The Flavr Blue
From: Seattle, WA
Seattle’s own, The Flavr Blue, are one of the fiercest dance/electronica/soft-house trios around. With musical resumes boasting roles such as singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, disk jockey, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis collaborator, these dudes and dudette have found a way to mesh their skills via synth-infused tracks to get you jumping and fist-pumping the night away.
Amidst their tech-y DIY set up consisting of MacBook Pros, countless synthesizers, drum machines, and custom lighting fixtures, perhaps their strongest asset as a band is the most organic component of their music — the three part harmonies. All three members of the group take turns singing on their records, but as a first time listener, you might not think of any one of them as a stand-out vocalist. However, when Hollis, Lace Cadence, and Parker Joe sing together harmoniously, there is definitely a spark that sets them apart from the countless other dance/electronic outfits in the scene.
The Flavr Blue’s latest EP, Bright Vices, is up for free download on their website so you have no reason to not check it out! Catch The Flavr Blue on their SXSW 2014 stint down in Austin, TX.
