A recap of the year in discovering the talent of tomorrow, one week at a time.
Connecticut-based indie rock band OVLOV are, like their Northeast pals in Speedy Ortiz, Grass Is Green, and other Exploding In Sound-affiliated acts, keeping the 90s guitar rock vibe alive. With Dinosaur Jr.-level volume and walls of shoegaze distortion, they've been keeping it heavy since 2008. Fronted by Steve Hartlett (vocals/guitar) and with an evolving/rotating cast of contributors and collaborators (for example, am features guest vocalist Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz on a few tracks), the band is set to keep the melodies and hooks huge as they tear through the underground scene. They stopped by to play some tunes and chat with Travis about transportation options, lovemaking, and music.
