Death On Two Wheels

Atlanta, GA

Frontman Trae Vedder's grit-encrusted vocals animate this crew’s Southern Rock jams and inject a little psychedelic spice into its Skynyrd base. The Atlanta quintet’s debut EP, Separation of Church and Fate, has converted many a listener, including a Paste reviewer who name-checks everyone from Chris Robinson and Gary Rossington to Duane Allman and Kings of Leon. Maybe, but the lush Pop of “Sweet Love” reveals a band capable of transcending its more obvious touchstones. Bring on a full-length, guys.

Dig: Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special with balls, Kings of Leon. (JG)
