Interview with Miami based band Jaialai as they prepare for the 2018 House of Creatives Music Festival. Read about their musical inspirations, what they think the Miami scene needs, and why they do what they do.
If you missed Weekend Atlas’ self-titled debut album back in January, you’ve got catching up to do! This summer, Jacksonville indie-folk rockers, Weekend Atlas are back with EP numero 2 titled Vacant, slated for release in August. First, they’re here to bring Tropicult’s readers (and listeners) an earful of delight with the exclusive first listen of “She’s on Fire” the first single off the upcoming EP.
It’s not often you find a top notch, stoner friendly garage band like Kid Lore in Miami’s less-than-ideal music scene. However, we here at Tropicult like to seek out the good stuff no matter how rare it may be. Featuring brothers Adam Tahoun (guitar and vocals) and Daniel Tahoun (drums) along with bassist Jorge Mogna, these musicians stayed true to their path from the beginning. The Tahoun brothers even attended a Miami branch of the famous School of Rock, an organization that teaches kids how to play rock instruments and start bands.
Aura the Band is homegrown Miami band, stirring up the music scene with their eclectic sound. Songs like “Listening” and the newest single, “As I Fall”, remind me of a hybrid between The Black Keys and Janis Joplin. The four-piece act is composed of Aura/vocals/guitar, Mik/Lead guitar, Alex/Bass, and Anuar/Drums. The band has been together since 2013, writing music from inspired by life experiences. Miami, meet Aura the Band.
Despite only being together for a year, Sunghosts have the sound and stage presence of an established, professional band and are well on their way to becoming local legends.
