Party Nails
Party Nails, the appellation of New York native Elana Belle Carroll, derived the name while living in Brooklyn shortly after graduating from college. One night, while not-so-secretly scoping out a band name, she observed a group of girls pampering themselves before a party, and they just so happened to be painting their nails. “I liked the idea of girls doing their nails just to have a little more fun, just the tiniest detail in getting ready to go out,” Carroll told me.

Although Party Nails’ songs are pop-fueled, disco-driven fun, the lyrics come from a deeply intimate place that, when listened to carefully, can reveal themselves to be quite dark at times: “’Break’ is about that moment in a relationship when you know that it’s going to fall apart, but you’re so sorry.” Listening to her single with that knowledge makes the charismatic vocals and biting hooks all the more affecting.

With loads of enthusiasm and a life-long raw passion for music, Cannons, a new indie-electro band, found one another in 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Wasting little time, lead singer Michelle Joy, Lead Guitarist Ryan Clapham, and Paul Davis on drums and keys, created their own unique sound that naturally formed while fans quickly filled in the big genre question mark with more refined names like "nudisco", "future boogie", and "chill-wave/indie pop". Cannons artfully melds organic and electronic sounds with an influential background based on 80's synth, 70's R&B/soul, current deep house music and electronic production. Cannons has been taking on fans of all ages from all over the world in such a short amount of time with their truly unique and impossible to pinpoint with just one word sound. Cannons has one mission! To keep you dancing all night long!
