Since the release of the dueling singles “Peace of Mine” and “Daily Battle,” Cincinnati-based indie rock band Carriers has been touring all over the Cincy concert circuit, showing off their melody-driven, smooth, soothing and ambient tidal wave.
Curt Kiser, the band’s frontman, draws on the euphonious synth melodies of the 80’s as inspiration for his music, similar to the way War on Drugs continuously redefine their interpretation of 80’s pop nostalgia.
As a result of the bands growing popularity around Cincinnati, and having been well received at many events around town including Bellwether Music Festival, Carriers are primed for a serious tour in conjunction with their debut album release which is due to be released everywhere in the next few weeks.
This Friday, 8/17, Carriers will join Nashville-based singer/songwriter Caleb Groh at MOTR Pub for a much- anticipated performance. Groh’s style blends indie pop sounds with a surprising folk aesthetic, an unpredictable accompaniment to Kiser’s spacy, rock vibes. Nonetheless, both acts are sure to entertain, and with MOTR’s customary free admission there is nothing to complain about here.
Be sure to get out and see Carriers perform songs off their upcoming album, though you won’t be able to brag, Carriers are already cool. Music starts at 10pm and as always admission is free.
When: August 17, show starts at 10 PM
How much: Free!
