Human Resources with Thirsty Curses

Human Resources is an American indie-pop band from Charleston, SC. Formed in 2015 by Dries Vandenberg, Aaron Utterback, Paul Chelmis, and Matt Zutell, HR quickly adopted a unique role in the blossoming Charleston music scene as a more pop-centric counterpart to the neo-southern and indie rock acts prevalent in the area at the time.

The band’s debut single “Queen” and the subsequent L.P. En Route (2015) were released to positive local reviews, earning noteworthy traction on Spotify and other streaming services. The debut played a key role in earning HR the “Electronic/Experimental Band of the Year” award from the Charleston City Paper.

The follow-up campaign Pizza Dreams (2016) matched the trajectory of it’s predecessor, eventually earning the band a second consecutive City Paper Award, and producing another successful single, “Bad News” which helped the band extend its reach to the national level.

In 2018 Human Resources released their third album Champagne. As with En Route and Pizza Dreams, the band utilized the talents of drummer Matt Zutell (Coast Records) for the majority of the production needs, continuing a long standing tradition of self production. In addition to Zutell, HR tapped LA based producer Taylor Locke, founding member of Rooney, at his studio The Velveteen Laboratory for initial production work.


Thirsty Curses

Thirsty Curses is a rock n’ roll outfit based out of Raleigh, NC. The band was formed by singer-songwriter Wilson Getchell (vocals, guitar, piano) in late 2016 and features Kelley Otwell on lead guitar, Phil Harrington on drums, and Clayton Herring on bass. Thirsty Curses' material draws from numerous genres including punk, folk, country, pop rock, and grunge and explores lyrical themes ranging from the existential to the absurd. Thirsty Curses' music strikes a balance between exuberance and despair, and the band's live shows are energetic, entertaining affairs. Put simply, Thirsty Curses is a good fucking time.

As YES! Weekly put it in a write up on the band, "Thirsty Curses make rock’n’roll, with a boisterous beer-swilling edge to it. Many of these songs are about living it up while things fall apart at the seams, or at least trying to find some glory in chaos and meaninglessness. You might hear a connection to the Replacements, the Hold Steady, the Dropkick Murphys, and other rowdy rockers."
