The By Gods
The By Gods
If it feels like Nashville’s The By Gods are trying to drill through your skull to plant their hook- laden songs in your your grey matter, that’s precisely the point. Squalls of feedback interrupting repetitive chords signaling the return to a chorus, it’s what we’ve come to recognize as the formula; a recipe for loud/quiet/loud. On their latest outing, Phone Calls, The By Gods have bucked such formulae by purposely pushing the repetition.

The By Gods, composed of Tye Hammonds and husband and wife duo, Natalie and George Pauley, sound at times to meld into a single organism. This is certainly the result of their skills being honed by a steady touring regimen. Tightening the screws an extra turn on an already tight unit seems to have allowed the band to loosen up; favoring mid-tempo chugging to a frantic burnout.

Deezy and Alex are Sad Baxter. They live in Nashville. They met when Deezy left a note on Alex's door because she had no friends. They dated, and now they don't. Deezy still has no friends.

Inspired by grungy, heavy, melodic, mostly loud rock music (Nirvana, Veruca Salt, Hole, etc) Deezy stole her mom's guitar as a teenager in NJ and began her ~*journey*~ of writing angst-filled songs of discontent. Alex played drums in hardcore bands in PA growing up, and the two joined forces when they realized they were both huge idiots. They want to party with you, but in a sad, loud, La Croix/KitKatBar kinda way.
