"9 SXSW Bands That Blew Us Away Unexpectedly"

We Were The States

These guys sounded so good that they cut through the din of SXSW from 100 yards away and grabbed my ears’ attention. We Were the States played in a tiny room in the back of Headhunters and performed like it was their debut at the Fillmore. The jolting combination of classic and indie rock primes the band from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for greater things. I’ve since listened to We Were the States’ recordings, and don’t think they do the band justice. See them live and you won’t be disappointed. –Keith Axline - Wired.com

After releasing two full-length EPs with his band We Were The States, and building a great reputation for live performances at SXSW, JK Webb has returned to garage rock with his first EP alongside his closest friends who form “The Pleasers.” With comparisons of much of the WWTS music to bands such as The Walkmen and The Black Keys, It seems JK Webb has found his own sound away from WWTS that really is a sound all unto itself.

So from JK’s bleeding heart of rock twang and slang came a barrage of new songs and sounds. With these sounds a brotherhood was formed with “The Pleasers” and together they have written and recorded five amazing tracks for JK Webb & The Pleasers EP entitled “Behind The Screen Door.” Rock & Roll with lots of soul, and now you have yourself a garage rock EP that really does hint to something very special.
