Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar was born ten years ago, when Tillmann was living in Minneapolis, playing guitar-based indie rock. The Har Mar idea, he says, was "a reaction to boring indie rock and how people were taking themselves way too seriously, and any aspect of playing and touring was no fun after a while, and I realized if I go to a dance party and sing an R. Kelly song on a couch, the girls are going to go fucking crazy. So I started transferring that to the stage and doing more R&B oriented songs and it really was a no-brainer after I'd done it a few times. Like, 'why don't I just make this gross, why don't I just start writing songs like that?" And as soon as I did, it was obvious, it was like a light bulb went off and I went on my way and got more and more aggressive, and the shows became this weird exercise in sexual tension, and I really learned how to play with that fire and make it work for me.
There's a new thing called Basic Vacation and we're pretty sure they're going to be rather large. Imagine Foster The People in a blender with Fun - plus the hooks and looks of One Direction sprinkled in for good measure - and you'll have an idea of the kind of hook-driven happy ending pop they're pumping out. But no matter how you cut it, debut single "I Believe" is a straight-ahead summertime smash, and we're excited to announce the band's LA debut at Popshop West on August 22. Hit City USA indeed.
The three multifaceted band members of the DC aquawave/emo-pop band Misun (pronounced 'me-sun') met while working in different capacities at the Dupont Circle bar/restaurant, Science Club in 2010. At the time vocalist Misun Wojcik waitressed part-time, often sharing overlapping shifts with resident DJs William DeVon and Nacey (production). The three soon discovered a common musical bond and began writing and recording in Nacey's bedroom studio on U Street.
Maybe you’ve seen them DJing at your favorite hotspot, cracking jokes on Sundance or VH1, or just walking down the street. You probably said to yourself: “What’s their deal? Are they brothers? Lovers? Mormons on a Mission?” That’s the appeal AndrewAndrew do almost everything and blend in almost everywhere; always smartly dressed to a tee in matching outfits they are equally at home at the Opera or a Dive Bar, Designing Jewelry or Debating Street Food. AndrewAndrew are doing it all and invite you to come along for the ride.
