Dances
Dances
Trevor Vaz (vocals/guitar) and Jeremy Blackman (bass/vocals) bartend in Brooklyn; Matt Gaffney (drums) teaches music in the Bronx. All three are native New Yorkers. Together they play in Dances: a moody, minimal, colorful cross section of manic punk and lazy, romantic pop. They back their rich vocal harmonies with noisy guitars and big beats. "Big beats are the best. Get high all the time." (Peep Show)

Trevor's songwriting is predominantly autobiographical, lending even his loudest, fastest songs a certain tenderness. Having been born into -- and subsequently estranged from -- a large Catholic, Indian family, he spent his teen years alone in an apartment downtown. That was where and when he started writing music. He's been recently diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Trevor and Jeremy both studied at Columbia, but only met afterward under seedier circumstances. Before committing himself to music, Jeremy dabbled in the egoistic caverns of Hollywood. Matt's played in several other notable bands including Porches and Lost Boy?. Life brought the three of them together, and there's some power there.
Sic Tic
Sic Tic
Sic Tic is a three-piece, Brooklyn-based psych-grunge band. Frank Rathbone, John Swanson, and Jenna Nelson. Fat beats, gnarly riffs and layered vocal harmonies. They have an EP out on GP Stripes, released May 2016, with a forthcoming single to be released on Time Castle and a follow-up EP on GP Stripes coming in early 2018.
