Pity Sex

Ann Arbor’s Pity Sex built the world of White Hot Moon, their second album, inch-by-inch. The group, formed in 2011 by childhood friends and lifelong collaborators Sean St. Charles (co-lyricist/drums) and Brennan Greaves (vocals/guitar), came together explicitly to try its hand at writing pop songs. St. Charles and Greaves were putting their hardcore band to rest, enlisting Britty Drake (co-lyricist/vocals/guitar) and Brandan Pierce (bass) to round out Pity Sex’s line-up. Now, the band is using the foundation of 2013’s celebrated Feast of Love as the framework for something bigger, stronger, and altogether more monumental. Coming off of tours with Ceremony, Eskimeaux, and Colleen Green—including a run in Australia—the band dove into the studio with Feast of Love producer Will Yip to harness that momentum into an album to showcase Pity Sex’s growth. And if White Hot Moon wears its ambition on its sleeve, that’s by design: the band looked to wide-screen albums by Yo La Tengo and Sonic Youth for inspiration in finding a bigger sound. That shows: Drake and Greaves spin huge webs of sound, anchored in shoegaze but branching off in a dozen directions, from fuzzed-out power-pop (“Bonhomie”) to shimmering balladry (“Dandelion”) and back again, while St. Charles and Pierce lock into step subtly counterintuitive rhythms and floor-shaking low-end.

Eugene Quellwrite fuzz-driven sing-a-longs. Eugene Quell is the moniker of Tobias Hayes, the London-based musician known for his work in the bands Meet Me In St. Louis and Shoes & Socks Off

Quell have released three EPs and one single, and played a whole bunch of places, to a whole bunch of people.

O Captain

Sheffield Emo Pop band O Captain are signed to Alya Records.

Sounding like a gritty interbreeding of shoegaze and emo, O Captain’s latest release Within And Without creates the atmosphere of an autumn drive through the city.

O Captain have been described as one of the best acts in Sheffield by BBC Introducing, and have gained their reputation through emotional live performances and effortlessly modernising the traditional emo pop sound. With the recent emergence of grunge and shoegaze, O Captain bring a welcome new style to the genre with their polished yet gravelly tones, and haunting vocals encrusted with angst ridden grit.
