"WDVX Blue Plate Special w/ Bela Fleck and Shortwave Society"

...Also playing at the Blue Plate today was a freshly formed, Knoxville-grown band called Shortwave Society. The band features some of the guys from "Same as it Ever Was" and two girls from Norwegian Wood, the String Quartet Tribute to the Beatles. They've put together their incredibly creative forces to produce a unique and engaging sound.

They're playing tonight at Barley's in the Old City if you'd like to check them out, but don't expect anything run-of-the-mill from 'em.



EP - Self-titled
LP - Voyeur- Due Out Feb. 2010



Shortwave Society fuses elements from orchestral and electronic soundscapes to create a unique accompaniment to their off-kilter pop songs. Violin, cello, and a sea of vocals weave intricate tapestries while guitar and pianos pulse, and electronic bleeps and blips fill every nook and cranny of your subconscious. These ladies and gents host a post-modern sojourn through jazz, pop, and chamber music traditions; equally at home in the dance club or the concert hall alike.
