Sheers’ music cuts in ways where expressive & ambitious pop vignettes become expansive songs.” (Impose Magazine) Melodicism and classical stylings converge in the brooding soundscapes of Portland’s experimental pop trio Sheers. Frontwoman and songwriter Lily Breshears grips tight the reins of her voice, bending the edges of melody to wrap unease in a veil of beauty. Breshears combines turn of millennium R&B with elements of French impressionism, an interplay of tension, texture and groove. Since jazz drummer Daniel Rossi and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Stern joined the project, Sheers has found a sound near triphop, but as Willamette Week writes, “it’s a real treat to hear a band that’s almost a genre unto themselves."
Star Club is a dance punk band formed in Portland Oregon. Star Club makes angular dance music for your 1980's punk soul.
