Brash. Bright. Wildly melodic. Avenue Beat are three girls from Quincy, Illinois who grew up ingesting social media platforms, theater groups and hanging out with older kids – and turned into the notes of a chord that lands somewhere between Taylor Swift ascending and Billie Ellish at her most real. The genzennial collective of Sami Bearden, Savana Santos and Sam Backoff are strong, smart, fun – in love with life, each other and getting on with it – the 21-year-old besties capture the fresh face of new feminism, while blowing off being told who girls are supposed to be. Signed to a joint venture with The Valory Music Co. and Tape Room Records, Avenue Beat released their debut self-titled EP on July 26, which was co-produced by David Garcia, Ashley Gorley and Savana. With the stretched staccato vowels of the hilarious self-empowering “Delight,” which offers Nashville its first self-referenced meta moment, the sisters-sticking-together euphoria of “Be A Bro” or the angst-rejecting post-break-up “Ruin That For Me,” Avenue Beat beckon listeners with pillows of narcotic harmony and glistening melody – only to sucker punch them with lyrical truths that cut right to the gut.
