Opia is an indie electronic group consisting of Cole Citrenbaum (vocals/guitar), DJ Stanfill (vocals/keys), and colorthought (producer). The band formed after meeting at Yale University in 2016 and launching the viral hit "Falling". "Falling", which was recorded in a dormitory studio, quickly rocketed to the top of Hype Machine and Spotify's Viral Charts. In July 2017, Opia released their debut EP Faded, which garnered support from Spotify New Music Friday, BBC Radio 1, TIME Magazine, and more. Last year, the band, which tours as a two-piece live set, completed full US tours supporting Marian Hill and Whethan. Recently, Opia featured on singles with Whethan (Atlantic), Ekali (OWSLA), and Louis Futon (Foreign Family). The group is currently gearing up for the release of their second EP alongside a headline tour in the summer.
Joseph Lee, aka Jae Luna, is a singer-songwriter/producer based in Brooklyn. His new EP, Projected Self, is a sonic reflection of introspection and self-awareness.
Since his parents immigrated from Korea, the equivalent of his musical background is “just [his] brother stealing [his] ipod and throwing on hundreds of songs that [he] had never heard.” Luna was in 5th grade when he started listening exclusively to Nas, Big L, Notorious B.I.G., The Strokes, and Fall Out Boy. When he arrived to college, his library was dominated by trap, folk, and left-field electronic artists.
Jae Luna’s music combines the elements of his past -- 808 subs and hi-hats, lo-fi electric guitars, over-compressed drums, r&b riffs, synthesizers, and complex electronic harmonies. His music is the mirror of his upbringing as a child of an immigrant.
