Nashville’s talent pool was once constricted to the genre of country music. In recent years, numerous break-out indie artists have busted through that genre stereotype and created a home for many amazing indie rock stars. So much so, that it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to cut through the noise and stand out from the rest. With a cool, garage-pop sound that radiates the same vibes as 90s rock, The Lonely Biscuits are the band that does just that.

Early after their formation in a Belmont University dorm room back in 2011, the band entered the College Battle of the Bands and won the Southeast regional title. A constant need for touring started soon after, and never really stopped. Despite having never released an album, only EPs up until this point, the band has developed quite the following. It’s difficult to not like them, the trio consists of college friends, Grady Wenrich, Sam Gidley, and Nick Byrd, and together they have an electric energy they harness into all of their performances. These performances have gained so much attention that they’ve deservedly played at almost all major festivals around the country and now Rhythm N’ Blooms.

With such a full touring schedule, it is hard to believe they’ve had time to create an album, but with much anticipation, they will release their debut album The Universe in You, on March 30th. Cage the Elephant’s Nick Bockrath, teamed up with the group to produce what is sure to be a phenomenal debut. The first released single from The Universe in You, “Blue Glass,” has already landed on Spotify’s playlist, Feel-Good Indie Rock, right where it belongs. The song, like most of their EPs, feels so reminiscent of 90s chill rock, that it does in fact “feel good.”

When they came to Pretentious Beer Co. last September, the concert ended up being, arguably, the rowdiest and energetic night the venue has experienced. They truly know how to engage and amplify a crowd, no matter how big or small; making their set one you really should not miss at Rhythm N’ Blooms.
