Challenger: Up For It

An indie band which combines electronic music and synth pop, as well as draws influence from artists like Peter Gabriel, Challenger have been around since 2012. Fronted by producer/songwriter John Ross, the group recently released their sophomore album, Back To Bellvue. Their 2012 debut, The World Is Too Much For Me, has a different, poppier sound than their newer record. Challenger will host a CD release show at Union Hall in New York City on May 30.
