Crowd The Airwaves, Those Manic Seas, Plastiq Passion

Hailing from the Outer Boroughs of New York City, the melodic punk-rock power trio brings a fiery, take-no-prisoners mixture of classic rock, punk, glam, and modern alternative grit, injecting fresh blood into an already-diverse scene. Chunky, guitar-driven riffs and melodies complement radio-ready vocal stylings while colliding into a hard-hitting rhythm section. If Crowd the Airwaves were a Whiskey Sour, the whiskey would be the raw, unabashed power of The Runaways; the sour mix, a healthy dose of Cities-era Anberlin; the ice as the cool rush of the Foo Fighters; and garnished with a lime of the catchy pop-rock of Fleetwood Mac.
