Tonight’s band is an awesome duo from the Heartland. Mates of States is just the ticket for surviving the arriving winter. Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel founded this band in December 1997. From then on their motto has been been play anywhere, at any time. With their upbeat sound they might just make my winter. The amount of albums they have made is unknown. They do have 10 tracks that has manage to catch the eye of Nylon.
My favorite track is Sway. This song is the most upbeat and quirky song I have heard in a long time. They remind me alot of Matt and Kim. They have great synths and drums and the vocals go like chocolate and peanut butter. After a crappy day of work or school just put on the sun and go for a run and maybe you’ll “punching the sky”. Here is Sway:
