Video Du Jour: The Watermarks

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , , , , on May 8, 2012 by 30daysout

Here’s a video from a new song, “Run Away” by Houston band The Watermarks. Call ’em indie, call ’em synth-pop if you want but the Watermarks have been mashing rock with electronic music for quite a while now.

They have opened for the likes of Weezer, The Flaming Lips, Echo and the Bunnymen, of Montreal and more and they are of course on the bill for the big Free Press Summer Fest, detonating June 2-3 in downtown H-Town. “Run Away” is the title song for The Watermarks’ new mini-EP which you can get for free (or you can pay for, if you wish) here or here.

SXSW: Emily Long, Rock Vixen/The Watermarks

Emily Long

Expect a sweaty dance party scene when Emily Long brings the catchy hooks and anthemic melodies of her debut album When I Was In Love With for a couple of shots at SXSW.  She opens for Ian McLagan and the Bump Band at the Dog and Duck Pub‘s annual St. Patrick’s Day party on Wednesday, then hits the Moose Lodge on Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Houston’s own the Watermarks are also playing at the Moose Lodge, 10 p.m. Saturday.  The Watermarks effortlessly bridge the gap between rock and electronic music. The band are known not only for their incendiary live performances, but also their D.I.Y. approach to recording, writing, and producing which has yielded two self released EPs.  Indie rock D.I.Y. ethics, noise-pop sensibilities and electronic textures have led the band to craft a unique sound where melody is the main character …a  sound that is danceable and poppy yet full of loud guitars and heavy organic drums.
