Indie-pop band from Kansas City. The band formed as a trio in early 2012 under the name The I'ms, but after recording a handful of demo tracks and playing live only a few times, changed their name to Shy Boys before the summer of the same year. A few of the early demos ("Bully Fight," "Keeps Me On My Toes") were re-recorded for the band's debut album, but others (the lo-fi "Justine," the '60s pop throwback "Strange," and the French pop-inspired "Want Her") have yet to be released in an official capacity. Prior to recording their sophomore full-length, the band added Kyle Little on guitar and keyboards. Multi-instrumentalist Ross Brown, who helped produce the album, joined the band shortly thereafter.
Local to DC, Lotion Princess is Sasha Elisabeth (vocals, keys), Katie Parker (bass, vocals), Andrew Grossman (guitar) and Dan Sachs (drums). Blending ambient indie folk instrumentals with heartfelt melodies, the group's sound evokes a space where vulnerability meets nostalgia. Songwriter Sasha Elisabeth contemplates intimacy, darkness, and physical form by way of moody, soul-baring lyrics. Lotion Princess will release an EP in winter of 2019.
