Scale Model / Bio

Scale Model is an indie rock/pop band based in Nashville, TN. They combine complex instrumental structure with unique, catchy vocal melodies to create a sound that transcends the staples of pop. Dave built their clear, lucite, light-up guitars (he's a luthier - www.scalemodelguitars.com)

"If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing Scale Model yet, let us be the first to tell you: you’re in for a treat. The Nashville four-piece plays an infectious blend of synth melodies and danceable drum beats, and tops it all of with some of the best female vocals Music City has to offer."
-No Country for New Nashville

"Scale Model certainly seems inspired by New Romanticism, with four-on-the-floor beats, positive-minded, ambitious content and saccharine, synth-driven progressions."
-Nashville Scene

"...Scale Model uses New Wave’s synthesis of propulsive rhythms from krautrock and disco as a foundation...letting Rox’s vocal melodies float on top like Nena or “Heart of Glass”-era Debbie Harry."
-Nashville Scene

"[Megan] Rox’s more self-assured vocals have become a revelation. It’s not just that her singing is so delectable and angelic on this brand new EP, but on songs like the wondrous “Ground Beneath My Feet” (and the great “Set Me Free,” from their also-excellent 2010 Set Me Free E.P.), her delivery and words sound inspiring. And on closing tracks “Mindreader” and “Impression,” her voice soars. What a lovely record!"
-The Big Takeover
