Shy Husky

Simultaneously nostalgic and fresh, Shy Husky’s music serves as an update to the 90’s alt-rock they grew up on. Big, distorted guitars and pounding drums blend seamlessly with modern clean, pop-infused vocals to create a new style that lands at the intersection of emo, pop punk, and modern alt-rock. On their 2023 self-titled EP, produced by Matt Appleton (The Used, Atreyu, The Ataris), they find their sound, creating a solid debut that showcases their precise songwriting while maintaining the edge and energy they bring to their live shows. Based in the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire, Shy Husky is a staple of their local music scene and has roots growing throughout New England.



They may not be pro athletes, but philly DIY rockers Rugby still tackle genre-bending sounds with grace. Audrey Lee* and Brooklyn Fellner weave colorful chords with head-splitting noise, while Autumn Kitabjian (bass) and Sam Beliveau* (drums) lay down rhythms that are at once complex and danceable. A little gazey, a little punk, and dripping with DIY charm, Rugby builds textured walls of sound that’ll make you want to break sh!t and then call your mom afterwards. Since forming in fall of 2023 they have been crafting and refining their debut EP, slated to be released later this year.


Fleeting Colours

Fleeting Colours is a Canadian Dream Pop outfit from Montreal, Canada. The band was formed in November of 2022 by university students Pablo Sabbagh, Seamus Hickey, and Tom Sedgwick. Since January of 2024, the three have been joined by drummer Johann Mendoza for their live set. Inspired by bands including Sonic Youth, Slowdive, and Snail Mail, their music fuses the jangly guitars, lush reverb tones, and soft vocals of a shoegaze band with the driving rhythms of an indie rock act. The group has slowly worked its way into the Montreal indie & DIY scene playing concerts in many Montreal venues with bands from across Canada, while also being featured on bills at underground house shows. The group has recently started to land larger gigs with other rising dream pop acts such as Brooklyn-based Laveda. After more than a year of playing together, the trio released their first two singles in early 2024. Out of Days and Sling were recorded at Holy Mountain Sound in Montreal, Canada, and engineered by Jeff Zeigler [The War On Drugs, Kurt Vile, Knifeplay] in Philadelphia, PA.
