Beauty World
Beauty World
In Durham, there are two Beauty Worlds: There's the store on Avondale Drive, one of a few locations, that's a sprawling palace of every beautification item you could ever want. And then there's the band, which is just two people—Leah Gibson and Duncan Webster—who craft warm, cozy tunes from cello and guitar. The band also features Zach Hegg on drums live. Before Beauty World, Leah was a member of Lost In The Trees and Duncan performed in Hammer No More The Fingers. Beauty World's slim arrangements on its self-titled 2014 EP were gentle and charming, but newly layered vocals and more intricate percussion make for delightful additions. The song's colorful, synthy backdrop lends Beauty World a rich new sound that it hadn't quite developed for its first EP. -IndyWeek
Three Body Problem
Three Body Problem
Three Body Problem is a three piece indie-punk band from Durham, NC. Bass player Julie Humphrey and guitarist Nathan McKinney were once in the nautical Americana band of Durham called Shipwrecker. With the addition of Geoff Berry on drums, the latest sound has people hearing influences from Devo, Bratmobile and Deerhoof. Shared vocals about social issues accompany the driving bass, unique rhythms and hauntingly dissonant guitars for a sound that is sometimes poppy, often aggressive and other times dreamy.
Woodvamp
Woodvamp
Woodvamp are an indie rock/post rock band from Durham and Raleigh, North Carolina, but it's origins lay on another continent. Woodvamp grew out of a conversation in Catania, Sicily in June of 2016. Agostino Tilotta (Uzeda, Bellini) asked Chris Rossi (Amor De Cosmos, Lake and Hennepin, The Wusses), "Do you know my friend Giuseppe? He's from Catania. He lives in Raleigh. He's a bass player." Chris and Matt Gocke (81 Mulberry, Spatula, Fontana) had played, briefly, in a band together (Sea Worm) and had been talking about trying to get something new off the ground. When Chris got back from Sicily, he looked up Giuseppe Zappalà (100%, Jerica's, Noema) and fairly soon after the trio were making music together. With each member having roots in music going back to the 90s punk and indie rock scenes, Woodvamp make music that is plaintive, yet driving--largely instrumental, with vocals about bees with mind control, the villains that control them, and the struggle for freedom and humanity in a confusing world.
