Third Class, a quirk-pop trio from Youngstown, Ohio, has worked alongside members of Dirty Projectors, The Breeders, Beat Happening, Soda Shop, Juche, Stealing Jane, Adrian Crowley, Doleful Lions, & The Drums.

As published & nominated writers, Third Class’ members create poetically-charged music, riddled with quirky riffs created by two-string guitar, fuzzy bass, cheesy keyboard, straining vocals, & undulating rhythms.
