MORI
MORI
Formed in Brooklyn in the winter of 2014, four piece alternative rock band MORI is the latest and loudest iteration of lead singer & guitarist Mori Einsidler's longstanding project. Flanked by Jake Goldin on guitar, Adam Downer on bass and vocals, and Stephen Ranellone on drums, the band draws influence from indie rockers Tegan & Sara along with pop-punk / emo overlords Say Anything and Brand New, crafting melancholy pop songs dressed up in rock and roll's clothes.
Noble Kids
Noble Kids
Noble Kids is a Brooklyn-based folk rock band initially formed by Bryce Barsten and Michael Steiner. After completing their EP Kingdom in 2013, Noble Kids received press recognition from blogs like The Wild Honey Pie and YVYNYL describing their sound as "bright," "intricate", and "well-arranged". They draw their musical influences from a variety of artists and genres (Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and The National) while maintaining an honest and unique sound. Noble Kids later added Kevin Chang (guitarist), who became an instrumental member in the writing and arranging of their full-length record, and Brianna Leary (multi-instrumentalist) to complete their lineup. Noble Kids has performed all over NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, at events like SoFar Sounds and CMJ. They released their debut full-length record 'Fawn' in 2015. 'Fawn offers a wide range of grand and intimate moments, centered around themes of loneliness and companionship. "With the release of their debut LP, 'Fawn' the band shows us that there is still some subtlety and mystery left in folk rock—that there is still something to discover and obsess over." - Nooga
Polar Planet
Polar Planet
Every musical career has twists, turns and unpredictability throughout. But, when two musicians on tour with two different bands meet by accident on a party boat in Austin, TX those musical paths would take them on one serendipitous journey. For singer/song-writer Eric Paquette and keyboardist Zack Cross, it took being re-introduced a year later to recollect that hazy day at SXSW under the beaming Texas sunshine. Neither could have predicted that they would form the entity soon to be known as Polar Planet a year later and that they would be opening for Panic! At The Disco and Atlas Genius in front of 5,000 people, without even having a single song released.

"Music doesn't come alive unless you have the right architects to construct the sound. One thing that stands true throughout everyone's musical background, there is no right or wrong way to approach music", says Paquette.

With that goal in mind the two came together to create art in its purest form. Starting from Paquette's skeletons of chords, both melodies and lyrics began to emerge and flow out like a rushing waterfall. It was instant chemistry. Soon after when Monte Arnstam hopped on drums, Reed Sutherland picked up the bass guitar, and Killian Karlsson slung on his Stratocaster, Polar Planet was fully formed.

Lush synthesizers, blistering leads, and heavy synth bass are just some of the textures that resonate throughout the songs of Polar Planet. Reminiscent of such scene 90's alternative stalwarts as Third Eye Blind while channeling the indie-pop feel of both Bad Suns & Bear Hands, Polar Planet is poised to break out in 2016. Their first single will be heard soon and the ears that it hits will be gleaming with joy.
