Detroit Proud Playlist: Week of 10/7

This week’s playlist is loaded with enough singer-songwriters to satisfy even the hungriest of musical hearts – every style from country to Americana to pop – there’s a track for everyone on the list! We’ve also thrown in a few indie-rock bands to balance things out, and a few Detroit old-time favorites, too.

The Oscillating Fan Club

DETROIT PROUD: The Oscillating Fan Club

Their sound is not like anything you’ve heard before – especially not here in Detroit. They blend together, in perfect harmony…a mash-up of ‘70s rock and ‘60s pop, maybe a bit of a psychedelic flair, with goofy lyrics and captivating guitar melodies. Imagine if you took the gritty-bluesy rock from The Black Keys, blended in the resonance of the album Disraeli Gears by Cream (make sure you give “Sympathetic Strings” a listen), and then topped it with a poppy beat similar to The Zombies. To be fair, that only paints a small picture of who The Oscillating Fan Club are – one of Metro Detroit’s most promising up-and-coming bands.

Inspiring and optimistic is what we were going for.
