18. AVENUE BEAT
Avenue Beat are three girls from Quincy, Illinois, who grew up ingesting social media platforms and theater groups – and turned into the notes of a chord that lands somewhere between Taylor Swift ascending and Billie Eilish at her most real. The genzennial collective of Sami Bearden, Savana Santos and Sam Backoff are strong, smart, fun – in love with life, each other and getting on with it…fresh face of new feminism, while blowing off being told who girls are supposed to be.
Avenue Beat’s debut self-titled EP is available now via The Valory Music Co./Tape Room Records and was co-produced by lead singer Savana, David Garcia and Ashley Gorley. With the stretched staccato vowels of the hilarious self-empowering “Delight,” sisters-sticking-together euphoria of “Be A Bro,” angst-rejecting post-breakup “Ruin That For Me” or their self-induced euphoria of “Broke,” Avenue Beat beckons listeners with pillows of narcotic harmony, glistening melody and lyrical truths.
Avenue Beat recently joined CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2020.
