Album Spotlight: Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s – Slingshot to Heaven

Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s are a band just as thought out and interesting as their name implies. Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana they’ve been churning out music since 2005 and the band itself has been constantly evolving. They’ve gone from quiet indie introspective alt rock to heavier rock riffs and emotional yelling and back to the former since their inception and the sky seems to be the limit as to what they’ll do next.

Their latest creation is an album titled “Slingshot to Heaven” and visits their earlier quiet introspective sound while retaining the heavier elements of their latest album “Rot Gut Domestic.” It all blends together nicely to make an album that, despite having a quieter sound, begs to be played loud and true.
