Monday: Fairy Bones – I’m Fine
After being named “Best Local Band” of 2015 by Phoenix New Times, the group of colorful misfits has been lighting up the stage as support for KONGOS, St Lucia, Mother Mother, Marcy Playground, Fuel, Alien Ant Farm, and Kyle Gass Band. Paste declared Fairy Bones a “four-piece art/glam/rock monster” while praising lead singer Chelsey Louise’s “incomparable pipes,” which they noted, “Few rock voices today can compare, of any gender.”
Imagine epic, dramatic alternative-pop songs sent out to the back rows of a stadium by a charismatic force of nature who could more than hold her own against whatever Florence Welch could throw her way, sharing space on a stunning debut with songs that filter lofty art-rock sensibilities through the reckless abandon of punk.
That was “Dramabot,” the debut album with which Fairy Bones confirmed their standing on the front ranks of the Phoenix music scene. Together with Bob Hoag (The Format, Scary Kids Scaring Kids), tucked away at the infamous Flying Blanket Studio, Fairy Bones managed to craft an album that surpassed all of their wildest expectations.
They are now coming back into the proverbial spotlight with the release of their single “No One Can Suffer Like I Can” and giving fans a taste of what to expect in 2018 with their sophomore album, “0% Fun.” Check out Fairy Bones music video for “I’m Fine” below and follow em on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Wednesday: Bogan Via – Videos
Bogan Via is Bret Bender and Madeleine Miller. MADLY is the band’s second extended play album and it further develops their unique synth-pop sound.
MADLY was then recorded between 2013 and 2014 over two continents at the Red Bull Studios in Copenhagen and in their hometown of Los Angeles. Mixed in New York, the band co-produced the record with Le Chev (Fisherspooner, Frankie Rose, Lemonade).
Bogan Via has made a quite a mark on the scene, quickly playing packed shows including a European tour and festival appearances at: SXSW, Culture Collide, Folsom Street Fair, Phoenix Pride, Insomnia, San Diego Music Thing, Summer Ends, & Viva Phx. Bogan Via’s ability to win over fans with their unique sound has already earned them opening spots for the likes of: Phantogram, Little Dragon, Halsey, Todd Terje, Ladyhawke, Glass Animals, Twin Shadow, Darwin Deez, Austra, Yacht, Betty Who, and many more, as well as remixes by: Geographer, Miniature Tigers, Database, Micon, & Terminal 11.
For now, Bogan Via’s graceful and danceable indie rock is still under the radar, but they are quickly rising to the surface, bringing their melodies and pulsating beats with them. Over the past few years, Bogan Via’s music has been featured on every blog from EDM to Consequence of Sound. With overwhelming responses to first listens of the record, this is the year that Bogan Via will start to make a splash. You can catch Bogan Via on Facebook, Twitter, Spotify and Soundcloud.
