Summer Bands: Halocene

Name meaning: It is an original word, an improvised version of the word "holocene," which means... some sort of landscape or era or something of that sort. Nothing witchy, scary, cussy, or perverted. Trust me.

Discovered this band maybe a week or two ago. If I were working for a label, you best believe I would've signed them. And since I'm not, well, they're still unsigned. Yo, Capitol! I found a band that you might wanna sign. Come on... if you can sign Katy Perry, why can't you sign Halocene? She gets enough publicity already.

Genre: Indie rock

Now, let me show you what I mean when I say Halocene!
"Sometimes" is such a great song. Almost grunge-y. "This won't get better..."
"Last Dance" is the title track from the album, "Can You Hear Us Now?". Yes, we can hear you. And it's like music to our ears, no pun intended.
I love "Secret..." they need to turn it into gossip. Many say that this sounds too "Avril Lavigne-ish" and that they need to get their own sound, but this IS their own sound. Sure, one song sounds similar--- so what? I don't think I'd even like the song if it were by Avril. I like that Addie has that Hayley Williams voice about herself, yet still she has her own tone. And I love how the band can be similar to others at times, but still they have their own sound. They also like making fun of themselves and having fun while recording, as you can see in the "Ocean Avenue" video, which is not on here, but you can see the "Ocean Avenue" lyric post.

And I just saw a video of them at the Phoenix Convention Center.... been there, kinda done that! Oh, Fine Arts... Excited for Louisville, but I feel like Phoenix can't be replaced.

Look up on your own: "Love Was Just A Lie" by Halocene. It's a great song.

This band is for fans of: Paramore, Avril Lavigne, Evanescence, Fireflight, Skillet

//NEXT// This summer, Rend Collective Experiment, Landon Austin, Megan and Liz, Mat Kearney, Fireflight, Sanctus Real, Yellowcard, Local Natives, Kiersten Holine, Sara Bareilles, Wesley Blaylock, Troian Bellisario/FAMILY, Ellie Swisher, Christina Grimmie, Hans Zimmer, Coldplay, Relient K, VersaEmerge, The Fray, and more or less will be coming into picture!
