If we may be so bold as to introduce Motive’s new EP, It’s Illicit. This EP reflects the surreal experiences Lead vocalist Nick Wold, bassist Andrew McGovern, guitarist David Leondi and drummer Chris Bagamery garnered leaving jazz behind in Seattle for Brooklyn’s indie music scene. With lyrics ambivalent to the realities of a twentysomething existence and a Strokes-worthy dirty rock grit, these tracks cement Motive as a true Brooklynite sound.
Haim (pronounced Hime) are three sisters who put most of their male counterparts to shame. This girls completely own rock 'n' roll. It's an early 90's R&B meets Fleetwood Mac meets 80's dance sound. If you can take one bit of advice from us, make Haim the band you listen to this year.
In no-nonsense rock 'n' roll style The Vaccines ascended the Terminal 5 stage at 10 pm Thursday storming straight into 'No Hope'. The new song, the opening track on their new album Come of Age was met with an eruption of energy from their eager young fans, singing along as if it was already a classic. This is the Vaccines first headline tour of America. They supported Arctic Monkeys on their 2011 North American, introducing the band to the endless roads and touring opportunities the States has to offer.

Charlene Kaye is not your typical singer songwriter. Her hit song “Animal Love” crosses more genres than a Girl Talk album. With a burgeoning career and growing fandom, Kaye takes her orchestral chamber pop sound on tour this Spring with Alexz Johnson. Here we explore the influences behind her dynamic sound from the folk sound of a banjo to the artistic merit of 80’s pop performance
Twelv considered hundreds of bands before deciding which to include in issue 2. As a New York based magazine, Twelv is always on the hunt for emerging music talent in the New York area. When our editor in chief spotted Motive, he knew this dirty-rock band from Brooklyn was fit for Twelv.
The young California native, who currently calls Los Angeles home, said she knew she wanted to be a musician all her life and begun self-teaching at the age of nine.
Though she describes herself as a “musical outcast,” finding it difficult to confine herself to any one music genre, Chelsea Wolfe’s music has been described as everything from “doom-folk” to “drone-metal-art-folk” to “gloomy Portishead-meets-Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.”
Her name means nothing to most Americans, but Paloma Faith has the spirit of fame. Her burlesque theater pop has already attained star status in her native UK, and just recently hooked the attention of American music luminary, LA Reid. Last Wednesday night, a swarm of music biz insiders entered a private, promotional performance at Manhattan’s Edison Ballroom with the hopes of sucking up the next big starlet from across the shore. By the end of the night, it seemed a mystery that Paloma Faith had been silent to the Americas before now.
Five hundred anxious New Yorkers stretched down blocks of Franklin Street last night – and not just for the complimentary booze. The free beer that awaited them inside was only a perk of the free, public concert experience a la Brooklyn’s House of Vans. Every few weeks of summer, this hollowed-out, white washed garage in hippest-of-them-all Greenpoint becomes a hub for young music lovers to dress up, drink up, and groove to their favorite new bands.
