Detroit breakout band Mike Mains & the Branches is the musical version of a classic Ford Thunderbird. Their sound is simultaneously sleek, aggressive and retro, while embodying the quintessential American vibrato of the city they call home. The band’s leader, Mike Mains, roars with immense vocal strength, and the band’s songwriting is astute and personal.
When Mike Mains & the Branches visited New York, we immediately booked them for a Buzzsession at the formidable Mirrortone Studios. We decided to switch up the musical arrangement, and challenged Mike to play two of his favorite tracks solo and acoustic. The result is a mesmerizing display of raw energy that hits the listener right between the eyes.
‘Buzzsessions’ is an original series of live music videos produced by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we capture footage of our favorite bands as they record alternate studio-quality versions of their songs.
