The Click Five: Four of the five original members attended Berklee and participated in many other rock bands before coming together to form the Click, which later became the Click Five. While the Click Five may be “old souls,” there’s a brand-new member: 21-year-old singer/guitarist Kyle Patrick, who, like the rest of the band, attended Berklee. Their second album Modern Minds and Pastimes features the single “Jenny,” which meshes musical buoyancy with melancholy sentiment.
Beautiful Lies: Boston-based alternative pop-rock band with an eclectic sound and performance.
