Fort Wilson Riot (Minneapolis)
Hailing from Minneapolis, Amy Hager and Jacob Mullis make up the perky-voiced, mellow-mooded Indie Synth Rock duo Fort Wilson Riot. Hager’s agreeable vocals conjure up comparisons to Debbie Harry and the ladies of Wilson Philips. There’s nothing abrasive and everything sexy about her sound. (And yes, Mullis’ voice is plenty appealing, too.) The absolutely gorgeous duo recently posted photos from their latest video shoot from their most recent album, trillun. Expect stocking caps and more when the video for “Hiway” arrives … eventually. Perhaps FWR’s most robotic sounding and yet somehow Justin Timberlake-conjuring track, there’s no way it won’t be interesting.
