I apologize for falling behind on these Music Features. I just had a crazy week in Vegas doing some photo shoots and networking, and safe to say there are a lot of cool things coming within the year that I couldn’t be more excited about. So while it doesn’t excuse my timing on these things, it’s well worth it.
I had heard about Arbors Lane in early 2017 when they had a show with the pals in Red Handed Denial and The Parallel. I make it a habit to check out all the bands on the bill, and since they were the only band I didn’t know, I paid special attention to them. Ultimately I didn’t make it out to the show but started to keep tabs on this band. I did a quick search on YouTube and found their music video for “Heart’s Hidden” from their ‘prologue.’ EP. I was sold instantly. They’ve got a great alternative rock sound, they’ve got the look, lead singer Jenny Palacios has a killer but soothing voice – hell I even really like their band name. Throw their name on a list of Warped Tour bands and just from hearing the name I would think “yeah, that’s totally a band that sounds like they should be on Warped, let me check it out” haha. I don’t know where the name came from – it could just be the name of someone’s street – they could even hate it, but it resonates well with me.
Early in 2017 they released an acoustic track and video for “Something Left” off their ‘prologue.’ EP. It’s a very a cool rendition that reminds me a lot of what We Are The In Crowd did for some of their tunes…except Arbors Lane hits it way more in the feels Lionel Richie style. Later in the year, in September, Arbors Lane opened for PVRIS at the Danforth Music Hall. Like, what? Awesome! Another show I missed….
I am excited to see where this band goes and to hear some new music. Hopefully at some point this year I’ll finally catch them live! Please check them out and follow them. Links below!
