This weeks article is on a young new Murfreesboro based band "Serenity & the Blush" who are all sophomores in high school. They're a southern indie rock band standing out with their overdriven guitar tones and Skylar Smith's unique vocals that resemble a Cage the Elephant style tone. The 4 piece consists of Skylar Smith on guitar and vocals, Jackson Latham on bass, Ben Beauchene on guitar, and Edge Carroll on drums. They've just put out their first, home-recorded EP "Youthful Development" on November 11th and have been playing shows in support of the 4 song release.
The frontman talks about the bond him and Jackson Latham had over local Nashville music in eighth grade, and how they've been playing/finding members ever since. Finding the other half through high school and mutual friends, the band has been playing some shows and have even cooler ones coming down the pipe like with another Wolfsbane writer's band (Hayden Warren) Freshman Year. Also starting off 2017 the guys are ripping their Nashville debut with Kayak Jones and Hot Mulligan at the Black Cat Ballroom January 4th. Catch them at a show and witness the jams of some fellow people who can't buy lottery tickets like myself. Here's their EP below, as well as their social media links!
