Please check out Verity Credit Union, our great partner in the 100 Bands in 100 Days local music showcase.
Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our sixth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’ll be showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about. For the fourth year in a row, the showcase is once again presented by Verity Credit Union.
Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene on there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured act is Treasure Jansen.
About the artist:
A bright new face in Seattle’s ever-growing and diversifying underground scene, versatile indie artist Treasure Jansen combines everything from mid-tempo indie rock to alternative dance to radio and playlist-ready power pop, all laden with quirky flourishes emblematic of this current generation’s net-based electronic music. Guitar plays the largest role in Jansen’s well-rounded backing instrumentation, often manifesting in sportive, atmospheric licks marinated with just the right touch of reverb, but there’s a noticeable, albeit conservative, use of synths throughout his music for added color and flavor.
Jansen’s debut single, “Patterns,” is a surprisingly gentle and gliding piece of slick indie pop, ideal for a windows-down stroll through a dead city at nighttime. This tendency towards dense atmosphere was further explored on Jansen’s sophomore single, “Idle Thoughts,” a twinkling gallop seemingly indebted to the psych-pop leanings of contemporaries like Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

A huge shoutout to Verity Credit Union for doing so much for the music community and for being such a great partner.
As an added bonus this year, House Of Cannabis will be playing the featured bands in each of their three Washington locations.
