The Pickup

Bands and new music for fans of Indie Rock

Flèche

This is Flèche (Paris, FR), four fans of The Get Up Kids having each previously played in a bunch of bands and now trying to mix the thick rock and harmonies of Alice in Chains with the technical pop of Minus the Bear. What we like is to make the melody that alternates soft verses and heavy choruses

For fans of

The Drew Thomson Foundation

On the surface, "Break" is about a relationship, but in a broader sense, it’s about not being afraid of change and the possible consequences that can come from it. We had a lot of fun working with Alex Newport, and I think that comes through in the recording and the rest of the album.

For fans of

Wild Mercury

Wild Mercury originally wanted to start a folk group that focused on warm vocal harmonies. Surrounded by instruments in their dark jam basement, they got caught up by an urge of rock, of rooted sounds and of an unfulfilled dream of a riot youth. Better late than never.
