Sure Sure is an experimental pop band from Los Angeles, California. The highly collaborative group, composed of Chris Beachy (keyboardist, singer), Charlie Glick (guitarist, singer), Kevin Farzad (drums, percussion) and Michael Coleman (producer), has been releasing music since 2014. Perched on a hill in Highland Park, the boys self-produce all their music in their house-turned-studio – a myriad of instruments positioned throughout the first floor, with cables snaking up the walls to the recording console upstairs. Sure Sure’s recordings and infectious live show have quickly solidified them as one of the most exciting up and coming bands in LA. Their sound is characterized by a glowing warmth, ear-worm melodies, and driving rhythms, like if the Talking Heads, Tame Impala and Steely Dan raised their love child together under the California sun. Ever since their 2016 single "New Biome" caught fire on Spotify, the band has been garnering a rapidly expanding audience, both online and in real life. In the summer of 2017 they began a new release cycle, putting out the heartbreak-pop tune "Friends," dance-tastic “Hands Up Head Down” and others, reaching #1 on the Hype Machine charts and gaining praise from Grizzly Bear, Rostam of Vampire Weekend and other staples in the indie music community. Following their album release on January 12 and Winter 2018 tour with Hippo Campus, Sure Sure will embark upon their national headline tour in April. You can call the boys at (323)739-0630 if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi.
Rachel Mallin & The Wild Type
"Rachel Mallin is a self-produced singer/songwriter that finds it difficult to comply within the restrictions of one genre. Whether it’s her self-proclaimed A.D.D. tendencies or another likeable force blending sounds, Mallin has a way with uniting the unlikely." - Andreina Byrne (Demencha Magazine)
At age 19, Kansas City native and stiff upper lip indie songwriter and producer, Rachel Mallin hit the ground sprinting with her basement-generated EP titled “The Persistence of Vision”. In the wake of its release, listeners were mesmerized by the enchanting blend of hypnotic grooves beneath the layers of her soulfully perceptive and original lyrics. In less than a year following her four-track EP's release, featured songs such as "Razorback" and "Noise of the Night" were discovered and broadcasted by alternative/indie radio stations at a local and national level.
Fast forward to the year 2015. Three fearless, pioneering musicians and songwriters such as Justin Walker (bass), Austin Edmisten (drums/vox), and Shaun Crowley (lead guitar), deemed as The Wild Type for short, take to the live stage with Rachel in support of musical acts such as Metric, Panic is Perfect, The Lonely Wild, Pan Astral, and The Architects. In the span of 10 months Rachel’s original songs crawled up from the depths of her basement and reached listeners all around the world.
Rachel Mallin and The Wild Type plan to release their first collaborative EP in fall of 2015.
