Yams Club is a five piece female-fronted Indie Jazz rock band coming from Atlanta, Georgia. During their most recent set at The Georgia Local Spotlight Jade Thames, was able to bring an incredible presence to a sound that is difficult to condense into words. Yams Club’s powerful and confident lyrics blend effortlessly with the 1980s-esque minimalistic instrumentals. Combining some smooth grooves, dreamy lyricism, and a fierce stage presence, Yams Club has various elements that almost any listener can enjoy and should undoubtedly check out.
Sitting somewhere between Dream Pop and Post Punk, Feverest brings a warm yet melancholic sound with every set they play. Opening for numerous local acts and touring bands, the trio gives audiences a welcoming and emotional sound. The band is only about a year and half old but play like they have been performing together for years. Between alternating instruments and casual banter they take the stage like pros. It’s rare to find an audience as drawn into the music as the artists playing it, but the familiar sounds and catchy beats seems to resonate with every crowd they’ve opened for. From what I’ve seen so far, I’m excited to hear what they have to offer in the future.
Following behind a brand new release on Spotify this past April, Jenny’s Henchmen is a young up and coming band from Alpharetta. They plan on opening up for shows downtown all summer long. Their 7 track release “Is This What You Meant?” gives the charming bedroom-pop music (with a hint of cynicism) that Atlanta’s been missing. Usually playing alongside bands like Lunar Vacation and Antartcticats, it is definitely worth coming to the show a little early to experience a sound almost as sweet as their stage presence.
