SPELLING is a band out of Boston, Ma. We began our musical journey January 1st 2014. It was a trip. We're still tripping...

Spelling are:
Jordan Hislop- Guitar/VOX
Paul Vaitkus- Bass
Jeff King- Drums/VOX
"Birdwatching...are rather quickly becoming one of the most must-see bands in or around Boston. The threesome play a high-energy indie rock style that's equal parts earnest and vulnerable. They dub themselves 'nervous underdog pop' and that seems to be pretty accurate, although perhaps not quite as accurate as how my ten year old sums up the sound of Birdwarching's latest EP, Night Physics -- 'these guys are really good. They're interesting, because they're loud, but they're not like RAH-RAH-RAH-RAH loud like a lot of other rock bands.'"

"From Boston, Mass. This solid indie rock band's ep Night Physics came out this past summer. 3 piece unit James, Andrea & Alex have a really well put together sound with a female lead vocal and nice harmonies."
Birdwatching, comprised of James (percussion), Andrea (vocals/bass), and Alex (guitar/vocals) had some success last year with their three-song EP Hard Feelings. Less than a year later they are back with a worthy Follow up entitled Night Physics. The band builds on their chemistry they displayed on Hard Feelings.

The songs are fun, fast and catchy. They keep it simple, embracing an early '90s no frills alternative vibe. The hooks are the best I heard from the band so far.

...The songs on this EP are tight with no extra fat. They feel like a full three-piece which I will say is at least partially due to the fantastic drumming. This band continues to flourish in recent years and seem to be hitting their stride."
