This week’s Sound Bites band grabs seemingly different ingredients and puts them together in a flavorful way. You need to listen to Queen City Heist. It’s alternative meets rock, jazz, blues, funk and reggae. The alternative and rock styles are obvious, but the jazz hints are very modest in places and outright in others. Lead vocalist Skye Mangrum has that perfect combination of rock singer meets jazz specialist (something along the lines of a cross between Lizzie Hale and Diana Krall). Guitars are bright and fantastic, recalling in some ways the glory days of GNR’s Slash in a more modern sound. Bass lines groove all the way through each song and drums are a cut above the competition. What we love about the band is their passionate and driving tracks. The new EP has 9 tracks, each one perfectly crafted for those who love alternative but don’t like the pop sounds of what’s out there. Info on the band and access for you to purchase their new EP is HERE.
