    Movements

    Rock

    Music and emotion share a timeless physiological, psychological, and spiritual bond. A chord, a melody, or a lyric can lift spirits and inspire. Movements achieve that sort of reaction on their full-length debut, Feel Something [Fearless Records]. Threading together spacey guitars, evocative and introspective lyricism, ponderous spoken word, and tight songcraft, the Southern California quartet—Patrick Miranda [vocals], Ira George [guitar], Spencer York [drums], and Austin Cressey [bass]—immediately connect by opening up. That musical empathy quietly launched Movements on an upward trajectory in 2015. Formed by longtime friends, the group landed a deal with Fearless Records after just one local gig. Produced by Will Yip [Tigers Jaw, Title Fight, Turnover, Citizen], their debut EP, Outgrown Things, became a fan favorite. Acclaimed by the likes of Alternative Press and New Noise Magazine, songs like “Nineteen” and “Kept” each respectively amassed over 800K Spotify streams and counting as they have toured nonstop.   Along the way, the boys started working on what would become Feel Something before returning to the studio with Yip in February 2017. In the sessions, their signature style crystallized and coalesced. Ultimately, Movements bring emotion to life in each note.

  • Can't Swim

    Can't Swim

    Pop

    Based out of Keansburg New Jersey, Can't Swim was founded by singer Chris LoPorto in the spring of 2015. After spending most of his life playing drums in various bands, Chris decided to step in to song writing. The songs were contagious from the start and grabbed the attention of his good friends Mike Sanchez, Danny Rico, and Greg McDevitt.  

    Before even playing their first show, the band announced their signing to Pure Noise Records in December of 2015 and released their debut EP, "DEATH DESERVES A NAME" on February 24, 2016. They spent all of 2016 touring with bands such as; Four Year Strong, Hit the Lights, Aaron West & The Roaring Twenties, Moose Blood, Boston Manor, Set Your Goals, and Valencia. 

    When it came time to begin recording their first full length, "FAIL YOU AGAIN" they called upon their own drummer Danny Rico (who produced DDAN) to engineer and produce this as well. Once the project was complete, they found that the songs required a much more full sounding live performance and their longtime friend and New Jersey native Andrea Morgan was a perfect addition to the band. Danny moved to third guitar/vocals and Andrea took his place on the drums. 

  • Super Whatevr

    Super Whatevr

    Pop Punk

    Super Whatevr is the aftermath of a series of wrong turns and bad decisions made by Skyler McKee. These mistakes have led Skyler to write upbeat tunes about his disgruntled daily life, creating a cornucopia of happy misery; a state of blissful despair. Their inverted-insignia ‘happy tunes for sappy dudes’ pokes fun at the current idealism of pop culture, when in actuality the further you dig into the material, the more gritty realness you encounter from the melancholy brainchild known as Super Whatevr.

    "Good luck, good luck to you love."

    Super Whatevr worked with producer/engineer Jon Joseph (Borns, Gungor) on the new single "Good Luck."

    Super Whatevr is Skyler McKee, Thomas Waale, and Luke Mensink.
