Cranking the emotion (and the volume) comes naturally to Scam Likely

Every week, the State of Sound podcast welcomes an artist from our monthly concert series into the studio to go deep on one of their songs. For more info on the live show, including how to get tickets, visit the event page.

Our guest for this episode is another member of our very first lineup from the relaunched State of Sound back in February: Scam Likely.

The Milwaukee band call themselves an “indie punk thunderstorm,” and multiple sources have dropped the phrase “cult following.” Their music is a reflection on rocky relationships and mental health, balancing the energy of their live shows with more soulful, emotive tracks.

During their State of Sound set, the band announced a forthcoming album, Yolk (which comes out April 12), and nearly blew the roof off with their bombastically emotional energy. Before that roof-blowing performance, Scam Likely lead singer/rhythm guitarist Charlee Grider chatted with me about the source of the energy behind their newest heart-on-sleeve-er, “Nosebleed.”

To hear the conversation and part of Scam Likely’s State of Sound set, use the player at the top of the page or — even better — subscribe and listen to State of Sound in your podcast player of choice. And don’t forget to swing by our event page for tickets to the our next live show April 6 featuring Hanna Simone, JINKSIE, Wire & Nail, and Allison Mahal.
