PODCAST: Model Cars
Dorm Sessions 6, the latest release from Berklee's student-run label, Heavy Rotation Records, features the original songs of nine innovative student bands, including the melodic rock of Model Cars.
Pianist/violinist Claudio Olachea began putting together the band in 2006 by looking for bandmates who would help him create intelligent indie rock with strong grooves, melodies, and vocal harmonies. His quest led him to his three talented bandmates: guitarist Matt Berger, bassist Mike day, and drummer Kevin Lynch.
"Don't Go Run Away" is one of two tracks Model Cars recorded for Dorm Sessions 6. The album features a wide range of styles, from funk and hip-hop to rock and folk.
Hear the bands perform live at the CD release party at the Berklee Performance Center on February 4.
