The Keystones are an alternative pop trio based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Born in Waukesha, the very same place as the electric guitar, the members of this unique, out-of-the-box group hail from the golden era of grunge guitar, one that’s full of driving tones and hypnotizing garage beats that dance between Brit-indie-rock and new-age modern rock sounds. They aim to make the town they grew up in (nicknamed ‘Guitar City’) proud.
“Well every night and every day I always seem to fall a little short.”
The new single “Time Will Tell” is an indie-pop, feel-good song that gets right to the point from the start. With introspective lyrics, relatable themes of self-doubt, rediscovery, and the unknown journeys the future holds, the band explains, “these lyrics are synonymous to our band as a whole, as our paths have ebbed and flowed. We’ve been through many changes, hardships, and amazing times – but only ‘Time Will Tell’ what’s next.”
The Keystones’ upcoming independent release sets the stage for a new, bright, poppy era for the three-piece. Focusing inwards on their unique individual vocals, this quickly rising indie-alt outfit has rocked out with modern-rock faves like Cleopatrick, Reignwolf and Dirty Honey and are setting the stage for an exciting summer ‘21. This new alt-pop single pairs perfectly with a summer of reconnection, reunion, and release.
After the release of “Time Will Tell”, the band is set to produce several other upcoming singles, influenced heavily by bands like Catfish & The Bottlemen and Royal Blood. Over the course of the next few months, they plan to finish a single with heavy-hitting producer Andrew Baylis.
