Indie Pop (Knoxville, Tenn.)
The fact that Shortwave Society has emerged from the Knoxville scene shouldn’t come as too big a surprise, given the rise of Superdrag and the extended V-Roys family. But clearly Shortwave Society is drinking from a decidedly different creative well. with orchestral Baroque Indie Pop that references the ornate arrangements of The Beatles and 10CC as well as the cinematic vision of Danny Elfman. Shortwave Society makes intimate epics that are complex, compelling and infinitely engaging.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: 10CC’s Original Soundtrack produced by Todd Rundgren in his peacock feathers-for-mascara period, as a Sgt. Pepper homage. (Brian Baker, CityBeat)
