Made up of longtime friends and collaborators Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih, Orlando, Florida’s SALES formally came together in 2013, self-releasing their debut single “renee” to swift online praise. Remaining fiercely independent ever since, SALES were, by 2014, one of the most buzzed about new bands with nothing more than a handful of tracks to their name, dropping an eponymous debut EP that year, and their first full-length, also self-titled, in 2016. With their atmospheric, improvisational, electronic and sample tinged style of artsy, indie pop minimalism, fused by Morgan’s airy, enigmatic vocal prowess, the duo have become darlings of the indie scene, amassing praise from virtually every trendy blog and outlet worth reading, and with their brand new sophomore effort, forever & ever, they sound as confident, adventurous, and refined as ever. A must-know rising act, SALES’ return to Nashville should be at the top of your spring radar.
Formed in 2015 in San Francisco, No Vacation found swift early traction with a pair of promising mixtapes, sharpening their dreamy, wistful, surf-inspired, west coast indie pop sound. Nearly as soon as they arrived, however, the group split, going on an indefinite hiatus just as they had begun to find an audience. Reforming a year later, No Vacation are back with an altered lineup and a refreshed sound, culminating in last fall’s Intermission EP. Now based in Brooklyn, the band are solidly on their second wind, working towards a new full-length, and once again finding widespread critical acclaim. They’re a perfect compliment to SALES, so don’t be late!
