The Cotones / Lithic
The Cotones are a Boston, Massachusetts–based indie/alternative rock group. The band has played in and around the Boston area and up and down the East Coast. Influenced by artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Father John Misty, Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood, and David Bowie, the Cotones strive to write genuine songs that express their worldview while being able to entertain and catch the attention of listeners. The band puts on an energetic, engaging, and diverse live show, with lyrics that span politics, mental health, love, hate, and the human condition. Although the band members try not to take themselves too seriously, they take their music very seriously. The band’s new anti-Trump single, “The Party’s Over,” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major platforms.
Lithic is just four guys with a love for big hooks, memorable riffs, and expensive overdrive pedals. They have found a home in Boston for their genre-bending sound, which has been described by fans as “alternative psychedelic grunge.” The band plans to move to Los Angeles once its members graduate from Berklee College of Music at the end of this semester. Lithic pushes the envelope, fuses genres, and hopes to open the minds of those who listen.
