You'll Never Hear This Band on the Radio: Gayngs

2010-09-14 09:32
The unique look and feel of US band Gayngs has not gone unnoticed by live crowds in the Midwest and beyond. In the video below, you get an idea just what "retro-but-contemporary" means.

Wiki bios the band thus: "Gayngs is a Midwestern indie band with a 1980s soft rock-inspired sound. Founded by Ryan Olson, the group consists of 23 musicians, including Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Rhymesayers rapper P.O.S, and members of Solid Gold...

"In May of 2010 the band played their first show at First Avenue in Minneapolis. Billed as The Last Prom on Earth, the concert featured all 23 members of the band, prom-themed decorations, a balloon drop, and a surprise appearance by audience member Prince."

Twenty three members? Seriously? See for yourself.

So it is that Channel24 brings you a new regular feature called "You'll Never Hear This band On the Radio".
