Local artist of the week Pacific was founded in Nashville by frontman Will Hunter at the end of his time at Belmont University.
Inspired by the alternative rock music of the early 2000s, ’70s and ’80s pop music like The Beatles, U2 and Fleetwood Mac and current pop artists like The 1975, Pacific believes in the necessity of many influences in order to curate a creative sound that honors both the past and looks to the future.
“There is really nothing we aren’t inspired by in some way,” says Hunter. “I feel like I’m always rethinking the Pacific sound.”
Listen to their single “Crumble” below and all week long on Lightning 100.
