It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for May 26, 2018! And it’s Ladies Night! Starting off the countdown are a girls band that were introduced to us by DJ Kish of the world famous Wassup Rocker Radioand their name is VOIID. VOIID’s bio says: “A four piece of hellish girl-shriek guaranteed to make your face melt and your boyfriend cry.”

Sure, they have a Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/voiidtheband/

#3) VOIID – Silly Girl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmwfZgHCG3k

Next up at #2 is honeychain. Honeychain are from Los Angeles. Their bio says: honeychain is the sound of chaotic romance, in-your-face garage pop swagger, and hypnotic heartbreak. With a sound soaked in bittersweet alternative rock and sun drenched punky power pop, this Los Angeles based formidable threesome have received a number of stellar reviews from music fans and music critics alike along with radio airplay on numerous college and independent stations and by Rodney Bingenheimer on his Rodney on the ROQ show on KROQ.”

Here’s honeychain’s FB: https://www.facebook.com/honeychainmusic/

#2) honeychain – Goin’ Through Your Purse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNsIDXHvtlw

At #1 is a trio from London named Slowcoaches. Stereoboard magazine says: “Slowcoaches, performs a thousand melodic tricks at a hundred miles an hour, which is just as hard as it sounds. Landing somewhere between the gobby brilliance of peak Elastica and the driving, hi-hat punishment garage rock of the Marked Men, it delivers on the early promise of the band’s first singles by engineering as many collisions between sugary hooks and squalling distortion as possible in half an hour.” 

Here’s their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/slowcoachessux/

#1) Slowcoaches – Living Out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rliBcrGSCCw
