Out on the Streets is a band from Seattle, WA that strives to connect with an audience through their anthemic, bold, and unabashedly direct brand of indie rock. By constantly weaving elements of punk, dance, and 60's pop into their music, the band's sound has drawn comparisons to The Arctic Monkeys, The Smiths, and The Strokes. They also understand dynamics and are unafraid to take their foot off the gas pedal at any moment in the set. Their 2012 "We Buy Gold" EP, produced by Casey Bates (Portugal the Man, Gatsby's American Dream, Isles & Glaciers) displays a mastery of both delicate and exposed melodies ("Our Rome Fell") as well as sonic fireworks ("Brotherhood").
The band has stayed true to its mission through challenges and lineup changes, and currently consists of Kelly McShane (vocals), Adam Eastlack (bass), Jeremiah Robinson (guitar), John Velazquez (guitar), and Mike Franklin (drums). They believe that catchy, loud, and anthemic rock and roll with a little style and swagger will never cease to connect human beings. Out on the Streets strives to do just that, with a classy, yet full-of-grit aesthetic that is entirely their own.
