Night Terrors of 1927
What do we know about the mysteriously monikered Night Terrors of 1927? Well, they're from LA. We know that because it says so on their SoundCloud page, which only has one song on it. As does their official website. Perhaps there's more information on their Facebook page? Nope, they only signed up for that last week. Ah, but Twitter, everyone's on Twitter. Yep, they're on Twitter, but they've only tweeted three times and only have four followers. Still, it's all about the music, isn't it? Thankfully their debut offering, Watch the World Go Dark, is excellent. An impending apocalypse never sounded so good.
There’s a new rock quartet in town whose sophisticated pop may include your next breezy summer melody. You can go ahead and thank Northern American for songs like the shimmering “Record Forever” to go with your ice-cold beer beside the pool and the bluesy “Don’t Be a Star” to go down with that warm whiskey as you look over L.A.’s nightscape. They should know a good soundtrack to the City of Angels after all; Nate Paul, Shane Alch, Augusto Vega and Bruno Calenda all grew up in L.A. and after playing together for three years, they’ve finally released their debut EP, “Happiness Hungover,” with a lending hand from Norm Block (Plexi) on production. This isn’t noise-rock, but it’s deliciously smooth. A full-length by Northern American is in the works. - Buzz Bands LA
Avid Dancer, where the sounds of the '60s and '70s — shimmering and tremeloed guitars, vocal hooks and AM radio-ready
motifs — get a gentle kick in the behind, an update for these times - Buzzbands
Parade Of Lights
Parade of Lights are an alt-electro band based in Los Angeles. Comprised of Ryan Daly, Anthony Improgo, Michelle Ashley & Randy Schulte, the group combines equal parts rock, new wave, and shoegaze to create a unique blend of 80's influenced pop drawing on inspiration from artists like U2, Depeche Mode, M83, and even Madonna.
Shortly after meeting in LA in 2006, they formed the band Polus. After releasing a four-song EP entitled "Wish" and garnering a significant buzz locally, Polus was put on hiatus due to considerable demand for both Daly and Improgo as touring musicians. Even with their rigorous touring schedules, the two managed to keep their friendship intact and exchanged song ideas via email until 2010 when they decided to officially reunite as Parade of Lights. They spent that year and 2011 releasing new music and playing shows in Southern California, Utah and Nevada, which eventually led to support slots for artists such as Imagine Dragons, The Neighbourhood, Fitz & The Tantrums and Thirty Seconds to Mars.
In the fall of 2011, POL signed a publishing deal with Imagem Music and got to work crafting their electronic shoegaze anthem rock sound. The debut of that new sonic direction was their September 2012 self-released EP,
"Born to Live, Born to Love." They followed up "BTL" with the June 2013 release of the single "We're the Kids," which quickly gained traction online and was added to SiriusXM's Alt Nation channel, where it continues to receive Top 10 spins and has charted as high as #14 on the channel's weekly Alt 18 Countdown. The Alt Nation airplay along with spins at stations like Live 105 in San Francisco, KROQ in Los Angeles and KXTE in Las Vegas led to a label deal with Astralwerks Records in August 2013.
Currently, the band is working on their follow up EP, which is scheduled for a January 2014 release.
