Listen: “Chill Out” – Barcode Pony

Indy’s own Barcode Pony releases first single, “Chill Out”

Bringing some local representation to TGG with today’s track, the first single from Indianapolis-based Barcode Pony is one for the young and the restless. Infused with infectious blues guitar and buoyed by an incredibly funky bass line, “Chill Out” reminds us to hurry up and wait. As they say, anything worth having is worth waiting for, and this track mimics that sentiment. From working a 9-5, to bumper-to-bumper traffic on I-465, “Chill Out” reminds us to do exactly that.

Plucked from a flourishing garden of musical influence, such as funk, R&B, blues and pop, “Chill Out” precedes Barcode Pony’s second single, titled “Perception,” set to release on June 3rd. The first single is emblematic of the patience needed while attempting to maintain some semblance of autonomy in a very success-driven society. Written for anyone who may be in between plans, “Chill Out” also encourages us to clip the strings that connect us to the things that don’t serve our purpose– if it doesn’t work, fix it, and if you don’t like it, change it. “Misfit, therefore not the right match,” McDermott-Sipe sings.

Comprised of Elias McDermott-Sipe, Isaac Vining, and Rowan Stewart, the band hopes to perform at the Garfield Park Art and Music Festival in Indianapolis on June 25th.

Listen: quinnie’s “touch tank”

I have butterflies. Wonderful lilac and periwinkle and rosy butterflies flutter in circles around my heart, waking me from my dark dreams, dragging me into the sunlight, dancing me into summer. It’s been a while since I’ve felt love within a song. I’ve only been listening to melancholy music. Angrier guitar riffs, sad lyrics. It […]

Listen: “For a Moment You’re Mine” – Little Monarch

It satisfied something in me for the moment, and personally, it felt important to put out there and just not care how much attention it got. I can picture a flock of monarchs fluttering around in the bright morning sun. Birds chirping in the distance. I am dreaming and white sun peers through blinds, wasting […]
