Tranquility and Formerly Bodies Give BT Something to Relate to
Tranquility and Formerly Bodies bring emo to the backroom stage of Basement Transmissions
Friday, Feb. 16
Two bands from Michigan, Tranquility and Formerly Bodies, are bringing their distinct styles of emo to the backroom stage of Basement Transmissions, now known as "BT Lounge."
Tranquility's debut album Sonic Propensity is a joyride through seven tracks of easy-listening and emotional indie rock, filled with catchy melodies and intensely personal yet relatable lyrics. Fans of Turnover will undoubtedly enjoy this album front to back.
In only three songs, Formerly Bodies, the moniker carried by singer-songwriter Hannah Weir, creates one of the most calming and dreamy releases you've heard in a long time on her Throwback EP. "Comfy Cozy Song" could have been a 90's soft rock ballad if it weren't released two decades late, and the remaining tracks are equally cathartic in their own right.
Opening acts for the night are punk rockers Shin Guard from Pittsburgh and Wasted Info from Erie. — Tommy Shannon
