Dear Forbidden
Dear Forbidden
Dear Forbidden is female-fronted rock trio based in Philadelphia. Distorted guitars paint the backdrop for haunting melodies sung from a letter that wasn’t meant to be sent.
Spelling Reform
Philadelphia indie group Spelling Reform continues to evolve on its LP "No One’s Ever Changed," released in November 2016 on Black Rd Records. Featured in Consequence of Sound, American Songwriter and more, the record – with touches of indie rock, indie pop, folk and power pop — is anchored by singer/songwriter Dan Wisniewski’s feverous lyrics and urgent vocals, which have drawn comparisons to The Mountain Goats, Dan Bejar and Woody Allen (for real). Recorded in a single, donut-fueled weekend with producer and Hop Along guitarist Joe Reinhart at The Headroom in Philadelphia, "No One's Ever Changed" makes for a fascinating listen, with well-formed songs, energetic delivery and varied instrumentation. For fans of The Weakerthans and Pixies. The group is currently road testing new material for an LP release in 2018.
