Former drummer of Montreal indie group Islands, Aaron Harris entered the Brooklyn scene in 2009 when he started Steel Phantoms. Jesse Newkirk soon joined the band, and the combination of pointed songcrafting and dynamic stage shows has been dazzling crowds since. The Harris/Newkirk duo melds elements from the history of proto-punk, alternative, and modern indie to reach wide-ranging territory unexpected from a two-piece. Nevertheless, Harris’s fervid vocals and exhilarating drumming joined with Newkirk’s aggressive, ethereal guitar make for a definitive sound throughout.
Sundress is an American Psychedelic-Pop band, formed in Denton, Texas in 2010.

Sundress was created by principle members Ryan McAdams, bassist Drew McCary and guitarist Kennon Talley. After several names (This Old House, ODYSSEY), due to legal matters and band member changes, keyboardist Jim Harrington and drummer Brack Cantrell were brought in and now make up the bands' current lineup.

Immediately, Sundress started to carve out their spot in the music world by receiving copious amounts of attention from the media and recognition as 'Best New Act' out of North Texas. Since their inception the band has played almost every major festival in Texas, supporting some of the most important new artists and even received a nod from The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne.

Their brand of ethereal dream-pop marries many different influences ranging from Pink Floyd and The Beatles but with the modern flavor of Slowdive and Sparklehorse.

Sundress has had the fortune to share the stage with acts such as Washed Out, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Mister Heavenly, The Clientele, Vetiver, Tame Impala, and Stardeath and White Dwarfs.
