Introducing: TEAM*

TEAM

TEAM* is the perfect example of what happens when members of already successful bands come together for a new, musically challenging project.

The Dallas, TX based band was formed in a secretive way earlier this year when their first single ‘Am I Alive‘ was released. One could only guess who the members were. Of course, it was all cleared up later on and we got a bunch of amazing musicians: Caled Turman (Forever The Sickest Kids), Rico Garcia (touring member of FTSK), Bryan Donahue (formerly of Boys Like Girls, now a touring member of All Time Low) and Jay Vilardi (The Almost).

The music is very different from what fans are used to from FTSK, The Almost, and BLG. However, thanks to the influences of those bands, it’s great to see how things came together in this new formation. Hearing only a handful of songs so far, each of them is different from one another and moves between different styles of the alternative/indie line. ‘Human War Machine‘ and the last third of ‘Excalibur‘ stands out the best to us. If you’re a fan of Vampire Weekend, Imagine Dragons or Morain, then you will love TEAM* as well.

Despite the fact that each members already have a name in the industry and a decent fan following, TEAM* seem like a very promising new band and something that is taken seriously by the people behind it. They have already supported Imagine Dragons, and are due to go on tour with legendary Third Eye Blind next month, while also self-releasing their first EP via an Indiegogo campaign.
