Scan Hopper

Oh, yes, Austin is the city for loads of great independent bands, and Scan Hopper is one of those bands.  I recently listened to their new ep release Mariana Bridges, and it had some great stuff. The band definitely has a unique sound for this day and age. It’s not canned music. My favorite song on the album is Twisted Air, which reminded me of some of the new wave songs that came out in the 1980’s. It’s fun to listen to and it’s fast paced. And the lyrics made me think of a tornado. Yeah, I know it’s kind of a weird thing to think of, but it did!

The song Mariana Bridges starts out with acoustic guitar, and then adds some electric. And when you add the vocals, it’s a really interesting piece with a little bit of a psychedelic edge to it.  But you can check it out for yourself.

Scan Hopper's page on bandcamp states they are Austin’s answer to a question that was never asked. And if this is the band’s music is the result of unanswered question, what would they be able to produce if someone asked them a question? I’m sure that it would be great! Be sure to check out their site so that you can listen to their music, and purchase a copy of Scan Hopper’s new or old music through their page on bandcamp.
