King Calaway releases music video for "World For Two"

While King Calaway have clout in the mainstream music scene -- with solo careers, American Idol appearances, and international performances under each of the members' belts -- their debut self-titled album established them as one of Nashville's newest bands on the rise. The band's first single "World For Two" has a sound that layers the soul of Ed Sheeran with the harmony and richness of Little Big Town, a sound that permeates every word and note that comes out of the band's music. The six-member King Calaway has members from both sides of the Atlantic, so while on a surface listen their songs might sound like pure Americana, there is a universal appeal to them that will delight fans of all good music around the globe. Take a look at the music video for "World For Two" below. - Will Sisskind

Catch Big Huge's blast from the past at BK Bazaar on 04.15

Bands like New York’s own BIG HUGE seem to exist sometimes for the single purpose of making you remember the past, only to suddenly find yourself relishing in its fascination. Power pop was an American counterpunch to the British Invasion of the '60s and in their 2017 record CRUEL WORLD BIG HUGE channels it beautifully. With the fun and upbeat tempos of power pop heroes like Cheap Trick well ingrained into songs like “WENT BAD” and “LOST CLASSIC” the group takes full liberty to crank up the style to one hundred with fuzzy vocals and crunchy guitar licks that will shine proto-garage undertones at you. This New York City quintet remains above everything faithful to themselves, catch them on April 15th at Brooklyn Bazaar. - Rene Cobar
