Lancaster’s Wallace Gerdy first showed up on the Philadelphia scene as the lead shredder in basement show regulars Mattress Food. Then, back in January of this year, she ventured out on her own with a short set of demos that were heavily informed by her love of classic rock. The instantly likeable “Sunny Monday” (with its undeniable debt to “Sweet Jane” by The Velvet Underground) caught my ear during the December edition of Items Tagged Philadelphia.
We’re Wallace: the love child of 60s rock n’ roll and Philly grunge. Our debut album is coming out next month and we recently released a music video for “Keeping Composure”. As a band, our lyrical inspiration comes from the great storytellers like Bruce Springsteen, while Wallace’s vocals come as a direct result of her discovering Janis Joplin and our distortion comes at your from all angles.
Fueled by an angst and ready to unleash on the world is Wallace in the new music video for “Keeping Composure.” It opens with an acoustic guitar but soon switches the distortion on with a sonically punk aesthetic. This honest work of a tune is a great way to kick off into the weekend. Take a listen and view below!
Wallace’s lyrical inspiration comes from the great storytellers, her voice from Janis Joplin, and her distortion comes at you from all angles. Wallace’s music deals with drug addiction, love, and life in a way that serves as both an emotional coping mechanism and communicative tool. Backed by Hannah Pugh (bass) and Adam Figurelle (drums), Wallace is a full fledged rock n’ roll force to be reckoned with.
Cozy up with Wallace, who bring a sunny disposition and bright energy to blues and classic rock influenced music. The Philadelphia three (sometimes four) - piece talks about Janis Joplin, the Philadelphia scene, writing music with people they respect, and putting together their debut record.
New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the music video premiere of “Quicksand” by The Great Heights Band. The track is exotic in its presentation, luring listeners in with a dance driven, eclectic beat. The video showcases a masquerade styled house party with extremely decorative attire, complimenting the track’s upbeat, semi-hypnotic pulse. Atmospherically, the song has a tense mood to the running beat. Take a listen to below with this exclusive video premiere.
“Nothing’s as intimidating as empty pages when all the phrases won’t come out.”
Okay, amen. The Great Height Band officially won me over with a single line that I’m bound to have run through my head, marquee style, every time that I need to sit down and write something. It definitely doesn’t hurt that this band soars through the kind of infectious and youthful pop-punk that begs for Summer nights, cheap beer, and sloppy sing-a-longs.
The Great Heights Band - Better Things
Our own Joel Funk premiered the music video for The Great Heights Band’s new single “Better Things,” and like him I was a fan from the first listen. A fantastic upbeat rock vibe pairs perfectly with a lyrical current that we can all relate to: having way too much happening in your head and your life all at once. With a charming music video and a incredible song, The Great Heights Band have cemented themsleves as a band to watch this year.
A fantastic genre-bending band from the east coast, The Great Heights Band are back at it again with the release of their new album rad-pop.! I recently sat down with TGHB’s Neal Karkhanis (vocals/guitar) and Owen Brinser (bass) to discuss their unique musical style, future plans, and their new record rad-pop.!
In the self-important world of music journalism, “pop” can be a four-letter word. Whether drawing connotations of the Billboard Hot 100 or every mid-2000s Pitchfork-core act’s favorite Bandcamp tag, a “pop” identifier is rarely a good thing. So when Baltimore, Maryland’s The Great Heights Band took that word and slapped it up against every DIY musician’s favorite overused adjective, naming their latest record rad-pop, it surely caught attention.
Baltimore indie rock band The Great Heights Band are wowing critics with their sophomore album rad-pop., which was released on April 20th. Formed in the spring of 2014 by singer/guitarist Neal Karkhanis and drummer Paul Martinez, TGHB quickly made a name for themselves in the Baltimore music scene, opening for bands such as Hellogoodbye, Vacationer, Bayside and New Politics.
