THE HOOT HOOTS/ BULLETS OR BALLOONS / DEM EMPIRE / FUN LADIES
Seattle power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots are irresistible party starters. Their songs are powered by fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keyboards, and headhum-inducing hooks, and all these combine in a glorious, slightly insane energy in both their live shows and in their new album, Colorpunch.
Seattle Weekly has compared them favorably to the Shins, the Deli Seattle Magazine has praised them for their "flashy, out-of-control pop sensibilities," and Seattle radio 90.3 KEXP named their song "Go For a Walk" their Song of the Day, calling it a "briliant pop tune and nothing you should skip out on". Think vintage Flaming Lips with a splash of NES and a dash of the Unicorns, and you get the idea.
Bullets or Balloons is a 3 piece northwest band based out of Olympia and Spokane that has created a genre hopping, beat dropping, time signature shifting sound. Combining influences such as The Minutemen, Gang of Four, Fugazi, At The Drive-In, The Hives, The Gossip, and others the band has crafted their own unique sound and accompanying frantic live show.
