James Supercave combine pysch-pop aesthetics with a pop sensibility to create an artsy hybridized sound much like Alt-J or MGMT” (Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands.LA). With their debut Album, Better Strange, earning multiple “Best Album” awards, sold out shows on both coasts, and opening slots for some of the nation’s biggest artists, James Supercave have earned the respect and admiration of music fans and critics across the country. In 2014 they released their first single, Burn, which claimed “Track of the Day” from LA tastemaker KCRW. The following year their debut EP,
The Afternoon, sparked great praise and opened the door for James Supercave to play major festivals and tour across the west coast. In 2016, James Supercave followed their EP with their debut album, Better Strange. They then hit the road on a national tour, followed by headline slots at local festival staples, and a sold out co-headline west coast tour wrapping up 2017. Now Supercave are primed with fresh material and a new Single coming out in April, 2018.
Drawing inspiration from 70s disco, 80s New Wave and 90s indie rock, Moscow’s Pompeya weaves vibrant harmonies, melodic synth lines, and punchy guitar riffs to create unabashed indie pop.
Lukas Frank is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer who started touring professionally at 18, playing as a drummer for hire with artists like Portugal. The Man, Alexandra Savior, Phoebe Bridgers, HANDS, Black English, Kitten, DECORATOR, and many other Los Angeles based artists. After several years of touring, he decided to quit playing as a hired gun and pursue his own project full time, this time at the front of the stage. Already, his music has been selected to be prominently featured in an upcoming Netflix original series, "Godless", with music supervision by T Bone Burnett. Frank has spent the last four years honing an EP that’s been kept entirely behind closed doors, an EP that features many of the musicians he met touring the country. The result is a veritable supergroup of musicians and songwriters, all contributing to a project that has taken its time to develop and become a fully realized, impactful musical statement.
