Featured Artist: Interest Relief

The story of Interest Relief plays somewhat like a fairytale: two eccentric kids meet, fall in love, grow to become high school sweethearts, get married, wake up one morning, look at each other and decide to start an electro-indie-pop band. Husband and wife duo Brad and Jennifer McConnell have added another dimension to their marriage: an unapologetically thoughtful and off-kilter band with a knack for finding unique ways to innovate and be creative in the studio. Their latest album, The Fire In The Flies, is an introspective affair sprinkled with warm synth tones that drift in and out of sweeping, epic guitar-and-drum interplay. The band’s track “Promises” was recently used in this Guide to the Eddie clip. Dig it:
