Eastern Block

Band Alternative




This band has no press


Past Palace - CD 2009
"Wingwalker/Terrible Fantastic" - 7" Vinyl 2011



Eastern Block was formed in Nashville, TN in 2007. Their music meanders between the ethereal and hard-hitting, from shoegazer and art-rock to edgy alternative. Singer Aaron Ahlstrom’s tenor vocals navigate deftly between melancholy disaffection and almost-delirious aggression, and bandmates Jonathan Williams (drums), Jon Shearer (guitar), and Sean Savacool (bass) provide an exceptionally creative backdrop to the melodies.
Driven by enthusiastic word-of-mouth promotion and their transparently ecstatic creative energy, Eastern Block has earned a reputation for sophisticated songwriting, catchy arrangements, and veteran stage presence that have earned them a loyal following in Nashville.
A few highlights from the past year for Eastern Block:
* Won the Nashville 2011 Music City Mayhem Contest (best Nashville band)
