Breaking And Entering’s Five To Watch: October 2016
Moovalya (Phoenix, AZ)
Here’s a band with a take-no-prisoners attitude and a sound to match it. With their unique blend of melodic punk, Moovalya are making a name for themselves within the Phoenix music scene. With a sound that combines elements of bands like Sum 41 and a young AFI, punk fans everywhere can relate to a component of Moovalya’s sound, and you’ll hear that on their track “Kings” below:
Steven Cooper (Kansas City, MO)
To be very blunt about it, Steven Cooper doesn’t look like a rapper. In fact, on paper, almost nothing would suggest that he is a force to be reckoned with on the microphone. One listen, however, and you’ll hear that not only can Cooper flow, but he may be able to outrap your favorite emcee if given the chance. Be prepared to have your mind blown, and get ready to Tango with Steven Cooper below:
Rhea Raj (Princeton, NJ)
Rhea Raj is a multi-faceted talent, as a singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress based out of the New York City area. Her music career is her main focus, though, especially after being featured in American Idol’s final season. With a catchy pop sound, and a voice to compliment it well, Rhea has built a following for herself with the additional exposure. One listen to her feature on “Kaleidoscope” below, and you’ll be sold.
Face The King (Amityville, NY)
If you’re a fan of bands like Young The Giant, The Killers, and Imagine Dragons, we might have just found something else that you’ll love. New York natives Face The King have a well polished, anthem-like quality to their music, and the intensity that they put into their music shines on their records. The band has toured the country, and is currently in production of their debut album. With their sound, they almost appear destined for alt-rock stardom. Listen to “You Me And The Sound” below to hear for yourself:
The Upset Victory (Cincinnati, OH)
Cincinatti natives The Upset Victory are pure power pop, and sound like they are on a fast track to stardom as soon as you hear them. With the ever-so-catchy single “Don’t Give Up The Night”, the band channels indie, pop, and alternative, all within one track (think Fall Out Boy, but in more recent years). The single is part of The Upset Victory’s yet-to-be-titled LP, which should be due out soon. It doesn’t sound far fetched to believe that this band will someday play major music festivals, not in a main featured time slot, but as a headliner. Get your first glimpse of The Upset Victory below:
