JAKEY HEARTBREAK & THE BAD SKULLS
Jakey Heartbreak and The Bad Skulls are living humans who play loud rock music meant to excite and incite wonderfully terrible behavior amongst its listeners. If you enjoy feeling like you want to hug a stranger or tackle a friend, we’re here to meet your needs. Faces may melt, heads might explode, but one thing for sure is it will certainly be a good time. Sing, shout, scream, do a back flip. We got you. With song releases earlier this year and packed shows at some of LA’s more well known establishments, Jakey Heartbreak and the Bad Skulls are creating a buzz from more than just the alcohol. We know it’s only rock n roll, but we are the walrus…walruses? Anyway, let’s party.
DIRTY LOVELY CREATURES
DIRTY LOVELY CREATURES is an odd mix of sounds. It’s influences range from Germany’s Boozoo Bajou to SoCal’s own Fu Manchu. Chris Brann’s Ananda Project and Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra are also heavy inspiration’s for this unusual act. The lyrics center around human secrets, and “the things that people do, when they think no one is watching...” The majority of the songs are written by the group’s frontman, Boogiewhip, aka; lead singer of the Cabaret Rock n’ Roll Show, HOT SAUCE HOLIDAY. And they (mostly) chronicle the thoughts and opinions he carries towards the situations (and people) he witnessed during his “cult” upbringing in Northern California, circa, the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Cynical and sexy, vulgar and articulate, DLC is a one-of-a-kind music experience you’ve got to hear AND see to believe.
INDICA is an American Musician. The 22-year-old is based In California, born and raised in the Washington D.C. area.
He is creating an unparalleled buzz with his infectious style and sound. There is no doubt that this gifted Twenty-something, is shaking up the industry while creating his own sound with melodic flows, electronic synths, and big drums. Fusing all the sonics together creates the INDICA sound that has gained him an ever expanding fanbase. Along with his music, authentic aesthetic flair and vintage-styled visuals shape a creative cohesive package that further elevates his ‘Iit’ factor.
Recently signing with Tommy Boy Records, the super talent and his imprint have wasted no time cooking up dynamic music in the lab. INDICA plans to release his next project titled, RETROMODERN on March 29, 2019. Momentum is building with the recently released singles INTOXICATED and REMEDY that have an undeniable EDM vibe and throwback kind of groove.
The highly anticipated effort, RETROMODERN produced and mixed by Andrew Luce, is inspired by 80's movies like the cult classic ‘Scarface’ and millennial fav, ‘Tron’. RETROMODERN gives fans and newcomers a glimpse inside the mind of one the industry most multi-faceted, multi-talented, rising artist.
The catalogue the musician has put together is outstanding -- being able to cross between genres with projects like INDICA (self-titled), and now RETROMODERN. From Electronic to R&B; from Hip-hop to Pop, INDICA’s knows no boundaries! The rising star has solidified his roles as a musician, song writer, influencer and fashion mogul. In an effort to continue to build and expand his brand beyond music, INDICA has joined forces with esteemed entertainment industry veteran Kevin Evans of 7th Agency.
Do yourself a favor...plugin your earbuds or headphones to feel the vibe of his new album, RETROMODERN.
