The Phantom Friends
Progressive Indie Rock from Charlotte
North By North
Formed in 2012, North by North is the sweat-fueled rock & roll dream of two childhood friends from the south side of Chicago. Their music was forged through years of teen angst, twenty-something alienation and a profound belief that rock music can be genuinely clever and inventive. It’s a sound glued together by melodic hooks, soaring vocals, crushing guitar, bombastic drums and the kind of untethered energy that has won crowds over hundreds of shows and dozens of festivals across three countries.
To call Nate Girard (guitar, vocals) and Kendra Blank (drums) veterans of the road would be a massive understatement. They have toured full-time since 2016 and have played over 650 shows throughout the US, Canada and UK.
Charlotte-based four-piece, delivering highbrow songwriting and low volume funk to audiences across the southeast. From the trailer to the top shelf, WAG’s high-energy, self-reflexive songwriting is at once silly and substantive; carefree and careful; heartless and heartfelt.
