This event is 21 and over
Yuck are very excited to unveil the first brand new track from their forthcoming LP.
Gorgeous and chiming, burnished and glowing, "Rebirth" unfurls slowly yet majestically, giving up its charms gradually. Anchored by lead singer Max Bloom's beautifully assured vocals, it is at once intrinsically Yuck while at the same time hinting at the start of an exciting new chapter for the band.
The much anticipated second album will arrive later this year. Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On the Radio).
GRMLN is the musical project of 20 year old, Yoodoo Park. He was born in Kyoto, Japan and moved to southern California at a young age (though he still goes back to Japan every summer). Yoodoo started playing music at the age of 13 when he was given a bass guitar and has been playing music ever since.
During the summer of 2010, Yoodoo started recording relaxing songs for himself to listen to in his car during lazy, summer afternoons. To capture the sound of relaxation in his songs, Yoodoo incorporated clean sounding guitar rhythms with a mixture of drowsy melodies. Surrounded and inspired by trees and coastal surf, Yoodoo's interest in nature shows through amply in his music. In his Explore EP, GRMLN has been described as a sound that blends clean-rock and dream-pop.
Empire is GRMLN's album for the cruisin' world: Upbeat rock music with the feel of 90s pop-punk. The new tracks are much more rock-driven than Explore's gentle, dreamy tunes. The album was mostly written the months preceding and during Yoodoo's sophomore year at the University of California Santa Cruz. When the fall semester began, Yoodoo would either write in between classes or just ditch the day's lessons all together in pursuit of a song.
The She’s met on the playground as six year olds, and have been friends since then and band mates for almost as long. Hailing from the beautiful and foggy San Francisco CA, Samantha Perez, Hannah Valente, Eva Treadway, and Sinclair Riley share a love for pop music from the 50s and 60s and write music which reflects these influences within their own brand of west-coast-garage-pop. They are no strangers to great harmonies and hooks
and have been described as “The Ronettes meets The Ramones,” but also offer something new and exciting to these classic sounds. The She’s released their debut album, “*Then It Starts To Feel Like Summer*” in November, and have been fortunate enough to share the stage with several of the very bands that inspired the album, such as Girls and The Morning Benders. The She’s strive to make timeless and interesting pop music that grabs and inspires you. So please, listen, dance and enjoy.
