The Brevet
The Brevet
One listen and it’s immediately clear that The Brevet have undergone a dramatic evolution on their explosive, ambitious new album, LEGS. Synthesizing the raucous energy of their live show with sonic precision of their extensive studio history, the collection is the California five-piece’ s most deeply personal and lyrically sophisticated yet, tackling perception and identity in the digital age with both subtle nuance and blunt force. The songs remain as cinematic as ever, full of rousing choruses and sing-along hooks, but they carry more weight here, propelled inexorably forward by thunderous percussion and blazing electric guitars that blend rock and roll snarl with R&B swagger.
The Brevet’s roots stretch back to college, when frontman Aric Chase Damm first began writing scores for student films and discovered he had a knack for crafting the kind of evocative music that yields unforgettable on-screen moments. Those early songs led to a licensing deal, and tracks from the band’s two independent albums (2013’s Battle of the Heart and 2017’s American Novel) would go on to be featured in a wide variety of films and television shows in addition to racking up more than nine million streams on Spotify.
With all of The Brevet’s success on-screen and online, the group—Damm, drummer David Aguiar, guitarist John Kingsley, keyboardist Greg Burroughs, and bassist Julian Johnson—was more than ready to get out of the studio and onto the stage. Over the course of the last year, they hit the road for the most intense touring of their career, performing a slew of headline shows alongside support dates with Magic Giant and festival appearances from BottleRock to Firefly.
Recorded at the band’s own studio in their native Orange County, California, LEGS insists on a relentless optimism, a defiant belief in the power of positivity in the face of darkness and doubt. The album’s title actually stands for “Like Every Great Story,” and the record indeed contains all the elements of any memorable tale: struggle and success, tension and release, conflict and resolution. Every great story has a hero, after all, and heroes never give up, even when the going gets tough. That’s what The Brevet is all about.
My Body Sings Electric
My Body Sings Electric’s music resonates with a sense of playfulness and lust for life. When you meet them in person, it’s easy to see why. Call their music indie. Call it pop. Call it what you will. But when you connect with the music from this band of love-able misfits, you’ll feel as if you just met your five new best friends.

Pop-sensibility can be a taboo in the indie world, but MBSE does not leave you wanting more. With introspective lyrics, danceable rhythms intricate instrumental work and dynamic live shows, they’ve crafted a fresh, energetic take on indie, pop and alternative rock.
Modern Suspects
Modern Suspects
"Music is the one viable vehicle for us to do something important with our lives" - that's the realization Colorado's Modern Suspects arrived at with the formation of the band. Says bassist Tyler Frees: "we started creating with the idea that music is an all or nothing venture."
Frustrated with the status quo, the trio began to navigate the give and take of pop sensibility and alternative flavoring. The result was a unique yet relatable sound affectionately referred to as "poptnernative." Combining the best elements of modern technology without sacrificing timely catchiness, they sought transparency and hope through songwriting.
The band seeks to inspire, connect, and unite with listeners through the journey of music. They released their latest single "Just Watch Me" on March 29th, 2016.
