Dream Pop / Indie
Fauvely – is the project of Chicago-based songwriter Sophie Brochu, who creates deeply personal dream-pop music. After completing her master’s in fiction writing and feeling frustrated with the constraints of her craft, Sophie turned to music for its raw and immediate release. Her debut EP, Watch Me Overcomplicate This, was recognized for its delicately introspective songs about self-doubt and longing.
SuperKnova – “In an age where music — and the musicians creating it — is increasingly insubstantial, SuperKnova, the recent musical project of multi-instrumentalist Ellie Kim, is like a breath of fresh air.” — Chicago Tribune. SuperKnova is a Chicago-based transgender musician who creates Queer Pop, a unique sound that incorporates hip-hop inspired drums, driving synths, and virtuosic guitar solos. She writes about identity, queerness and the struggle to be your authentic self.
Engine Summer – is a 3-piece band that does more than groups double their size: Everyone writes, and everyone’s the lead singer. After meeting in high school shop class and 7 various DIY bands later, the 3 landed together in late 2016 in pursuit of an irreverent style of dancey-yet-krauty psych pop & punk. The rules they ride by are: only make music that excites them; every show leaves an impression; every song different from the last; no social media post too social.
Engine Summer have become a regular in Chicago’s indie clubs, and have also branched out nationally with 2 tours of the East Coast, a recent trip to Denver, a Daytrotter session, and opening slots for Ra Ra Riot, Bodega, and Acquaintances. Their most recent album Indiana was mastered by Dion Lunadon of A Place to Bury Strangers.
