As you may have read before in previous posts, Iʻm a college student with enough projects, reading materials, and studio work that it all seems pretty endless. Well, guess what? It isnʻt! As finals week wraps up for many students, itʻs the perfect time to celebrate with a playlist to dance to.
Since the ʻ90s, Robyn has been known for catchy pop music. Her persona has changed a bit since then, but her songs prove to be a big hit amongst those who enjoy hitting the dance floor. She will be opening for Katy Perry on June 14 at the RBC Center in Raleigh.
This isnʻt a dance song on the traditional sense, but there is an upbeat notion to it when those instruments collide. After seeing them play at Girls Rock NC, itʻs hard not to recommend them. The band will be playing the Haw River Festival on May 7.
The band just wants people to dance. Thatʻs all they care about, and it shows in a good majority of their songs. To try to say otherwise would be outrageous. The band has no upcoming tour dates — they cancelled tour dates in late March and early April due to illnesses — though we hope they will be back on the road once fully recovered, doing what they love.
Iʻll admit Iʻve been on a bit of a kick since I discovered the band a while back. Using old Southern traditions and references to the culture in their lyrics and music to form new outlooks and references is a strongpoint they use to their advantages. Heather McEntire (vocals, guitar) will be playing a solo show at Pinhook on May 20.
