Alexander Howard

A native New Yorker, Alexander Howard is a songwriter and artist with influences as diverse as
the city he calls home. The hooks of Top40, the guitar driven club rock of the L.E.S, and even
the Great American Songbook are the inspirations for his
own breed of pop that honors the past
and much as it looks to the future. Howard’s eclectic influences don’t stop at the stage door or in
the studio; the former D1 heavyweight rower
is an active member of NYC’s fashion and editorial
community, advising luxury brands and contributing to outlets such as Interview Magazine and
Vogue. Sophisticated and stylish pop,
therefore,
is the aim,
and in crafting a sound with
references from Roxy Music to Mark Ronson, Howard brings a fresh and refined twist to the pop
soundscape.

Mars Motel

Mars Motel is a dream-rock band from Brooklyn, NY with an immersive sound encompassing
1990’s Britpop, early 2000’s NYC rock scene, and--most recently-- a cosmic dreamscape sound that echoes notes of Radiohead, Pink Floyd and The War On Drugs.

Well before the official creation of Mars Motel in 2017, the music began as a series of
psychedelic 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 largely forgotten until
the summer of 2016 when Kumar rediscovered them while visiting his childhood home in Long
Island.
Determined to bring this world back to life, Kumar brought the demos to producer Tommy
Eichmann at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY where they reworked them into five singles that
combined a dreamy 90s nostalgia with a reverb heavy, guitar
-
driven wall of sound. These
singles, including standout tracks “Green” and “Living in the Moment,” were released over the
course of 2017 and early 2018
and culminated with the release of “The Eclipse Sessions (Live)”
An EP featuring live recordings of select singles and two unreleased B sides.
Returning in 2019, Mars Motel’s new single, “Coming Up for Air,” was produced by singer &
guitarist, Sarik Kumar and recorded at Virtue & Vice Studios with engineer Rocky Gallo in
Brooklyn, NY. This is the first released track from Mars Motel’s debut album, “Passenger X”,
slated for late 2019 / early 2020.
