Shaylee is a band fronted by Elle Archer, a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter based in Portland, Oregon. Performing everything herself on record, Shaylee comes alive in a live setting as a tight, dynamic power trio, eschewing the grandiose arrangements of her recorded output in exchange for lean, mean, and energetic rock’n’roll. Toeing the line between power pop, post-rock, and psych-rock, Shaylee’s music feels immediately familiar yet totally unique, scratching many an itch for avid fanatics of guitar music with a distinctly queer edge. 

The Apricots are an emerging Portland project serving their own sweet, glossy sounds that are hard to pin down. Their music is influenced from all directions, from indie rock to alternative funk while finding their center in sweet-like-honey vocal harmonies. Topped off with melodic bass and driving percussion, The Apricots want to you tearing up one minute and dancing the next.
