indie rock, straight from the south.

Sure, Nashville might be known for country music. But there's also an indie rock scene that's just as loud as its twangy counterpart.

Case in point? PUJOL, the punk-rock project of local musician Daniel Pujol. They've got a gritty, garage-band sound, but with guitar riffs and catchy hooks that are hard to resist.

PUJOL have already won a loyal following with addictive songs like "Mayday" and "Too Safe." Plus, they've got a famous fan in fellow rocker Jack White, who's producing the band's next single on his label, Third Man Records.

And with an upcoming performance at CMJ Music Festival and an East Coast tour, we're betting PUJOL won't be Nashville's best-kept secret much longer.

Check out PUJOL on MySpace, and watch for Black Rabbit, dropping October 2nd.
