Artists

Razor Braids

A big wave is coming. A wave of sound, of feeling; of arm after arm shooting up to meet the giddy noise of a live show. And the force behind it? Brooklyn’s own Razor Braids. Through soaring harmonies and driving guitars, the queer femme trio has honed a magnetic sound that combines the vulnerable self-awareness of indie rock with dynamic instrumentation anchored in a 90s alternative ethos. After the release of singles “Nashville, Again” and a cover of Weezer’s “Buddy Holly,”  Razor Braids opened up the main stage at Boston Calling 2023 — sharing a stage with The Beaches and The Foo Fighters — and toured through the Midwest, South, and East Coast as headliners and opening for The Worriers. The band has brought their energetic stage presence to SXSW as official artists as well as Music Hall of Williamsburg, Sultan Room, and Elsewhere as direct support for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Jigsaw Youth and Anna Shoemaker, respectively. In addition to multiple features on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlists, Razor Braids’ music has been warmly received by Blogothque, BrooklynVegan, NME, SiriusXMU, WFMU, Philthy Mag, Creem, Analogue Trash, The Boston Globe, and more. In 2024, the band plans to tour their upcoming sophomore album, Big Wave, expanding on their singular balance of tightly layered vocals, heavy riffs and reflective lyrics with more boldness and sense of purpose than ever before.

Strawberry Launch

Strawberry Launch is a female-fronted, indie-psychedelic-pop group from New York, NY formed in late 2018. With inspiration stemming from bands like Crumb, Khruangbin, Pinegrove (and even a little Harry Styles), their catchy tunes are created out of funky guitar lines and late nights in Manhattan together. Riiza, Tilly, Mat, Abby, and Benjy make songs you can dance to or cry to. You can find them playing gigs in the LES decked out in body glitter. Follow them on social media to stay updated on shows and music. Check out their debut EP, "Strawberry Launch", released 8/6!

Rlyblonde

After years of being the go-to creative director, photographer, and videographer for NYC’s favorite indie music acts, Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist “rlyblonde” finally took center stage in 2023 with her musical debut, “Fantasy.” Building on years of self-portraiture exploring themes of identity, heartbreak, and classic feminine tropes, rlyblonde’s musical catalog is punchy and wholly authentic–complete with a fully self-produced & self-directed visual world to accompany. Sonically, rlyblonde keeps listeners on their feet by genre-bending between edgy alt-rock and tender indie-pop, all while maintaining her signature sense of humor.
