With the advent of the internet, it’s never been easier for music fans to form a community around niche music. Social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram are home to thousands of small music communities, where users discuss their favorite releases, offer insight to up-and-coming creators, and more. Every type of music has a home. However, these online communities are fractured and social media platforms, which rely primarily on text and visual content, aren’t ideal for sharing music.


“I have a lot of friends who have the same music taste or we have a similar open-minded attitude towards music where anything goes,” Winslow said in a phone interview with Local. “It’s very social. People bond over that experience and I just felt like there wasn’t anything out there that felt true to that experience.”
