According to my research via the Nashville Scene search engine, you are reading what is believed to be not only the first Critics Pick, but also first purposeful mention of Halo Stereo in our fine publication. This isnt to say they do or dont deserve more press from us than theyve gotten, but rather to point out how even the hardest working bands bands that get radio airplay, props from Fuse, win contests by Budweiser and hover about our radar for upwards of eight years by constantly subverting our collective notion of cool sometimes go unnoticed locally. But whos to say you, the reader, wouldnt dig on Halo Stereos self-described alternative/progressive modern rock, which throws an electro beat or two between meaty slabs of bro-fi riffage, manly monster choruses and a dash of Brit-pop harmonies? Its a fine fit for 102.9 The Buzzs New Music Showcase with Day of Fire and Paper Cut Massacre.
