Thank You, I'm Sorry

Anxiety is the first word sung on Thank You, I'm Sorry's first album. Back then it was just vocalist Lleen Dow's (they/them) voice and an acoustic, but three years and a full band, another album and several heart-rending singles later it's still on their mind. Anxiety never really goes away, but you can learn to cope and how to enjoy everything else. The respites, the joy, the excitement when anxiety takes a backseat. Thank You, I'm Sorry is growing, learning, indulging, experimenting and figuring it out. Together. Thank You, I'm Sorry came together as a band to flesh out quiet, lonely songs Lleen built on their own, and they haven't stopped exploring and expanding their sound since. Bee Schreiner's (they/them) basslines effortlessly pull songs forward, knowing just when to nudge the band to avoid getting caught in an anxiety spiral. The drums from Sage Livergood (they/them) bring everything together, constantly keeping pace while poking out into fills that feel like they could shatter apart at any moment, yet always finding their way back. Abe Anderson’s (he/him) and Lleen's guitar lines intertwine and bounce, refusing to sit still anywhere long enough to get bored. Thank You, I'm Sorry find ways to piece together parts that feel impossible to pin down or coalesce, making something beautiful and catchy that will bounce around your head for weeks.

Wetsuit

Wetsuit is a Brooklyn-based band fronted by songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Allison Becker with guitarist Anders Nils, bassist Paul DeSilva, and drummer Tess Kramer. Wetsuit makes "delightfully wonky indie rock" (Post-Trash) that "sounds like Regina Spektor fronting Beach House" (The Big Takeover).
Their debut album "Sugar, I'm Tired" was released in August 2023 by Substitute Scene Records. The band is currently working on their 2nd record with Asheville-based producer, Alex Farrar (Indigo de Souza, Wednesday, Squirrel Flower).
