The Colour Coast, TwoLips, Livingmore, MetronOhm

The Colour Coast came together in late 2016 in Los Angeles, and consists of members with roots in Canada, Argentina, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Minnesota. Their songs inject tropical and Latin dance rhythms into wide melodies, creating a sound that pays tribute to their range of cultural backgrounds and musical influences. The end result is a unique, danceable brand of indie rock peppered with the flavours of classic disco and Cumbia, which they're calling "tropical indie rock." They've hit the ground running in 2018; releasing their first EP in January, booking shows at SXSW for March, and playing a successful month-long residency at The Satellite. The momentum around this group is gaining quickly!

TwoLips is an alternative R&B group, fronted by singer/dancer/songwriter Kianah Jay and produced by Josh Reinhardt. With influences like Sade, Erykah Badu, Santana, Bad Rabbits, and Arrested Development, TwoLips brings together old and new sounds to create nostalgia while cultivating wonder about a savory tomorrow. Following the release of their debut EP Yellow Gold in August of 2017, TwoLips has brought their delicious sound to prominent venues, blogs, playlists, and radio stations around Los Angeles.

Los Angeles band, Livingmore are ready to emerge from their cocoon with their debut record, Ok To Land. The band, originated with songwriters Alex Moore and Spencer Livingston meeting thru mutual friends in 2014, they with the help of Mike Schadel on drums and now Rodrigo Moreno on bass are the make-up of Livingmore. Taking cues from several genres from acts such as Garbage and The Kinks to Belle and Sebastian, Moore and Livingston write dreamy, alternative songs that sound like, in their own words - “a mixture of Blondie and The Everly Brothers. From the childlike essence of trying to decide what to do when you grow up in ‘Cocoon,’ to the upbeat and straightforward ‘Never Slow Down,’ to the Melancholic and dreamy ‘Transition,’ Livingmore’s first full length record is a lush collection of indie rock tracks.Their first single from their new record, “Cocoon,” is a whimsical, guitar heavy track, with flourishes of western-tinged riffs that layer over Moore’s crooning vocal melodies. On the inspiration behind the track, Moore notes: "When writing this song I was looking back at childhood and remembering that ‘what will I be when I grow up’ feeling which from the younger perspective can feel like life is this story book type process of start to finish, in comparison to the reality and realization there's no ending to growth just recurring re births of trial and error that often lead you to the next place you need to be,” shares Moore. “Whether it's repeated mistakes or feeling stuck by life's circumstances there's always a faze of feeling cocooned until we evolve once again into butterflies.”The record’s anthemic title track, ‘Really Mean It’ is accompanied by an animated stop motion video created by Moore’s brother, Dillon. “We really just wanted to make a video that was totally organic and back to basics but at the same time unique and fresh. That’s kind of what this band is really about when you get down to it,” he explains.“We never really plan when we’re going to write, we just wait for it to happen,” Livingston notes, while explaining the band’s songwriting process. Each song has a totally organic approach - sometimes born from Livingston playing a melody and Moore composing accompanying lyrics on the spot; other times with both of them writing songs separately and meeting in the middle. Look out for Ok To Land, coming soon.

From San Fran to LA, Act Natural is testing out the waters of this vibrant place.
Kofi (Mike Blair) is a music producer who has recently picked up guitar. He and Annabelle toggle between lead and harmony with vocals. He may also surprise you with a pocket piano or many of the other tricks up his sleeve.
Annabelle is primarily a mandolin player and vocalist, though she also plays violin (her first instrument) and tickles the guitar.

They do not have much recorded just yet, so keep your ears peeled for what's in store.
