What do you get when you mix an Aussie, a Mexican, a Texan, and Coloradoan? The ear-gasmic waves of The Elovay! Pulling inspiration from the likes of Weezer, The Beatles, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Black Keys, The Elovay creates what singer Xavier Brinkman describes as "uptempo, hard hitting rock with catchy lyrics and harmonies." Besides being a great vocalist, Brinkman is also dead-on with his description.
Embracing relocation and new beginnings, The Elovay named their band after Los Angeles - the 'L' of 'A'…get it? Yes, it's a clever name and a great homage to the city that brought these talented musicians together. Forming in 2011, the band played acoustic gigs around LA until meeting Scott, who would become their drummer. As Xavier states it "we all jammed and bam, musical magic was made." Magic indeed!
Western Scene was formed in 2011 when two hombres, Tom Pritchard (Dynamite Walls) and Jason Burkhart (Kenan Bell), met at a cactus and cut it down for some tacos. The duo, out of Echo Park, and with contributions from Jonathan Hischke and Dan Elkan, both of whom played with Broken Bells, along with drummer Joey Waronker, Western Scene began recording with producer Hugo Nicolson (Primal Scream/Radiohead).
Their first single “Listening” off of their self-titled EP garnered
attention from local radio stations and booked show after show at venues like The Bootleg Theatre and The Satellite.
In 2013 Jason left the group to pursue other interests and Tom
welcomed bassist Wyatt Glodell, drummer Richard Kitting and
keyboardist Jim Wakefield. Bonding over an appreciation for
organically blending traditional folk and garage rock sounds with
electronic undertones, the release of their second single 'Same As You' landed them on the KROQ Locals Only Playlist for six weeks in a row and quickly earned them respect from fans, critics and peers. The band is currently recording their follow up EP with Nicholson at their home studio in Beachwood Canyon, seamlessly building upon their indie rock roots with R&B sensibilities, and is due it in Fall 2014.
The New Electric Sound
THE NEW ELECTRIC SOUND is a five-piece surf-pop-rock band that fuses simple, time-tested, '50s-era rock 'n' roll with current indie-pop styles, delivering something palpably and adamantly original, with a sweet sugar coating of nostalgic goodness. Young, handsome, and heavily cardiganed, The New Electric Sound reminds us that songs of love, innocence, and heartbreak are just as cool today as they've always been. Like Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees, with whom they have shared the stage, The New Electric Sound hails the stage, The New Electric Sound hails from the rapidly rising indie music scene of Provo, Utah. The band formed and began touring in late 2011, rapidly gaining notoriety as one of the most prominent bands in the Rocky Mountain region.
They released their self-titled debut album in August of 2012. In the same month, the band took first place in Provo's Rock the River contest. The critically acclaimed music video Heartbeat was awarded Best Cinematography at Filmed in Utah and was nominated for best music video at the International Film Festival Manhattan.
