With influences that span across the decades, The Relics have reinterpreted the elements of classic rock and brought them into a modern context. Standing tall from the streets of Atlanta, their nostalgic-yet-fresh sound is characterized by catchy hooks, rich vocal harmonies, groovy back beats, and melodic guitar leads. Lyrically, their music has a confessional quality that feels reassuring. The band consists of Joseph Pieper (vocals, guitar), Andrew Cary (bass, vocals), Sean Maloney (lead guitar), and Greg Washington (drums).
Referred to as a combination of "The Beatles meets Green Day," their sound often toggles between Classic Britt rock and 90s Alt rock. Some other influences include: The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jet, Oasis, Billy Joel, and Pink Floyd.
The Relics released their flagship single, Standing Tall, in 2021. A song about triumphing in the face of adversity and life's challenges, it's the perfect anthem for the post-COVID world. Listen to this song just one time, and you will be singing along by the second chorus!
