I confess that I initially decided I had to listen to this tune because, hey, naming a band after the kind of contractions you might experience during pregnancy is a pretty awesome thing to do. Once I listened to the tune, I fell for the riffs and the melody and the lyrics, too.
More about the band:
From the sleepy town of Dover, Delaware (a city that transforms once a year for the Firefly Music Festival) five musicians bonded over a shared love of melodic guitar-driven, female-fronted indie rock music to form the band Braxton Hicks. Crediting influences such as Middle Kids, Echosmith, The Smiths, The Cure, Sleater-Kinney, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dum Dum Girls, The Beths, The Pixies, The Police and U2, Braxton Hicks combine ear-candy guitar riffs, sweet & sour vocal harmonies and insightful lyrics to create a fresh sound all their own.
Braxton Hicks is:
- Carrie Baith- vocals/keys
- Bill Bush – guitar
- Rod Whisner – drums
- Roger Hillis -bass
- Mike Fernandez- guitar/vocals
