This event is all ages

Sires is a bit of an anomaly in these modern times. They stand toe to toe with the most cutting edge bands in Indie Rock today, while remaining deeply rooted in the pre-Beatles American songbook. Timeless melodies so pure and sweet, you could swear you've heard them before, floating from a crackling radio tuned to a dying AM oldies station, until the band swells powerfully behind a 3 part harmony and you're sure an airplane is landing on your roof and it becomes clear. This band is of the moment. This band is happening now and creating some of the most intensely beautiful music in the world today.
"the best currently active rock band in Iowa" - Iowa Informer

"...a splendorous fusion of mellifluously lilting pop and spacey, psych imbued rock" - I Heart Moosiq

"Halfloves is one of the most prominent bands in Iowa today." - Little Village

"The characters in the group's songs are filled with light, something that seems to be guiding, something altogether right and good and yet, there are the tangents that take them to their sad times, where they can't settle on who exactly they're going to wind up as." - Daytrotter

"Even with all the hype I'd been hearing about them for years, I was not disappointed at all. In fact, I was a bit taken back by their talent. Halfloves bring an energy that was largely unmatched throughout the entire [80/35] festival." - Band Bombshell

"...the show they put on was absolutely pure, unfiltered magic." - DSM Shows

"...Halfloves, one of the best young bands in Iowa who've been gaining fans like mad (especially among other bands) with their impressive high-tempo, anthemic and powerfully rocking shows." -Talking with Yale Cohn

"This is an Iowa band you need to know... they've matured into an excellent indie rock band capable of weaving tones together into a bright, rocking and melodic dose of pure pop." - Ames Tribune

"Lemme tell you something folks, it's really fucking hard to find bands who banter comfortably on stage without sounding like total assholes, and Halfloves have a more inviting stage presence than all the other bands i've seen in iowa city combined." - Indie Music Machine
