating with a fully formed idea and a love for their respective instruments.” They band also shared their debut EP, Drug Tax, exclusively on TIDAL.
“Surf rock with a side of gloom, Drug Tax is the perfect record for warring with sticky subway seats (“Subway Surfer”) hanging at the beach under a black umbrella (“Dark Surf”) and just generally sweating out the summer sans AC (“Pick Fairy”).”
’“Subway Surfer” is a straight up punk stomper."
- She Shreds
“If you go to a lot of DIY-ish shows in NYC chances are you’ve seen Fruit & Flowers, one of the hardest working new bands of the moment, making super-catchy indie rock.”
- Brooklyn Vegan
“…the perfect soundtrack for slowly slinking through NYC’s July haze, while possibly spotting a UFO over the Manhattan skyline.”
“Sit Down have the audience eating out of their hands.” – Brighton’s Finest
“This feisty Brighton 2 piece bring you fuzzed up garage punk, which will kick you in the teeth. Imagine if The Yeah Yeah Yeahs had a love child with DZ Deathrays.” – Acidbox Promotions
‘Brighton’s hot new rocking two piece play the kind of steamy garage fuzz that you go to sleep thinking of every night.’ – Deadbeat Disco
Dead Naked Hippies
Gritty, pretty post-punk
“Like Estrons in a bar brawl with Blood Red Shoes, they take twisting, sharp-as-a-knife guitar lines and wield them like a weapon. A statement of intent that sounds perfectly suited to both dingy basements and sun-kissed festival main stages”- DIY
