Basic Printer at The High Watt

Basic Printer at The High Watt

On Sunday, August 13th, synth-pop band Basic Printer graced the stage at The High Watt, setting the tone for an epic night.  With the first few notes, the room ceased its conversations, and all eyes turned to composer Jesse Gillenwalters.  Dubbing his songs "synth pop for four-year olds," a readily excited audience of adults began dancing to quirky, lively, and moveable music that Nashville Offbeat was happy to experience!

Basic Printer is the epitome of high energy, sounding like a mix of the best parts of Twenty-One Pilots and Matt & Kim, with a fun-loving punk energy.  The foursome filled the air with dreamy synths, wave-like slide guitar, pounding drum beats, and awesome vocal samples that blew their audience away.  Prefacing one tune by saying, "this is a song about a girl," Jesse launched everyone into an enthralling work of art, because, "sometimes you've got to write some orchestral synth punk when the girl you like doesn't like you back!"  Very true, sir, very true.

Catchy, fun, and energetic; it's easy to see that these four guys love what they do.  Basic Printer will be releasing a new single titled "Snore Captain" on Friday, August 18th.  Nashville Offbeat had the chance to take a listen ahead of time, and we feel certain that you're going to love it!  Go check out Basic Printer's website, and make sure to give them a follow on Facebook and Instagram.
