I have felt that Seattle’s Cairo scene(check it out) has been on the cusp for a while now but I feel so now more than ever. Stephanie doesn’t necessarily lead the pack but they have a record coming out in March-ish? and I really can’t wait. I am a sucker for their modern approach to post punk. They don’t fear using distortions as opposed to reverberations in their sound and I feel that provides an air of youthfulness that most contemporary music is lacking. Their members are in many bands and should be given equal attention if you are into this: M. Women, Secret Colors, Dimples (rip).
Also 2 members run Couple Skate records
