Millennial

Millennial is a band from Charlotte North Carolina.  Their EP Dreamer is on itunes now and personally this EP remind me of Coldplay.  Millennial has a feel good indie sound and they also just to happen to be one of the smaller bands I truly respect.  Two of the reasons for this is 1. their music is damn good and 2. their social media accounts are very well put together.  For those of you who don’t know me I am a communications major.  I’m not really sure what I want to do with that yet but if I had my choice I would either manage a band or run a band’s social media accounts.  Therefore when good bands have horrible looking accounts I get pretty annoyed.  Matter a fact that may be my biggest pet peeve.

But anyways, sorry  for the rant.  When talking to lead singer, Rodney Eldridge, I felt a really good vibe.  He mentioned how they want to have a community rather than a fan base.  He really emphasized that with this community he wants everyone to be able to help each other out.  Hearing this really caught my attention because out of every band interview I have every seen/heard (probably 70k easily)  I have never heard anyone say anything like that.  Another unique aspect of this band is that at every show they play an improve song, what is this you may ask, well they ask the audience for a topic.  They then begin playing and improvise an entire song based on the topic.  Rodney told me that one day they hope to make an entire album based on the improve songs they’ve played.

Sorry if you’re disappointed but I really have nothing bad to say about Millennial.  I wish them the best of luck and really hope they succeed.  If you haven’t already check them out and if you have anything you’d like to say about Millennial please leave your Unnecessary Fangirl Opinion.

August is Ours

August is Ours is a band from Greenville, NC.  Pictured above is lead singer JT Ackerman.  JT self manages the band and has toured North America and Europe.  August is Ours new single, Toxic Lips was released in January and now has over 1500 hits on Spotify.  This single is very tasteful and really shows off JT’s vocals.

Now every band has their problems, however JT struggles majorly with finding band members as dedicated as him.  For instance while touring Europe and other places in America JT performs as “August is Ours Solo,” where he performs acoustically and ALONE.  When talking to JT, he mentioned he has been through multiple members because of the fact that most of them have been college students.  With that being said, in my opinion JT Ackerman needs to go solo.  I could definitely see JT being more successful as an acoustic artist.  He has the personality, the style and not to mention he already performs solo for most of the shows.  Okay yes, I am a fan of acoustic music so I may be a little bias.  However, his acoustic songs have a really unique sound and emphasize his vocals well.

Overall though, August is Ours is an original band and have a feel good sound.  AND LASTLY I am in no way saying I do not like their music or them in general.  I actually really dig them and enjoy their music.

So thanks for reading, make sure you listen to their track and definitely leave your Unnecessary Fangirl Opinion.
