Another Batch of Bands to Catch at SXSW: Standing Shadows, Tic Tic Boom, & Alex Winson

Standing Shadows

Los Angeles based alt-indie-electro band Standing Shadows combine infectious guitar melodies and soundscapes, vintage synth tones and warbles, driving percussive beats, and the intimately emotional vocals…ranging from uber-chill heroin whispers, to heart-pumping, sweat-soaking screams. With their new remix EP for One Way Ride, Standing Shadows are making their way to Austin, TX to put on a energetic set at SXSW in the Spring.

The emerging indie synth-pop band Tic Tic Boom! is the creative convergence of Mike DeLay and Leilani Francisco.

This March Tic Tic Boom! will be headed to their first SXSW in Austin, TX to perform at several unofficial parties and will be touring through Arizona in April.
