The start of festival season is once again upon us, and one of the first fests of the season has turned into one of the finest. Capitalizing on its location in the path of many SXSW-bound bands, Savannah Stopover's 2017 lineup looks incredibly tempting. If I was going down there myself, these are the bands I'd just about move heaven and earth to try to see. And if you're free between March 9-11, why not head on down to Savannah and see what all the fuss is about for yourself?
Never mind a genre, Georgia duo Cicada Rhythm is purely timeless. Andrea and Dave create magic at every corner, be it with her honey clear vocals or the pair's gently rolling instrumentation. Cicada Rhythm's songs are smart, every breath and every strum made for a purpose and working together to make something utterly lovely.
