Spotlight On: Alpine

Melbourne-based band Alpine has been tiding their native country as well as making a splash in the States with their infectious, dreamy electro-pop music. The sextet is fronted by female vocalists Phoebe Baker and Lou James, and composed of Christian O’Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keyboard) and Phil Tucker (drums).

Alpine dropped their debut album, A is for Alpine, last May, charming their listeners with crisp, fresh beats, haunting vocals and a spoonful of melodic tidbits. They've played SXSW for the past two years and have been stamping their sound touring both the U.S. and Australia. They swung by the Sonicbids headquarters in Boston to serenade us with a stripped down office gig, and we caught up with front woman Lou James to chat about the band’s career and how they got to where they are today.

Watch: PHOX Performs 'Slow Motion' at Sonicbids Office Gig

Meet soulful, super friendly Sonicbids band: PHOX. The sextet has been on a whirlwind North American tour and will soon be taking their infectious brand of indie folk across the pond to perform at Liverpool Sound City and The Great Escape. But before they do, we were lucky enough to get an intimate serenade here at Sonicbids HQ. Watch them perform their new single "Slow Motion," and we dare you not to fall in love with these Midwestern popsters.

Spotlight On: Kristy Lee

11 years ago, Kristy Lee traveled down to Pensacola, Florida, with just her guitar for a small Memorial Day weekend festival. To her surprise, her unadvertised performance drew over 800 fans, and Kristy was subsequently invited to host Unleashed Music Festival every year from then on. Lately, that number has grown to nearly 10,000 fans for what she considers to be her "biggest week of the year."
