Austin A2W: The Authors

authorsAfter receiving their new EP in the mail recently, we immediately found fairly new Austin band The Authors to be a solid choice for our artist to watch feature.  The local outfit cites their influences as New Order, The Cure, and Phoenix which can all be heard in the sounds of the band.  Some are quick to call them indie-pop, but The Authors are quick to refute such a confining label and warn that their sound doesn’t end there.  We tend to agree.  Check out the band’s catchiest tune “Put it On” below which appears on the aforementioned debut self-titled EP available on CD Baby or at your local record store.  You can catch the band live July 23rd at Spider House or August 20th at Mohawk.
