Hydra Melody / Press

"As 2012 comes to a close, we wanted to present one more showcase with some of the best Texas-based indie bands we could find...Headlining will be Austin Vida staff favorite Hydra Melody. We introduced Austin Vida readers to the San Antonio-based sextet in 2009. Often compared to popular bands such as Cursive or Minus The Bear, Hydra Melody fuses together elements of melodic indie rock with progressive rock and is backed with Latin percussion. Hydra Melody perform at midnight."

"Sour Soul will be sharing the stage with Hydra Melody, a 6-piece, experimental/progressive-rock band from San Antonio that brings a fresh twist to contemporary rock. Compared to Kings of Leon, they blend ancient components of rock with strong Latin and jazz sounds that forges a genre all their own. Their shows are accented by Latin conga percussion and intricate drum and guitar playing. They’ve toured the US and have shared stages with Blink 182, Chiodos and The Toadies."

"Hydra Melody has claimed a distinctive musical place that, while offering the familiarity of mainstream pop rock, is truly and uniquely theirs."
