Monday: Sydney Sprague – FOMO
24 year-old Sydney Sprague is a singer/songwriter based in Phoenix, Arizona. She has been writing and performing songs for 12 years, and has explored a variety of sounds in each of her new releases. Her upcoming EP, “Bad Patchwork” is a mixed bag of recordings she made in 2018, and is inspired by a massive amount of uncertainty, awkward relationships, wasted time, and the fear of missing out. Her songs are refreshingly relatable and full of angst in the best possible way. Phoenix New Times says “her voice is quite close to Stevie Nicks at her prime, but without the edge.” Preview her song “F.O.M.O” below, if ya love it, vote to hear it again for Song of the Week at the bottom of the page.

Wednesday: Breakup Shoes – Playing With Fire
Breakup Shoes is a four-piece indie outfit based in Tempe, AZ composed of vocalist/guitarist Nick Zawisa, guitarist John MacLeod, bassist Derrick Lafforthun and drummer Matthew Witsoe. The members of Breakup Shoes began playing music together in a mega-church, but after a fallout with religiosity they started the band in late 2015. Although the music taste of its members varies from punk to hip-hop and most things in-between, Breakup Shoes has been heavily influenced by the music of icons such as The Beach Boys, The Cure and New Order, as well as contemporaries such as Mac Demarco, Modern Baseball and Turnover. “Their discography is the soundtrack of a revolting youth that’s just too stoned or lazy to do anything right now… but maybe tomorrow. Harmonious melodies alongside jovial drums keep a smile on your face while captivating you with tales of heartbreak and solitude.
