Sorority Noise
Sorority Noise
SORORITY NOISE write important songs. They go to uncomfortable places, unafraid to let the darkness in – but they’re also not shy at kicking back until the sorrow subsides. They’re songs of confusion, anger, life, death, mental health and, most importantly, hope. They’re what it means to be human.

That vulnerability has been Sorority Noise’s hallmark since they formed in 2013, but it’s never been as precise as it is on YOU’RE NOT AS ___ AS YOU THINK, their third album, set for release March 17th via Triple Crown Records. The album follows the Connecticut-based quartet’s IT KINDLY STOPPED FOR ME 7” (2016), critically acclaimed JOY, DEPARTED (2015) and debut FORGETTABLE (2014) and is the most collaborative, fully realized version of Sorority Noise to date.

Sorority Noise recorded You’re Not As ___ As You Think with producer Mike Sapone (Brand New, Taking Back Sunday) over the span of 10 days – three times longer than it took to track Joy, Departed – and this increased time allowed the band to hone the songwriting and visceral performances that have launched them onto tours with Modern Baseball, Citizen, Turnover and The Menzingers and into outlets like Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound, The Fader, Spin, AV Club and Stereogum.

Singer/guitarist Cameron Boucher, who prefers not to edit or overthink his lyrics, empties both his pen and soul on songs like “No Halo,” “Disappeared” and “A Portrait Of,” stark vignettes that find him coming to terms with the death of close friends. He’s had days, weeks and months to confront these and other emotions, and when it came time to write about them, the words spilled out.

So what you’re getting is an emotional bulldozer – an unfiltered, inward look at the last year of the band’s life that’s filled with intimate, visceral details yet remains universally relatable. But even amidst heavy subject matter, Sorority Noise want to give you a sense of resilience. “No matter what I feel, it’s going to be OK,” Boucher says. “Things are going to be tough, but it’s going to be fine in the end – and you have to keep going because you just have to. This is how it’s going to be. You’ve just got to do it.”

It’s in this way that the album’s title comes into view, and it only takes inserting a few adjectives – sad, happy, rich, poor – to realize life is all about perspective. Hardships are inevitable, but so is hope. Rather than living in the shadows, Sorority Noise have learned the only way to move past the struggle is by never stopping moving forward into the sun.

Foxx Bodies
Foxx Bodies
Foxx Bodies, a four-piece from Los Angeles, CA, in various interviews and write-ups are coined as a new, young Riot Grrrl band; and ranging stylistically from Sleater-Kinney to a 50’s Western sound, they proudly bear this identity. Witnessing their charisma live, however, it is clear that these talented musicians represent a new direction of punk/politically-driven music—a sound which is urgent, clever, energetic, and above all, important. Singer Bella Vanek’s lyrics even when humorous (she brilliantly moans “suck my cock” in the song “Foxx Bodies”) always bleed with painful truth. She commands attention in her performance and as she yells, wails or sings beautifully from the perspective of a patronized child, a “Bad Kid”, or a survivor, her message stabs like a knife. Guitarist Bailey Moses thunders a wall of powerful sound to the very front of the stage, while simultaneously playing with skillful intricacy. Matt Vanek plays bass with such tight, rhythmic skill and serves as the sound’s perfect tie. Adam Bucholz, who’s been playing drums for 15 years, compliments Bella’s singing perfectly, while also crashing into the songs with his own honed, independent sound.
