Kevin Manship the lead singer & guitarist of Austin rock band Meanswell had a chat with Brandynn from online publication Flesh & Bone about the band, the new music video and how it all started.
"The idea for “Meanswell” is a contraction of “means well.” I was going through a terribly stressful time and had recently had a falling out with my girlfriend. I was totally heartbroken and tried writing to help compartmentalize some of my thoughts and realized I kept saying, “I meant well,” and realized that it wasn't okay to only mean well in a situation like that, you have to go above and beyond for the people you love"

Austin based online music blog OVRLD has premiered the two new singles from Austin indie rockers Chill Russell ahead of their vinyl release tomorrow night at Stubbs.
“Know What I Need” might be landing in October but it’s got all the markings of a beach party hit, with a ramshackle rhythm and bouncy guitar riffs backing up some spurned romantic vocals. All it takes is one listen and you’ll be having your own little beach party bingo session in your apartment, fall weather be damned.

Greg Ackerman and the team at 365 Things Austin gave an in-depth live review of Pennyfest 2017, which was held last weekend at Empire Control Room & Garage in Austin. Boasting a stacked lineup of 13 local bands, it was the annual birthday for local PR firm Penny Loafer PR.
"The highlight of the evening was an outstanding set by Darkbird. Fronted by relentless vocalist Kelly Barnes, this Austin rock outfit puts on a incredibly entertaining show. Barnes dressed in a black jumpsuit and boots with ringlets of curly auburn hair framing her face, cavorted about the stage belting out lyrics as her band chugged along behind her. There simply are not many bands with a lead singer as animated as Barnes on stage. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Even our photographer was seen grinning ear-to-ear while watching the performance".

Austin music blog Track Rambler had some positive words to say about local rock band Meanswell and their two new singles ahead of their music video premiere tonight at the Austin Music Video Festival.
"The song is brilliantly produced with a classic instrumental arrangement combined with authentic vocals. Subtly sounding like a song you’d hear at a 60’s school dance, with a traditional, slow tempo and romantic sound underneath, it’s rocked and roughed up with blasts of duel electric guitars and gruff authentic vocals"
