Based out of Gainesville (rock city), FL, Southpaw is a four-piece, indie / emo / post-hardcore band. Inspired by bands like Brand New, Sunny Day Real Estate, Minus the Bear, Further Seems Forever, Boy Sets Fire, and Ghosts & Vodka (to name a few), Southpaw's sound blends emotionally-charged lyrics, shifting time signatures, dynamic chord structures, with boom booms and taps taps. The band is fronted by lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Josh (Along the Sidelines, Turn Thieves, and Fever Dreams), on lead guitar is Jason (Piano Tree, Fever Dreams, and The Lunars), on Bass and backing vocals is Bo (Bo Coker), and Kenneth (Weeze, Eve of November, and thatshisface) is on drums.
In the summer of 2016, the band released it's first demo, "Rookie Season." The demo is available for free download at https://southpawfl.bandcamp.com/releases
Southpaw will be returning to the studio in summer 2017 recording their upcoming E.P.
