The Kickback put a melancholic, indie spin on the John Moreland classic “Christmas Lights”, available now on all digital retailers. The Chicago four-piece followed its triumphant debut with, Weddings & Funerals, released earlier this year.
Graveyard Club (Matthew Schufman (vocals, synths), Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), Cory Jacobs (drums) and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, vocals)) began inspired by a unique list of shared interests: the classic short stories of sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, the music of Ryan Gosling’s little-known band Dead Man’s Bones, and a fascination with both 50’s crooners and 80’s pop music. With an ever-growing reputation as one of Minneapolis’ most entertaining and moving live acts, Graveyard Club has released two albums and an EP of their haunting brand of synthpop. They perform regularly at top Twin Cities venues (7th Street Entry, Turf Club, The Fitzgerald Theater), and have toured nationally – supporting artists such as Elliot Moss, The Drums, Methyl Ethel, Cayucas, San Fermin, Beverly and others. Graveyard Club’s songs have been featured on television for MTV, E!, and more. They continue to receive critical acclaim from local, national, and international press, and were a Minneapolis Star Tribune 2017 Are You Local? finalist for best new band. In November 2017 the band released their latest single, Ouija, and performed at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reyjkavik.
