Watch & Listen
POLARTROPICA makes crystal-cool, dreamy, orchestral electro/synth pop that will tickle your ears and imagination. The debut EP Astrodreams is set to be released on Lolipop Records (cass) on March 29, 2016! Intertwined within the "swirly burst of dreamy reverie" (Free Bike Valet) are themes of isolation, injustice, heartbreak, and corruption - all set under the glittery futuristic synths and classical string arrangements.
Combining her love for classical, pop and indie rock music, Ihui Wu (keyboardist for Sanglorians, Simone White, Ghostel) holed up in her tiny cottage in Highland Park and wrote the songs together with fellow music lover and friend Roman Salas. The songs were recorded with Silverlake-based producer C.M. Rodriguez over one of the hottest summers in California. With the help of many talented musicians, including Morgan Paros on violin, Joe Santa Maria on saxophone and Lauren Elizabeth Baba on viola/violin, the vision for Astrodreams came to life!! Come away to a distant land where macarons grow on trees, fuzzy baby flamingos nap in the warm sunshine and glitter clouds line the sky!
Inspired by sparkling mineral water, Totoro, Quentin Tarantino, James Bond and Aaliyah, POLARTROPICA is Ihui (eeway) Wu, Graham Chapman, Andrew Lessman and Alexander Noice and super secret special guests!!!
The Colour Coast
The Colour Coast came together in late 2016 in Los Angeles, and consists of members with roots in Canada, Argentina, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Minnesota. Their songs inject tropical and Latin dance rhythms into wide melodies, creating a sound that pays tribute to their range of cultural backgrounds and musical influences. The end result is a unique, danceable brand of indie rock peppered with the flavours of classic disco and Cumbia, which they're calling "tropical indie rock." They've hit the ground running in 2018; releasing their first EP in January, booking shows at SXSW for March, and playing a successful month-long residency at The Satellite. The momentum around this group is gaining quickly!
Inspired by the dance-rock groups of the early 80’s, mini bear is future-pop for a Post-Romantic generation. A classical voice graduate in music, L.A. native Lauren Kop uses analog synth sounds and modern electronic gadgets to write layered songs with sentimental melodies. Lyrics communicate intense loneliness and a fear of the de-evolution of love and detachment in our culture.
