Best new music: Locals Only

February 9, 2019

Flying Fish Cove by Dan Bracaglia

We are really so incredibly lucky to be music fans in the Seattle area. The artists who call this area home are just too good. 

This week we had some new releases out of the Locals Only crowd that you really need to put your ears on, like right now.

Tangerine - Chains

Yeah, they moved to L.A. I'm not mad at them though. I don't care where they live, I'm still going to claim Tangerine. Really glad they are releasing some great new music too. The band engineered, produced and mixed “Chains” all by themselves at home. The finished product is impressive no matter who produced it.

Bad Saint – Fall City Road

I was very recently made aware of local punk band Bad Saint and I am instantly a fan. Here is their new music video for “Fall City Road” that just premiered this week.

Flying Fish Cove – Johnny Paper

Oh hello to my new favorite local band. This is some dreamy indie-pop perfection right here and I think that Flying Fish Cove is a band we will be playing and talking about on Locals Only for a long time. This track "Johnny Paper" will be on their debut album, At Moonset, due out 5/3. If you like Kimya Dawson or any good music then this is for you.

OK Sweetheart – We Can Do It

Just ahead of an upcoming live performance in Seattle (Neumos 2/14) and about a year after the initial release of the track, OK Sweetheart went next level with this new video for “We Can Do It”. The video is stunning and a great reminder of how good the song is. Also, I see you Matt Bishop.

Saint Claire – Can’t Help Falling In Love

Look, I’m a sucker for a great cover. So when Saint Claire announced he was releasing a cover he had my attention for sure and I couldn’t wait to find out what it would be. This cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love” is rad and will certainly be on the all covers show later year.
