Female-fronted post-hardcore band Fine Fine Titans is premiering their first single, “Mistress,” today with HM Magazine. The band was originally conceived as a musical outlet for husband and wife team Jenn and Evan Bartlett, later adding guitarist Brit Herron after shifting through some other members as they established their sound. The Grand Rapids-based band will be releasing their debut album, Renaissance, before the end of the year.

The couple met in 2007 after vocalist Jenn’s band performed in the hometown of now-husband Evan. The band, as Fine Fine Titans, officially formed in 2010. Jenn Bartlett spoke about her lyrical inspiration:

“I’m driven by the natural energy and chemistry that not only flows through people but also connects us to animals and nature. I’m a dreamer. I’m inspired by change, and those who are impassioned enough to make positive strides despite hardships.”

Jam the song below!

The band has also covered Glassjaw’s “Tip Your Bartender,” which you can play below.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
