Oh, Malô

Recently named one of Improper Bostonian's bands to watch, Oh, Malô (oh-muh-LOW) presents colorful soundscapes through their eclecticism and dynamic arrangements. Delicate vocal melodies blend with intertwining ambient guitars, all driven by forceful drums. Influenced by bands such as Bombay Bicycle Club, Radiohead, Local Natives, Daughter, and Jeff Buckley, Oh, Malô creates an unpredictable blend of timbres and arrangements. Founded in 2014, this band of Berklee students wrote their debut LP in just three months and spent that summer recording and perfecting their songs. They subsequently released three color-themed EPs, each representing the mental and emotional stages after a breakup. The six songs from these EPs will be combined with six unreleased tracks to complete the LP, available in September 2015.

Based out of Boston, I/O is a six-piece post-rock band that formed at Berklee in the fall of 2012. 

Aüva is a Boston-based group that writes and performs surfy, dreamy pop music. Jake LeVine, Jack Markwordt, Miette Hope, and Michael Piccoli met at Berklee, where they continue to study music. Their EP, Light Years, was released on April 25, 2015, and they have a full-length album due to be released in the winter of 2015.

Susie Brown and Scot Sax

Suzie Brown is a cardiologist turned singer-songwriter with a talent for unforgettable melodies and evocative lyrics. After writing her first song five years ago, she has been named a finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song contest and a semifinalist in the International Songwriting Competition, among other accolades, and her music has been featured at Starbucks, the Gap, and Anthropologie. Brown is joined by Grammy Award–winning multi-instrumentalist Scot Sax. The duo have just finished an album together, due out in September.

Singer-songwriter Jesse Terry uses his music to tell tales of travel, homecoming, sorrow, and redemption. His sound is fresh and melodic, and his music reflects a variety of influences from Nashville to Laurel Canyon. Terry's songs would fit on a playlist with the likes of Josh Ritter, Jackson Browne, Ryan Adams, and Neil Young. He has shared the stage with Gregory Alan Isakov, Bear's Den, and Guster, and was recently included on Birdstone Records' Independent Celebration, Vol. 1 along with songs from Ben Taylor, Rachael Yamagata, and Grant-Lee Phillips.

Based in Ottawa, Ontario, Kalle Mattson is a singer-songwriter. His most recent album, Someday, the Moon Will Be Gold, was nominated for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize and was released with tours of Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe.

Big Scary

Tom Iansek and Jo Syme emerged on Melbourne, Australia’s music scene as Big Scary in 2006 with a recognizable chemistry, genre-defying spirit, and a less-is-more approach to songwriting. Between Iansek’s evocative falsetto, Syme’s economic drumming, and their commitment to self-sustained production, Big Scary’s music is the product of two minds in unison. Both approach songwriting with understated ambition, drawing inspiration from the living rooms of suburbia to the elements of Mother Nature herself. The result is a rich, diverse catalogue of songs and style. Fuzzy garage rock sits effortlessly beside pocket-orchestrated ballads, and idyllic melodies maneuver through piano-led landscapes as unfussy textures are unseated by good old-fashioned rock.

$12 in advance / $15 day of show

The Wind and the Wave

Last year, the Wind and the Wave (Dwight Baker and Patricia Lynn) released their debut album, From the Wreckage, with RCA Records. The album glows with a rootsy golden tone that encompasses everything from indie folk to alternative to blues rock to Southern psychedelia. The raucous first single, “With Your Two Hands,” sounds like it could have been written during an impromptu back-porch jam session. Baker and Lynn have just released their second single, “It’s a Longer Road to California than I Thought.”

Raised in New York, folk singer-songwriter Brian Dunne has won a lot of attention and praise with his sharp lyrical prowess and country-influenced vocals. Dunne has played in the U.S. folk scene far and wide and cites influences such as Bob Dylan, the Band, and Bruce Springsteen. One can hear his roots winding through the sound and style of his songwriting and performing. After graduating from Berklee in 2011, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, where he currently resides. Following up 2012's The Brooklyn Bridge EP, which received praise from John Mayer, among others, Dunne released his first full-length record, Songs From the Hive, in February 2015.
