Get To Know:
Chicago-based collective, Worry Club isn’t your average bedroom pop band. Chase Walsh is the brains behind the music, playing every instrument, writing every lyric, and singing every line. He’s in charge of creating a sound to call their own: a somewhat sentimental, 90s-tinged, slacker rhythm and tone with somber guitar and understated vocals. Worry Club takes a unique approach to bedroom pop, incorporating aspects of midwest emo with vulnerable lyricism. Recently, they caught the attention of Billie Eilish after a recent addition to the Spotify playlist, Lorem. Worry Club is set to hit the road this Spring in support of Grayscale on their North American tour.

Get To Know:
It’s pretty hard to pinpoint the Melbourne-based, worldwide-beloved, genre-fluid collective, Hiatus Kaiyote. Part jazz, soul, R&B, funk, and pop, Nai Palm (guitar, vox), Paul Bender (bass), Simon Mavin (keys), and Perrin Moss (drums) debuted in 2012 with LP Tawk Tomahawk, making fans of Erykah Badu, Questlove, and Prince, and embraced by tastemakers like Gilles Peterson and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Their first R&B Grammy nomination, for “Nakamarra,” was followed by another for “Breathing Underwater,” from their second LP, 2015’s Choose Your Weapon. They’ve been sampled on songs by The Carters (Beyonce + Jay-Z), Kendrick Lamar, Anderson.Paak, Chance The Rapper, and Drake, with whom Nai Palm collaborated on his Scorpion album.
With a new record out titled Mood Valiant, the band really dug into expanding their orchestrations, grooves, and multi-cultural inspirations, all while laced with Nai Palm’s unmistakable voice and guitar playing and Paul Bender’s constant bass grooves and constant tempo and time signature switches.
