Nashville Surf-Indie Band to Play at Firefly
They’re *repeat repeat, Nashville’s emerging surf-indie band. With influences from artists ranging from The Everly Brothers to NOFX, this trio is a mix of pop-rock with a 1960s feel.
Frontman and co-founder Jared Corder started the band with drummer Andy Herrin after the two met while working at a Nashville record store.
Corder’s wife, Kristyn, later completed the group, providing female vocals, although she had no intentions of originally joining. A producer heard her on a demo and knew she would be the perfect fit.
“She knew all the lyrics to the songs. It was like a no-brainer in hindsight,” Corder said.
The band’s first album, Bad Latitude, dropped in 2014, featuring songs written just after Jared and Kristyn’s engagement.
“Looking back, it would be weird to sing all of those songs to somebody else, but then I got to sing it to the person I wrote them about,” he said.
*repeat repeat’s sophomore album, Floral Canyon, a nod to the “Free Love” Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles, will be released by the end of summer under the band’s new label, Dangerbird Records.
With a throwback West Coast vibe, it will feature songs with a contrast between upbeat rhythms and darker lyrics and chilling harmonies, like those featured in their single “Plugged In.” A new single from the album will drop in a few weeks — the same day that the album’s release will be announced.
For up-to-date information about the band, check out their bi-weekly podcast on iTunes, “The *repeat *repeat Podcast Podcast.”
Catch *repeat repeat’s Firefly debut Thursday at 4 p.m. at The Woodlands’ camping stage.
