Stolen Transmission has signed two new bands, The Oohlas and Bright Light Fever. You can read the press release below.
The Oohlas, a Los Angeles based trio that is destined for commercial success with the release of Best Stop Pop. The Oohlas dirty yet accessible production of mid-nineties alternative rock has a classic feel without sounding retro. Their beautiful melodies, interesting arrangements and sophisticated compositions that will no doubt invoke flattering comparisons to bands such as Belly, Veruca Salt, Weezer and perhaps the Breeders. As a side note, The Oohlas includes former Everclear drummer, Greg Eklund.
Bright Light Fever made up of four guysÃƒ”šÃ‚ (headed by Evan Ferro, the driving force behind the group) writes songs that are immediately engaging yet entirely pensive and are reminiscent of Bleach-era Nirvana and early White Stripes. They bring danceable rhythms, story-based lyrics, warm and passionate vocal, and a rawness in songwriting that is arresting for any listening. The fun doesnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t stop there either, Joby from The Bronx has produced The Evening Owl, and it doesnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t get much better than that!
