"Obviously, there is no such thing as the "perfect" standard-so with this song we hope to communicate that girls should love who they are. That they should disregard and ignore what a lot of the popular media says about what makes a woman "attractive" or "sexy" and to feel confident in their own skin, flaunting their own style, and not worrying about fitting into that box that seems to be defined by twitter, instagram, and the like.." - John Vaughn, PUBLIC
PUBLIC is a pop/rock trio from Cincinnati, Ohio. John Vaughn (lead vocals/guitar) and Ben Lapps (drums) started writing songs in a basement as a duo before being joined by Matt Alvarado (bass) to form their current lineup, PUBLIC. Quickly after, the band found themselves on the road supporting acts such as Walk the Moon, Twenty One Pilots, Young the Giant, as well as participating in major festivals like Forecastle, Bunbury, CMJ, and SXSW, giving them exposure to a variety of crowds and fanbases. Their single "Heartbeating" was trending on HypeMachine's top twitter tracks in 2015 directly following its independent release. As momentum continues to grow, PUBLIC looks to make a big impact with their upcoming releases in 2016, carrying a message that someone's identity can be found outside the lines of what's expected or acceptable. The music and lyrics are there to communicate honest experiences and express the vulnerable truth that PUBLIC is made up of three humans that desire to use music as a means to connect.
