Chicago's haziest pop rock group, Santah, commands crowds with entrancing drum and bass grooves lathered with blinding kaleidoscope synth textures and ornate vocal harmonies. Contrasting their love for the art of the song with a lust for the spontaneity of raw emotion, the band sways with a brazen honesty that transforms each performance into a communal reflection of the self and its twin.
Their sophomore full-length CHICO made both the Red Eye’s and Chicago Magazine’s 2015 year-end lists of best independent releases while alluring new lovers outside their hometown:
"[Santah] added serious doses of punch and fire to an already powerful sound, giving them the ability to swarm and destroy with their harmonies and blistering walls of sound" - Paste Magazine / Daytrotter
"Heavenly stoned yet permanently grounded. They're as groovy as a soda bar and full of such strong, hallucinatory lyricism that you can paint a picture to damn near every song." - These Days
"[Santah] should also garner comparisons to a more folksy version of Vampire Weekend or a younger, slightly more poppy Wilco and/or Whiskytown. However they got their sound, it's definitely one worthy of lengthy exploration" - Consequence of Sound
"Dreamy folk-pop from a Chicago quintet that rides the beautiful vocal interplay of brother/sister singer-guitarists Stanton and Vivian McConnell, nearly threatenig to build to Arcade Fire-level intensity" - Spin Magazine

Sunjacket
Sunjacket
"[Sunjacket] write[s] and record[s] with the kind of chemistry quality that some bands spend years working to achieve. This kind of debut doesn’t happen very often, so it’s only right that we as music fans take the time to appreciate it when it does." - Striker Bill

"They are talented, pure and simple. If you listen to any of the songs off of their demo album, you'll recognize Sunjacket as a highly-skilled indie band that enthralls listeners with heartfelt distorted guitar and perfect vocal harmonies." - Jonk Music

"Chicago indie act Sunjacket may be newcomers to the scene and still in the demo stage, but on 'Grandstanders'...one can easily detect that the band have that special something to get the buzz train started." - Mixtape Maestro
