Live at Reggie's in Chicago. Indie Rock band on tour. Auto Defiance


here’s what people are saying about the sound.. .


“From East Nashville’s art deco district, the melodic rock quintet sounds more post-Velvet Underground, more post-Guided by Voices, more post-Collective Soul than, say, The Band Perry. Or whatever.   
[their]  new single, “Heart Attack”  is all atmosphere and lustrous guitars.  Lead singer Bradley Boyer has the sort of voice that echoes and rings, his tone both brooding and warm.”
- Alli Marshall , Mountian Xpress (Sep 15, 2012)


“Auto Defiance combines everything we love about the 90′s with their own extraordinary flare. At first the guitars and drums hook you and then Boyer’s voice and lyrics reel you in. Have a listen, I insist.”
- klzook, Furies Magazine (interview)
“‘Heart Attack!’ It’s really good. For the upcoming album?  I really enjoyed that one.”
- Agustina Woodgate (Live Radio Interview), Radio Espacio Estacion
“I have checked out the music and I have to say that it is of rare quality. I find this particular genre so hard to get right but Auto Defiance have nailed it!!!”
- Rob Bailey, Program Director,  Pulse Rated Radio UK
“Today on Balcony TV Nashville…a band with a very full sound…AUTO DEFIANCE…”
- Balcony TV Staff, Balcony TV
“Auto Defiance has a sound that is unique and unlike any I’ve heard before.”
- Jane E. Powell, Eclectic Cuts Magazine    WMTS 90.3  in studio acoustic performance.
“Alternative music that will blow you away! Check this out!”
- Music Managers, Music Xray
“What do you get when you combine guitars, great songwriting, Nashville, indie sentiment, and a bit of ambiance? Auto Defiance. Never have we heard such energetic music with such a chilled timbre. Everything that this band produces sounds like sonic gold,  a mix between tributes to the 90′s and the neo-Velvet Underground sub-culture present in today’s indie rock music. This is a band with a great foundation, and the mix of sounds and lush textures does not disappoint the ears. “
- Indaba Music Staff, Featured Artist Indaba Music (review)
“your songs are very beautiful …. above all “Ghost inside your house” bounce me in the head … a true pop jewel ….”
- Minollo , I DISCHI DEL MINOLLO (Italian Indie Label)
“You can always rely on Auto Defiance to come up with interesting videos for their amazing tunes.
Bottom line they just keep getting better. “
- Bear, Bearly Rambling Music Blog
“Tight alternative band with great lyrics and a lush, ethereal rock sound.”
- Joel Friddell, Music City Circus
“Describing the sound as Indie Rock meets Post Punk (which they do) vastly undersells this band.
What I like about them is the rich sonic textures that grace their songs.”
- Gerard McGarry, Unreality Music (UK)

“Checked out the debut single and it’s awesome! You can definitely hear the influence of the Cure. It takes me back to those Breakfast Club days. It’s definitely worth your ears, so check out their myspace page, you won’t be disappointed!”
- Dj Scorpia , Unsigned/New/Damn Good Undiscovered Artist
