FFNTN is a group of best friends playing new wave pop. Formed in the Spring of 2013, FNTN (fka FENTON) got their start in Virginia, quickly becoming a must-see act on the college circuit. In the tradition of their formative influences — The Cars, The Psychedelic Furs, and The Rolling Stones — FNTN put on a live show that is equal parts adrenaline-fueled intensity and melodies that stick in your head.
FNTN’s music combines their live show’s energy with reflective lyrics and new wave flourishes. Their first EP, Indigo (2016), fused surf pop guitars with a Talking Heads rhythms to create the ultimate soundtrack for late night driving. Its lead single, “Indigo,” has nearly 25,000 streams on Soundcloud and counting.
The Lucid Dreams EP built on Indigo’s rock roots while incorporating vaporwave and synthpop elements. Online tastemakers featured the EP’s two singles, “One More Ride” and “Other Nights,” on multiple playlists; “Other Nights” also received attention as the band’s debut music video.
Since relocating to Los Angeles, FNTN built their own studio in Topanga Canyon and began work on a new set of songs. FNTN filters all their influences through a classic rock ethos that is theirs alone.
"FNTN tap The Beatles, 90s Britpop, and Frank Ocean for a unique, evolving sound." - The Argonaut
Dizzy Box Nine
Dizzy Box Nine is an indie-pop-rock band out of Southern California.
The band was formed by singer-guitarist Randy Ludwig in the summer of 2016, and has featured a variety of musicians from the Los Angeles area, including the talented and versatile guitarist Tony Robles. They play melodic, radio-friendly pop songs which have been described as
“instantly catchy”, “well-written”, and “memorable”. They have been influenced by a variety of bands—from MXPX and Blink 182, to Tom Petty, The Refreshments, and The Cars. And yet, the music of Dizzy Box Nine is unique and stands on its own. It’s positive, imaginative, and playful—while remaining authentic and intriguing at the same time. The passion, confidence, and optimism of Dizzy Box Nine becomes immediately apparent with the first listen.
They released their debut record, Electric Illusion, in September 2017, and have played numerous live shows throughout the Los Angeles area in support of this release. It sold hundreds of copies and was downloaded over a thousand times. Their follow-up record, Pop Fantasy, will be released in February of 2019, and features the solid work of local drummer Amos Przekaza.
Overall, Dizzy Box Nine has created something significant for music fans of all ages and backgrounds. You can see them perform live at their Pop Fantasy record release party —which is set for February 2 nd 2019, at the Mint in Los Angeles, CA!
Catch the positivity...
I was born and raised in Long Beach, California. I am a young and enthusiastic 19 year old who has been acting and playing music since the 4th grade! I love sharing my music with my family, friends, fans and of course, Jesus. You will usually find me playing an acoustic solo set at an all ages sports bar or at a cozy coffeehouse in the Long Beach area. However, in early November of 2016, I had the gig of a lifetime opening up for Don McLean, the singer/writer for the hit classic, "American Pie," at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. Almost 500 people were there that night. I received tremendous feedback, and look forward to playing more shows in the near future, no matter how big or small. Come and join me on my wild musical endeavors!
