"New York-based musician and singer/songwriter Carter Brady has recorded with bands ranging in styles from alt rock, blues, jazz, and lo-fi. His upcoming solo debut record however is pure feel-good indie rock. Last year Brady shared the first single from the record, “Chasing Vampires” before following with a remix earlier this year and now, a new video for the track, premiering with Under the Radar.

Brady’s latest single is classic joyous indie, replete with boyish vocals, crunchy syncopated guitar lines, and a summery mellow vibe. Brady delivers the love-struck lyrics with a disarming charm, even throwing in a few winking self-aware lines—“I would take the shambles from our past/And make it into albums that will last.” Meanwhile, he also gets an assist on the instrumental side with a feature from Spin Doctors bassist Mark White. All of this coalesces with the accompanying video, putting the easygoing appeal at the center of the song on full display with home-recorded clips and a simple DIY feel.

 

Brady says: 'It’s a huge honor to be given the opportunity to premiere my music video for ‘Chasing Vampires’ with Under the Radar and be in the presence of so many great artists and bands. I grew up listening to bands like Phoenix, Tame Impala, The Raconteurs, and many of the other bands who have been on the front cover issue, so it means a lot that I was chosen among the many indie artists who are actively looking for platforms to get exposure for their music.' Check out the song and video below and be on the watch for Carter Brady’s upcoming debut..."

"If there’s any indie rock artist that can easily create a nostalgic 90’s vibe that makes you feel like you’re traveling back in time, it’s Carter Brady. Former NY musician, singer and songwriter, Brady is now gracing the Nashville scene and bringing unique alternative flare to country music city. Drawing lyrical and melodic inspiration from popular 90’s phenomenons like Nirvana, Radiohead and Pearl Jam, Brady’s latest and second studio album, ‘Blue Reverb’, puts a unique twist on the indie rock sound. This project perfectly displays Brady’s undeniable talent and ear for cohesive production flares that transform the audience’s listening into a heightened experience that will make you wanna roll the windows down in the car and scream the lyrics at the top of your lungs.

With the past year we’ve all had, ‘Blue Reverb’ doesn’t fall short of conveying that we are on the right track back to “happier times” with the combination of electric guitar and drums rounding out an electric, ever so familiar punk/rock vibe. The addition of vocal effects like echo and reverb are stylistic touches that transform throughout the transition of each song into the next. Lyrically, Brady’s honesty, vulnerability and thorough self reflection stand out from the crowd because of their direct reflection of the thoughts that are in his head.

Titles such as ‘I Was But Innocent’, ‘Amatuer’, and ‘Running Out Of Time’ can be creatively interpreted as Brady’s internal struggle with the pressures and time constraints of being young and the responsibilities taken on as an up and coming artist in the music industry. The importance of the message this album conveys is that it is cohesively relatable amongst a vast variety of audiences of all ages. Conclusively, ‘Blue Reverb’ speaks for itself in the sense that it makes a strong stylistic, lyrical and melodic statement of elements that other up and coming and mainstream artists alike can learn from."
