NEW YORK CITY QUEENS
New York City Queens is a Houston based Indie/Pop band formed in the spring of 2011 around their debut album, ‘Somewhere Different, Something New.’ Blending influences that range from early pop to contemporary modern rock, NYCQ has solidified a signature sound on their sophomore release, ‘Burn Out Like Roman Candles.’ The Queens are currently booked for an east coast tour to and from their upcoming official CMJ performance.
“The Queens mash together pretty much every type of pop imaginable, from surf-pop riffage to jangly, Elliott Smith-esque folk to ’70s-retro power pop (which brings to mind The Push Kings, for me) to shimmery dreampop to head-nodding, upbeat New Wave, and heat it up ’til it all melts and intermingles and mixes, coming out a candy-colored, thoroughly great pop-rock amalgam that’s just about impossible for a pop-song fanatic like myself to resist.
Some bands take years to hit their stride — these five kids apparently only needed 10 months or so. My hat’s off to y’all.” – Jeremy Hart, Space City Rock
Tall Talk is a 3-piece rock band from College Station.
Golden Sombrero is a band from both Bryan/College Station and Houston which formed during the summer of 2012. Comprised of musicians from other area bands such as The Ex-Optimists, Pearl Light Specials, and Bachelor Police, the four players create the classic garage rock setup. The band steals the energy of 90s Merge Records alternative and throws in loud Crazy Horse tone.
