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 Audiorotic.
About the artist:
Equally indebted to the flamboyance and fearlessness of rock’s past, as well as the humanly inhuman nature of 1990s trip hop and EBM, Seattle up-and-comers Audiorotic are a force to be reckoned with in the world of synthpop. Stuttering, arpeggiating analog synthesizers and frolicking drum machine beats provide a comfortable, just-minimal-enough sound-bed for vocalist William Wilson to glam it up with his bold and somewhat slinky vocal delivery, reminiscent of Bowie at his showiest.
Audiorotic’s one-two punch of debut singles — the gleaming mid-tempo daydream “Stars Descend” and the duo’s loose and dramatic cover of David Bowie and Giorgio Moroder’s 1982 single “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)” — both serve as promising appetizers from the duo’s forthcoming debut self-titled EP, projected for release in spring 2020.

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.
