It’s time once again for the Top 3 Video countdown. The Top 3 Indies Artists Videos for the week of Feb. 21, 2016! I think you’ll really enjoy today’s countdown as the videos are all pretty cool or even hilarious!
First up is SWMRS. SWMRS (pronounced as “Swimmers”) is a punk rock outfit from Oakland, California. They formed in 2004. They draw on a mix of influences ranging from the Beach Boys to the Ramones to create their own brand of rock and roll. This song is hilarious! I never thought that Miley Cyrus was punk rock, but, well, I guess she is.
#3) SWMRS – Miley https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKbNDIigdlg
At #2 is Wavves, another band from California! This is their 3rd appearance on our countdown!
#2) Wavves – Way Too Much https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPdx7Il9DrM
The next band up is from New York and I think they are one of the most exciting new finds in sometime. Their name is “Baby Shakes” and they just finished touring Japan. I found out about them because my friends in Osaka said that they were Fab! I describe them as “the Ramones meet the Bangles.” This band is going to be huge!
#1) Baby Shakes – Summer Sun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuHU5yAOYik
