Bottled Up is a rock and roll quartet from DC. Growing its roots from garage, new-wave, 70's rock, and punk ethos.
"Bottled Up rips through their songlist like men on a mission. Surf Alt-Rock. If I’m not mistaken, the handle is a reference to an old Devo tune. Echoes of the B52s. Strains of the Del Rays run through a back slap reverb pedal on brown tab acid drenched in cheap whiskey and the company of a one night stand you plan to regret. Melodic and enticing." -The Antonym
“DC local producer, vocalist and guitarist Nikhil Rao just put all his cards on the table . In his latest release “It Ain’t a Thing”, he discusses his fears and anxieties in his daily life. A vulnerable and transparent track, Rao drives his issues through a new wave/slacker rock vibe with his band Bottled Up." -Indie Current
Stray Fossa's Nick and Will Evans, alongside childhood friend, Zach Blount, cut their teeth experimenting with elements of classic British pop pulled from family record collections, at the same time developing an ear for the lyrical storytelling traditional to the Appalachian music-scape in which they grew up. A renewed effort to achieve compromise amidst opposing artistic tastes continues to drive their creative process. Having spent six years pursuing independent musical projects while living apart in the US, UK, and Germany, the band’s debut release, Sleeper Strip, speaks to this ongoing effort both in theme and craft. Entirely home-recorded and self-produced, the EP is a testament to their collaborative songwriting and self-sufficiency in music production. Originally from Sewanee, Tennessee, Sleeper Strip marks the band's first release since regrouping in Virginia in late 2017
