Local Buzz Cut of the Week: The Nearly Deads

 

Fresh off a Converse Battle of the Bands win at the Journey’s Backyard BBQ in Nashville, TN, and a #14 spot on the Billboard Next Big Sound Chart, The Nearly Deads are primed and ready to explode. The Nashville-based DIY band has created a buzz of their very own, mixing the polished pop vocals of singer Theresa Jeane with aggressive grunge-inspired instrumentals of Steve Tobi, Cory Walen, Kevin Koelsch, and Brandon Barnes. The Nearly Deads have managed to create a truly unique genre that not only gives a nod to gritty grunge, but brings it back in a way never heard before. Imagine Kelly Clarkson as front-woman of the Foo Fighters.
