If you aren't familiar with the "Song Blender", basically we dissect a song or an artist's sound. Picking out the influences, or ingredients to stay consisten with the whole "blender" bit, that make up that band's or song's sound.
This time around, it's an incredible band from Bowling Green, Kentucky. One of my favorite bands on the planet. The timing to feature this band is perfect because they ARE a band to watch in 2013. I recently spoke with one of the vocalist, the spunky and fiesty Alex Kandel. She mentioned the band has signed with new management & business peeps AND have been upstreamed to parent record label RCA Records. Translation? They're about to blow up. Their second album is in the works and I can NOT wait to hear it.
Anyway, let's begin the blending.....shall we?!
First, we throw in a heaping helping of White Stripes.
Next, with Alex's vocals being so predominant, we must add The Runaways
Then, a dash of The Pixies
Lastly, it would simply be criminal to NOT add one of the biggest influences on Sleeper Agent and that's their fellow Bowling Green pals, Cage The Elephant
NOW.....we hit puree.........and..........we get this........
