Above the Moon
Above the Moon is a four-piece rock band from Madison, NJ. Leaning hard on lyrics with heart and riffs that bite, ATM’s pedigree is rooted in a 90s unpretentious vibe woven with indie and pop melodies. Together, the group delivers a wide spectrum of emotion in their tunes – from the highs to the lows.
The current lineup of Kate Griffin on vocals and rhythm guitar, Shawn Murphy on lead, Chris Mangin on bass and John Gramuglia on drums, has been together since late 2016. The group has been playing clubs, festivals, basements and more across the Tri-state area and don’t plan on slowing down.
Most recently, ATM recorded their third EP at The Headroom in Philadelphia, with producers Joe Reinhart (of Hop Along) and Kyle Pulley (of Thin Lips). “Patterns You Create” captures the head space of the group in their latest progression, featuring songs that will compel you to roll the windows down and blast it, or sit in a dark room and get lost in your own head.
Mars Motel is a dream-rock band from Brooklyn, NY presenting an explosive and immersive sound which originates from melodic elements of 1990’s Brit-Pop as well as the raw, driving rhythms of the early 2000’s NYC rock scene.
Well before the official name and creation of Mars Motel, the music began as a series of psychedelic, Brit-Pop-inspired bedroom demos written by singer/guitarist Sarik Kumar during his last year of high school. For almost 10 years, the demos were left on an old computer and almost forgotten until the summer of 2016, when Kumar rediscovered them while visiting his childhood home on Long Island.
After a couple of successful singles being released in the last two years since Mars Motel was formed, including “Green” and “Living in the Moment”, The Eclipse Sessions live EP was released on July 27th, 2018. Recorded on August 21, 2017 at Mission Sound during the first solar eclipse the contiguous United States saw in 38 years, and released during yet another eclipse this year, the EP features three live tracks from Mars Motel’s first wave of singles, “The Enemy”, “Green”, and “It’s Here Tonight”, as well as two unreleased B -sides (“Hit The Floor” and “City Streets”).
With new studios tracks complete, Mars Motel plans on releasing their debut album, “Passenger X”, slated for late 2019.
