Born Cages
Born Cages
New York's alt-rock outfit Born Cages thrives on creatively seeking freedom, whether it's in the studio or on stage. There's no rulebook or template, simply unhindered art in its purest form when Vlad Holiday [lead vocals/guitar], Amanda Carl [keyboards/backing vocals], Matt Maroulakos [bass guitar], and Dave Tantao [drums] converge. The band members each made their own imprint on the fertile New York scene before forming in 2011. Within their first year together, the band's self-released online demos stirred a major buzz - with NYC's most prominent rock radio station Q104.3FM giving them frequent airtime, and by sharing the stage with Guns N' Roses for two sold out U.S. shows. "The band name is a symbol for discontentment," reveals Vlad. "It's being unsatisfied with what you're given, but actually doing something about it." Born Cages' shared boundless mentality (a delicate alchemy of raw guitars and shimmering electronics) powers The Sidelines EP, their debut release for Razor & Tie.
NGHBRS
NGHBRS
Coined "Long Island's purveyors of gripping and soulful rock,' by tastemakers at All Things Go, NGHBRS, debut full-length, Twenty One Rooms, has critics and fans alike buzzing about the release. The Examiner.com raves "NGHBRS take everything that is good and holy about rock and roll, namely the rocking and rolling, and approach the time-tested formula in an experimental yet no-frills manner." Most recently, NGHBRS' video for Hold Up Girl was coined "the most clever DIY music video since OK GO," by The Wall Street Journal and even landed the band a feature in USA Today.
Goodnight Lights
Goodnight Lights
Formed in the summer of 2007, Goodnight Lights is a Philadelphia-based quintet including: Michael Schraeger (guitar and vocals), Faith Charlton (keyboard and vocals), Ian Charlton (guitar and vocals), Jonah Delso (bass and vocals), and Michael Ziegler (drums). The band’s diverse, yet cohesive sound draws wide comparisons to many of the band's influences, old and new alike.

Goodnight Lights recently released their third full-length entitled As Far As The Moon. All of their releases can be found at http://www.goodnight-lights.com.

"Goodnight Lights continue to sharpen its musical voice with well crafted songwriting, sparkling harmonies, smart melodies and excellent guitar playing..." –Bruce Warren, WXPN & The Key Music Blog

"Remind me a bit of The Arcade Fire... with the backup/gang choruses/shouts... I have a difficult time pinning down the sound (that’s a good thing)." –Matthew Berlyant, NYC rock magazine, "The Big Takeover"

"Some of my favorite bands were finally smashed together in one. Perhaps the feeling of anticipation was loaded in a familiar sound with a twist... I couldn't put my finger directly on it, but I knew I liked it. The influences of this band are inadvertently represented in the tracks on the album. Some of those influences include The Velvet Underground, The Pixies, The Stooges, Radiohead and The Arcade Fire. Goodnight Lights concocts a sound that channels these influences in a versatile yet original way. Innovative." –Jennifer Koch, Origivation Magazine
