Young Cardinals, a preponderate three-piece based in Raleigh, NC has been in existence in various incarnations since 2006. With a sound that can only be described as dirty, bluesy, indie-psychedelic rock. In 2010- frontman and guitarist James Forgey, known for his blistery guitar riffs and harmonics, met up with Idaho natives Sam Branstetter (bass) and Marcus Matile (drums) to form Young Cardinals. In 2011, the trio released their first self-titled EP under Young Cardinals after collaborating with producer Mike Garrigan (of the bands Athenaeum and Collapsis) and recording mastermind Mitch Easter. “The Ghost of a Locomotive” was released in early 2013, marking the band’s first full length album. In October of 2014, Young Cardinals met up with grammy nominated producer, David Arnold, at Stump Sound Studios to record the album “Flamingos” that was released in Spring of 2015. A «short film or a very long music video» was released the following year under the same name, directed and produced by Patrick Shanahan of Denim Buffalo Productions.
THE OLD SIOUX SUMMER:
Formed in 2015 by Jeremy Scott and Garrett Sitter, The Old Sioux Summer brings back the heart from a once big beating indie post-punk rock emo scene from the late ‘90s. With influences from respected bands from Pedro The Lion to Minus The Bear, The Old Sioux Summer takes what was, to the current 21st century time in their own careful and heartfelt songwriting. They will be working on their debut album over the course of 2018 in hopes to release by Spring 2019.
Raleigh-based rock music in the vein of Braid, Mock Orange, No Knife, Sunny Day Real Estate, or one of the millions of bands with a Kinsella in it.
