American Authors | Review & Interview

Brooklyn, NY band American Authors graced the 303’s own Larimer Lounge last night as the opener for Lousiana indie rock band Royal Teeth.

Where have you been all my life? That’s all I have to say. These guys have amazing chemistry.

American Authors put on a show that was passion-loaded and one hundred percent awesome. I was dancing and singing along side stage - and so was everyone else. Simply the way they interact with one another on stage makes them a force to be reckoned with.

They bring a unique sound to indie rock. With banjo riffs and animated drum beats, they don’t perform songs - they perform anthems. Their music is relatable and honest, and that’s much more than most bands can give you these days. They are a refreshing act to witness as they allow equal contribution from all of the members. They exude appreciation and humility - and they totally rock. Seriously. I don’t know what’s wrong with you if you don’t want to dance your ass off when you hear these guys.

I had the pleasure of chatting with the boys before they played - and believe me, they are just as lovely and genuine as their music makes them out to be.  Enjoy getting to know Zac, Dave, Matt, and James of American Authors - and keep your eyes peeled for their first full length album coming out soon!
