Cowboy Indian Bear composes deft and brainy indie pop with party-down beats and lots of melodic left turns. Points of reference include Death Cab and Architecture in Helsinki, but members Marty Hillard, C.J. Calhoun, and Beau Bruns are digging deep into the well to come up with something fresh. The Noise FM is one of Lawrence's standout acts, playing a tight-as-hell brand of riff-heavy rock that recalls acts like Muse and Placebo. Check out our podcast preview of the group's debut album "Dream of the Attack". Opener It's True is a forward-thinking indie band from Omaha.
