Five childhood friends from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, augmented by 3 mid-western transplants, The Mowgli's are a quintessential California band. Inspired by the magnetism of San Francisco, the grind of Los Angeles and the serenity of the Big Sur Coast, their songs are a joyous revival of rock n' roll, a twisting indie-folk dance and a heartfelt protest ballad.
Sliding from indie pop to country and a host of genres in between, the band evokes modern artists such as Fun., Grouplove and Edward Sharpe And the Magnetic Zeros, whilst having their roots in the music of Neil Young, The Byrds, The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac.
Part 60's Laurel Canyon, part 70's Venice Beach and part 10's Silverlake, the band and the harmonies are held together by their message of universal love, peace and the belief that the highest form of consciousness is achieved by togetherness and unity.
Uplifting, collaborative, joyous and communal, their music is a walk through their life thus far: Meeting each other and experiencing together ("San Francisco", "The Great Divide "), emerging stronger ("Carry Your Will") - their message is finding a foothold with fans from every walk of life, bringing people together under one roof to celebrate each other.
The Ross Sea Party
The Ross Sea Party is a typically unusual Los Angeles family. Five friends who wanted to transcend the disconnected and nonsensical nature of life in the city to create something consequential, the band embarked with hollow-body guitars, well-tuned drums, and a glockenspiel.
Like its namesake (a little known yet heroic wing of Ernest Shackleton’s famed 1914 Trans-Antarctic Expedition), The Ross Sea Party can be characterized by their easy navigation across an ever-changing atmosphere, as expeditionaries of boundless inspiration. From the idiosyncratic guitar work of Neil Young and the irreverent pop of The Talking Heads, to indie contemporaries Delta Spirit, Arcade Fire and The Dodos, The Ross Sea Party pay homage to their influences, while simultaneously creating an unmistakable sound of their own. Spacious instrumentations atop energetic, pervasive rhythms provide the foundation for singer Brady Erickson’s unique voice and the band’s emanating harmonies, as the songs remain simple, catchy and melodic at their core.
Erickson formed The Ross Sea Party in 2009, with fellow LA-scene veterans Michael Nussbaum (drums) and multi-instrumentalist Will VanderWyden. Atlanta transplant and songwriter Mark Tillman joined on guitar soon after, with native Angeleno Jacquelyn Thropay (keys/glockenspiel) solidifying the lineup to move fervently into 2011.
Following the 2010 release of Plains of Id, The Ross Sea Party’s debut EP, the band has steadily become a primary name in LA’s indie music scene and beyond. After several SXSW showcases, three west coast tours, and immensely successful residencies at Silverlake Lounge and Central S.A.P.C. in Los Angeles, the band spent Autumn of 2012 recording their ambitious debut full-length album, Hotel Pool. Set to be released on October 16th, the album promises to expand on and surpass the band’s already substantial list of merits.
of Verona is what happens when band members from New York and Toronto meet in Los Angeles. With an indie sensibility and a commercial appeal, of Verona's sound can best be described as futuristic rock, which combines the core elements of a classic four-piece rock band with the electro pop heartbeat of 2050. MTV recently featured of Verona as a 'Band to Know' stating, "If you like melodic rock & roll with great female vocals like Florence & The Machine, you'll definitely dig of Verona" and leading industry publication, Hits Magazine, declared them as one of the top five bands to watch for this year.
In The Valley Below
In The Valley Below is a new musical project born in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles. In a hushed swirl of male and female vocals, their debut EP blends dark stories with brooding riddles and romance. It is a sultry collection of melodic duets in a bed of drum machines, rolling guitars, and layers of dreamy keys.
