BEST NEW ACT + BEST POP-ROCK ACT: Other Bones

 bmp_New-PopRock_OtherBones_

Featuring the powerful vocals of Loretta Allen (holy shit, girl), synthesizers and electronic production from Andrew Mead, and spare, driving guitar by Eric Bruce, the Other Bones are a soulfully contemporary addition to Portland’s music scene. From the live performance videos released in the fall of 2011 to the five-track EP released last year to their soaring Live at the State Theater recording that came out this summer, this trio knows just how to whet our appetite so that we’re aching for more — more songs, more shows, more power-dance-pop deliciousness. We’re anxiously awaiting their forthcoming full-length project, expected sometime in 2014. | theotherbones.tumblr.com
