ChameleonsVox
ChameleonsVox
"ChameleonsVox is the continuation of The Chameleons (UK), arguably the most widely influential guitar band ever to come out of Manchester England. ChameleonsVox features Chameleons vocalist, bassist and principle composer Mark Burgess, long time collaborators Yves Altana on drums and guitarists Neil Dwerryhouse and Chris Oliver. Over the last five years the band has performed sold out shows across Europe and the United States. This coming spring the band will perform a final, farewell tour of Europe before traveling to the United States to perform The Chameleons' debut album 'Script of the Bridge' on an extensive final tour there. This, however, is not the end of ChameleonsVox only and end to extensive touring."

ChameleonsVox are: Mark Burgess - Bass Guitar/Vocals Neil Dwerryhouse - Guitar Chris Oliver - Guitar Yves Altana - Drums
Soft Kill
Soft Kill
Soft Kill's introduction to the world was 2011's "An Open Door" and since then, despite many ups and downs and false starts, the band has issued several limited releases and played sporadic yet memorable shows. 2014 marks their return with the reissue of their debut and a new album of guitar-driven doom & gloom that borrows from projects like Asylum Party, For Against and Chameleons UK.
DRAA
"In the theme of not releasing albums, don't bother trying to look up Draa's music online. You'll just find yourself staring at a river in Morocco from which the band's name derives (nobody in the band really seems to know why). Save for a mostly sparse Facebook page, Draa has no web trail and, more importantly, no music to stream or download. The group released a two-song live cassette in a pitifully small run of 25 tapes to coincide with a show in Flagstaff not long ago. That being the exception, the band seems to be nearly anthrophobic about its music.

It may seem strange within the confines of the digital age that a band can exist without haphazardly throwing out stocking-stuffer songs all over the Internet, yet Draa seems to be doing things the old-fashioned way, which means bringing its live performance game hard and letting the chips fall where they may. Over the course of the first and only year of its existence, Draa has made a stir playing university parties and events around Tempe and downtown Phoenix, leading to the band climbing onto larger bills with the likes of Broken Water, Soft Kill, Drab Majesty, Holy Drug Couple, and Wax Idols.

For a younger band to be gaining so much attention this quickly based solely on the merit of live performance and word of mouth is virtually unheard of in 2015 and speaks volumes to the level of musicianship and power these individuals are capable of achieving.

In a live setting, the band antes up with the best of them when it comes to creating an atmosphere. Their pedal-driven dream-pop trances are woven together with precise interludes of noise and effects freakouts that leave audiences bewildered as to what exactly is going on. Yet the madness is always reeled back to a cohesive structure before the ambient placeholders begin to border on over-indulgence." - Roger Calamaio, Phoenix New Times
