Girlpool and Porches co-headline show in Nashville

 

Girlpool is a Los Angeles based duo fronted by Harmony Tividad who is the lead singer and bass player and Cleo Tucker who plays guitar. The band was founded in 2013 but did not release a full album until 2015 when they released Before The World Was Big, that album launched their careers in a way they never expected. Before the release of that album, Cleo was thinking about going to college in the west coast and leaving the band but the band began to pick quick success and she decided to stay with Harmony and invest more time in the band. The band caught the attention of English record label Wichita and proceeded to sign a deal and release their debut album with them.

However, Girlpool switched to LA-based label Anti- upon the release of their sophomore album titled Powerplant which came out in 2017. Girlpool’s concert at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville. Although the focus of the band is mostly centered in Tividad and Tucker, the due has a solid band backing them up with another extra guitar and drums. During some of the songs from Before the World Was Big, the backing band left the stage and left it all to Tividad and Tucker. The duo clearly showed a lot of chemistry which is key to a good performance.

Porches is a synth-pop project from New York fronted by Aaron Maine. Maine’s first EPs under the name of Porches were Summer of Ten, Je t’aime, and Scrap and Love Songs Revisited which were all released in 2011. In 2013, Maine signed a deal with Exploding in Sound to release his debut album, Slow Dance in the Cosmos featuring some songs with Frankie Cosmos on bass.

Maine switched to Domino Records upon the release of his sophomore album, Pool and has remained there ever since. Maine is currently touring his latest release The House, which features tracks with his father, Alex G and others. Porches’ performance was electric and had everyone in the audience dancing to his music. Maine ’s live band included a keyboard player, guitar player, bass player, and drummer. Each member had a midi controller to trigger sound samples in order to recreate the sounds from the albums.
