Tancred
Jess Abbott is a phenomenal songwriter. More well known for her role playing in Now, Now, she has just recently finished recording her second studio album under the Tancred moniker. Borrowing equally from the pop sensibilities of, say, Tegan & Sara and the melancholy brilliance of, say, David Bazan comes this: her self-titled new album.

Condado
Condado is a band from the heart of North Carolina, originally forming in Randolph County, and is now based in Greensboro. The band consists of frontman Alberto “Birdie” Velazquez, Kevin Benitez (multi instrumentalist), Josh reid (guitar/bass), and Javan Trinidad (bass/drums). The band takes pride in being of color in a scene that’s predominantly white, with every member being of a Latino and/or African ethnicity. Back in late 2017, Birdie and Kevin were already in a band, but due to Kevin’s brothers’ difficult availability, they were forced to look elsewhere. A year and a half prior, Birdie met Josh and Javan at a guitar center and sat down to jam. Birdie was skeptical because of the previous attempts to meet up with the two to casually make music, but he reached out anyway, firmly stating that he was confident that they were the right fit. Shortly after, the four finally met, spent the first 4 months of 2018 writing and rehearsing, recorded their debut EP in the spring, and released it in the summer. From there on out, the band would play occasional house shows and small venue shows all across the state, developing a solid following, making many friends, and even landing a consistent headlining spot at Greensboro’s NYP. Spreading a message of trusting the people that love you with your vulnerability, as well as not getting discouraged by prejudice, Condado approaches songwriting in a conversational manner, reminding listeners that they’re not alone. Pair that with catchy riffs and saturated arpeggios, Condado’s sound is hard to put a finger on, but it’s safe to say that the word “emo” has never sounded so... colorful.
