Iska Dhaaf - Brooklyn, NY via Seattle, WA
Inspired by Sufi poetry, limitation, and an obsessive preoccupation with writing, Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes have fused their seemingly disparate musical and personal backgrounds into something searching and honest. Their songs, with heavy rhythms and cutting melodic hooks, are at once infectious and sweetly disarming. With both musicians holding integral Seattle music backgrounds in projects such as Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band and Mad Rad among others.
We were able to catch Iska Dhaaf at multiple shows in and around Seattle before and after their departure to New York. This two-piece produces elements from both Nathan and Benjamin's previous musical journeys which combine as a powerful tempo driven and guitar soaked rally cry.
Coma Figura - Tacoma, WA
With a self-described Bedroom Pop vibe, Coma Figura have been one of the cities best bands throughout the celebration and release of their latest album 'COMPANY'. With deep roots in the Tacoma music community Coma Figura is composed of Kyle Gootkin, Brittany White, Mike Pa, and Jesse Goodrum.
Generifus - Olympia, WA
Spencer Sult's band Generifus released 'Extra Bad' last September with high praise from local and national music writers. THRDCOAST wrote that 'Extra Bad' "...is legitimately an album we've been unable to stop listening to. From irresistible jams like "Small Stuff" to the Police-esque "The Park," it's impressive just how easily-digestible Sult's music can be. And perhaps most impressively, the fact that Extra Bad has the potential for broad appeal doesn't mean that it's at all shallowthe vocals manage to bring it down to earth and convey real artistry."
