Strangers on a Plane “Wings” Review by Jovial Njinyi

Friday, February 22nd, 2019 by Lindsey Zapata

Strangers on a Plane – Wings

Released: 2018

Rate: 8.8/10

Review by Jovial Njinyi

Wings by Strangers on a Plane, is a really interesting album that boasts sounds of cool indie pop. You can listen to them now on Spotify. Strangers on a Plane have developed a sound similar to a mix between Billie Eilish and Lana del Rey.

The songs on the album are definitely more on the soft soothing side. Track 10, “Wings”, that shares its title with the album, has a slightly more upbeat tempo than the other songs, with a lot more complex instrumental composition and base in the background. But of all the songs, track 5, “Look At Me”, is my personal favorite — considering it was the song that drew me to review the album in the first place. (more…)

Travis McKeveny

Monday, April 7th, 2014 by Rachel

1962727_10202297104323684_867431404_nThe wonderfully talented Travis McKeveny came into the studio with Kat and Rae before his late night coffee house with WLOY on March 13th. He answered some interesting questions about his musical experiences and writing process. In addition to sharing some fun stories about his sister and currently WLOY Staffer Kathleen McKeveny, who had the chance to be in the studio for that experience. The duo was very funny and we thoroughly enjoyed interviewing them. Listen to the full audio below along with his in studio performance of two original songs. Travis debuted his song “First Light” on the show along with the first track off of his first album Last Years Leaves, “The House Where You Live ,” exclusively on Kat and Rae.

Queen B. Interview

Thursday, March 13th, 2014 by Rachel

QueenB smallKat and Rae sat down with QueenEarth, Janice B. and their producer Maurice, who collectively make up QueenB. on February 18th. The talented two piece band puts out harmonious, acoustic tracks that combine  guitar, beautiful vocals and rap. Their songs preach love and acceptance, and are chill-inducing. QueenEarth is a WLOY alum, being a former DJ and staffer, so this visit wasn’t her first rodeo. The interview was laugh filled, and we even learned where their cupcakes allegiance lay. (more…)
