Philadelphia home grown, this week’s featured band is Those People. In 2012, guitarists Daniel DiFranco and Seth Carter joined forces to create something amazing. Complete with hand-clapping beats and captivating lyrics, this six member band is anything but ordinary. Resembling Blood Brothers 2004 release Crimes, Those People have that same soul vibe that you can’t help but groove to.
Only two years in, Those People already have quite a following having played a handful of Philadelphia favorite venues including Milkboy, Kung Fu Neckie, and Northstar Bar. The unveiling of their horror-esque teaser trailer says it all, and fans are anxiously awaiting the November release of their six-song EP, justifyingly named Be Careful What You Wish For. But don’t fret, while you await new tracks Those People have songs available for download on http://thosepeople.bandcamp.com/releases And if you want to see an incredible show, Those People are on the bill with last week’s featured band, Overcoming Gravity, for October’s First Friday Showcase at Connie’s Ric Rac.
Tune in all this week to hear Those People in heavy rotation. You can catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET), and if you like what you hear, PLEASE use the thumbs up/down buttons to voice your opinion!
