The Antennas are a power pop band from Nashville, Tennessee. Comprised of brothers Layne and Landon Ihde fronting a classic power trio completed by drummer/producer Mark Niemiec. Their sound is influenced by a mix of of classic rock & powerpop from the big names - The Who, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin - to the alternative pop classics like Matthew Sweet, Superdrag and Sloan. The Antennas self-titled debut album balances wide-eyed raucous optimism with subtle commentary on the posturing nature of being in a band. From the opening air-raid siren of A Call to Arms to the closing heart-on-their-sleeves chorus of Stop, Look, Listen, The Antennas take you on undulating excursion of pure pop rock pleasure. The strong melodies and air-guitar riffs lead the way but know when to lay back. The bass thunders along but seemingly from out of nowhere becomes the melody line.

The drums slam and skip and slam again. Keyboards add subtle texture - weaving, layering and enriching both the harmony and melody in a distinctly un-digital way. Layne sings lead vocal, plays guitar and keyboards. Landon sings backup, plays bass guitar and keyboards. Mark provides the driving force and rhythmic foundation of the band from his hybrid drum-stool-cum-producer-chair at the back.

And he sings too. All 3 members contribute to the songwriting process and each adds a unique perspective to the sound. Layne leans toward the 80's New Wave with hints of his early childhood in both the vocal melodies and synth lines. Landon channels classic retro "British Invasion" sounds with his tight punchy-yet-melodic basslines and falsetto background vocals. Mark blends the two with a modern take on pure rock rhythms and contemporary studio production. Their debut album, The Antennas, is released by Popjinx throughout Europe in 2010. www.theantennas.com Read more on Last.fm.
