Described as “a force of nature” by fans, Since Antarctica emerged on the D.C.-area alt-rock scene ready, willing, and able to rock your face off. Their high-energy shows rivet audiences with musically sophisticated original songs performed with passion, virtuosity, and fun. Their debut EP, Aurorae made its release to a sold-out audience in February 2012, and garnered the band nominations for the Washington Area Music Association’s 2012 Debut Recording and Modern Rock Recording Wammie Awards.
Shannon Woods commands audiences' attention with soulful, powerhouse vocals (no twee whispering here) and a captivating on-stage presence. Frantzie -- the man needs but one name -- brings an irresistible bassline as well as complex, emotionally raw songwriting and vocal harmonies. And drummer Chip Burden backs it all up with solid, frenetic beats to help ensure that each and every face present is thoroughly rocked off.
