Alt-Rock Bluegrass Band Tornado Rose releases Dust in my Shadow EP

Dust in my Shadow EP embodies a full Parthenon of musical influences capturing aspects of Bluegrass, Rock, Folk, Blues, Red Dirt, Funk and Soul for a reverberant mix of substance and surprise. From melodic electric guitar riffs to the sweet sensibilities of an old time string band, Tornado Rose offers a fresh look at the evolutionary nature of music and transforms a wide spectrum of inspiration into pure musical fusion.

Dust in my Shadow EP is streaming at http://www.tornadorose.com/Tunes.html – where an MP3 of the hit song ’80 Acres’ is available for free download.

“Dust in my Shadow EP represents a year of soul-searching, songwriting, and really coming into our sound as a band,” said vocalist Brooke Bell. “I feel like the luckiest girl alive to get to play in a band with some of the kindest, coolest and most talented guys I know. The hardest part of making Dust in my Shadow EP was picking the genre of music we fit into because the songs on the EP are so diverse. I would consider us alternative bluegrass, alternative folk, alternative rock, alternative alternative. It is so hard to classify our style that we don’t really care to.”

Hailing from the Baltic Music Scene (Lithuania) Post Punk Revival Band “Deeper Upper”

Deeper Upper Indie Band

Formed in 2010, Deeper Upper are a young band from Vilnius, Lithuania, who eclectically mix post-punk influences with modern synth-driven sounds. Daktaras Kestutis (vocals, guitar, keys), Evaldas Arlauskas (keys), Ignas Ivaska (guitar), and Rimas Nasutavicius (drums) played their first gig at a rock contest a few years ago, and won first prize. As winners, Deeper Upper earned a chance to record two songs in a professional recording studio. Soon after, the band would release “Things Behind the Eden doors” and “Last I Saw You, You Were Dreaming of a Blue Sundown”, which earned them their first radio spins, as well as exposure in and out of Lithuania. Throughout the rest of 2011, Deeper Upper played across their home country and released “I Am the Colours”, a single that Mercedes-Benz eventually picked up for one of their promotional mixed tapes. In 2012, the band released their first video, for the single, “In the Sands of a Desert”.
