New Wave Indie Rock
Guitar driven electrorock duo with 80's new wave + 90's indie rock vibes.
When We Met is an indie rock duo with a punky new wave twist that deliver fun original music that rocks!
Bryan is the king of guitar riffs and Melissa is on bass, with a beautifully accessible and relatable voice. The duo creates diversity by trading off on lead vocals, experimenting with songwriting and bending sounds. Their unique sounds are layered throughout the music with keyboards and drums, played by the two members in the studio then programed for their live performances with the assistance of a manikin head named Viola.
"When We Met is a stand out favorite of mine in the new wave, alternative, & experimental genres of recent. This was the first full set I had the chance of seeing them and they were mind bogglingly good” - Lysergic Sound Department
"Their chemistry was infectious and their sound highly energetic, often danceable, a mix of late 80’s New Wave and mid 90’s Indie Rock. Both of them shared vocal duties and sang about everything from women’s rights to their own personal demons." - Freeform Portland
"These two have undeniable chemistry together!" - Lysergic Sound Department
"This Portland, OR, duo brings that great new wave/punk touch in a manner similar to the B-52’s and DEVO with that Pixies attitude thrown in. Get off your ass and dance your blues away." - Audio Fuzz
"When We Met brings a loving dynamic back into rock." - The Deli Portland
