Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our fourth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, presented by Verity Credit Union. Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag at Twitter on the daily to stay on top of all the bands featured and make sure to follow Verity on Twitter and NW_Music_Scene as well. 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 sun yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured artist is Stereo RV.  

Earlier this year we reviewed Human, the fantastic debut EP from Portland pop duo Stereo RV. We liked it so much we figured now would be a good time to revisit it.

Here’s some of what we said about the EP in our review:

The EP begins on an incredibly high note with the song “Human.” Myra’s strong voice and the strong beat throughout it, leave a complete and lasting feeling. Everything about the song simply makes you feel good; from the lyrics to the beautiful melody.

There’s a good amount of versatility throughout Human, too. The first two tracks are explosive with musical electricity, while the third, titled “The One,” takes a step back and showcases a more vulnerable side of Stereo RV. Then on the fourth track, “Free,” a mixture of the mellow, meaningful sound and the bold, more dramatic feel that they sometimes produce intertwine magnificently.

Many artists in our generation tend to dwell on negativity with their music. However, Stereo RV does the opposite. Their lyrics contain uplifting words about loving yourself and others. The words on the Human EP will motivate and inspire you to be a better version of yourself.
In a nutshell, this music is captivating, easy on the ears, and a great promoter of happiness. For a first EP, Human is extremely impressive, and hopefully this release will be the first of many more for Stereo RV in the future.

(You can listen to Human via the band’s website HERE and watch the official video of the song below. Get more info about them on Facebook HERE.)
