ROCK - Indie
Merging the North Virginian penchant for melody with the explosiveness of Chicago rock, Brice Woodall writes between worlds. Originally from Newport News, VA, Woodall moved to Chicago in 2005, where he has since cultivated a distinct brand of muscular, synth-tipped indie pop. The roots of Woodall's music lie as deeply within underground electronica as they do within his more traceable predecessors: the '90s rock innovations of The Flaming Lips, Grandaddy, and Sparklehorse. His signature drum machines skitter against full-blooded rock instrumentation as they coil together into tight, infectious progressions.
