THE WRECKS hail from Thousand Oaks, CA, and consist of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (guitar), Harrison Nussbaum (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums). Heavily influenced by groups such as The Pixies, The Strokes, Weezer, and Vampire Weekend, this 5-piece isn’t afraid to blend
undeniably catchy choruses with lyrics and vocals that have an underlying substance and a certain quirk that give them their young, signature sound.
Ecstasy and sorrow, post-punk and pop, east and west -- all those times when you're caught in the middle, there's Mainland. They are the soundtrack to moments of freedom and darkness.
Taking a nod from society's fellow black sheep (think David Lynch, William Eggleston, and Depeche Mode), Mainland returns with a collection of new tunes and an enigmatic call to arms. A diverse mix of vintage aesthetics and modern pop songwriting/production, Mainland draws from a range of influences to form one unifying anthem loud enough for all of life's outcasts.
Led by enigmatic frontman, Jordan Topf (Vocals, Guitar) and comprised of Corey Mullee (Guitar, Synth), Alex Pitta (Bass) and Dylan Longstreet (Drums), the four-piece arrived with their 'Girls Unknown' EP (2013) and followed soon after with their second independent release, 'Shiner' EP (2014) produced by Jim Eno of Spoon. Describing late night tales of gritty New York City streets, Mainland quickly gained a name for themselves with praise pouring in from tastemakers like NYLON, SPIN, Interview Magazine, BrooklynVegan, Consequence of Sound and Rolling Stone. Meanwhile, the band kept busy securing opening spots with The Colourist, Drowners, Strange Talk, and Catfish and the Bottlemen, and shared festival stages with The War on Drugs, Of Montreal, and Torres.
Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, The Technicolors blend grand gestures of rock-n-roll with the swagger of brit rock and the songwriting prowess of greats such as Roy Orbison, Noel Gallagher and George Harrison. The band spent the last half 2012 and all of 2013 on the road supporting their debut album "Listener Deluxe". The Technicolors kicked off 2014 with a main stage slot at Phoenix's Viva Fest along with The Neighbourhood and Kitten. The band just returned from a week in Austin, TX performing as part of the annual South by Southwest Music Conference. Spring 2014 will see them perform at The Annual KWSS Phochella on April 19 on the same bill as Crash Kings. The band finalizing new studio tracks and looks to Summer 2014 to release highly anticipated new music. See you on the road...
