Porlolo EP Release with Wildermiss and The Still Tide
For the better part of the past year, Wildermiss has been quietly taking Denver by storm. Unassumingly serving as a supporting act playing frequent weeknight gigs, the auspicious quartet has been steadily making a name for itself with a smart brand of guitar-driven pop rock, which has plenty in common with acts like Echosmith, Metric and Florence and the Machine. Made up of three former members of Red Fox Run (guitarists Joshua Hester and Seth Beamer and drummer Caleb Thoemke), the foursome is led by the soaring vocals of Emma Cole, whose expressive voice evokes the silken strains of Ellie Goulding and Hayley Williams. The music is instantly memorable and it’s a safe bet that by the time the act finishes work on its debut recordings, which it's working on now, the outfit will be packing shows of its own as the main attraction.
Porlolo is the musical project of Erin Roberts, formed in 2002 with guitarist Tom Mohr. Current lineup includes Ben DeSoto on drums and Anna Morsett on bass. Melancholic melodies, folk pop hits, and creep rock.
The Still Tide
Described best as “... a little sweet spot where indie rock, shoegaze and folk rock all intersect” (Blurt Online), The Still Tide is the seasoned, luminous sound of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Anna Morsett, co-founding member and guitarist Jacob Miller and the rhythm section of drummer Joe Richmond and bassist Nate Meese. Since leaving New York City’s jagged cityscape for their current home beneath the mountains of Denver’s skyline they’ve put out three EPs and have been hard at work touring and crafting new songs within the Colorado music scene. Their newest EP“Run Out”, the first with producer, engineer and drummer Joe Richmond (Churchill, Tennis) is out nationally on Denverrecord label Greater Than Collective
