Los Angeles-based galactic dream pop artist POLARTROPICA, recently crowned LA

Weekly’s Best Indie Pop Band, has created a genre of ethereal synth psychedelia that

you’ve never heard before – combining exquisite melodies, dreamlike classical string

arrangements, and shimmering vocals. Following up their first US Tour and residency at

the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles, Polartropica released their first full-length LP

‘Dreams Come True’ to sparkling reviews. With their latest singles featured in NYLON,

NPR as well as landing acclaim from the likes of Billboard and LADYGUNN, among

others, Polartropica is an artist on the rise not to be missed.

Westerner is an indie rock band with neo-psychedelic and
synth pop flavors. Funky beats and hypnotic melodies are
applied to a showy style that can either be danced to or appreciated on a purely musical level. The trio blurs the lines
of genre with a savvy pop sensibility. They’ve racked up spins
on LA’s KCSN 88.5FM and Amazing Radio (Tobi Lynn, Jose
Galvan) with rave reviews from BuzzBandsLA, Music
Connection, and American Pancake. They currently work with
world-famous mastering engineer Vlado Meller (Kanye West,
Paul McCartney), and mixing engineer Jules de Gasperis
(James Supercave, Low Hum). Recent shows include the

Bootleg Theater, the Satellite and a residency at Hollywood’s
Good Times at Davey Wayne’s. They will be on tour this
Summer in support of their new album, Kali Yuga Kama Sutra,

dropping August 19th.

LITTLE GALAXIES

Little Galaxies is a band formed in Venice Beach, California by Jeanna

Fournier and Amir Eshraghi. From glittering guitars to smooth tropical

grooves, their sound draws influence from psych-rock, dream pop, and

folk while experimenting with multi-dimensional textures to create a

sonic dreamscape of their own. Joined by Andreas Sandnes on bass

and Lucas Crouch on drums, their enigmatic live shows hypnotize

audiences as they explore the outer limits through interstellar tones,

off-the-wall theremin performances, and vocals drenched in echoes

that soar through the cosmos. Songs from their latest album ‘One With

The Waking Sea’ released by Coconut Spaceship Recs were featured by

top tastemakers including Nic Harcourt (KCSN’s Fresh Squeezed Track

of the Day + Spark Radio), Jose Galvan (KCRW + Amazing Radio), Brett

Callwood (Music Connection’s DIY Spotlight), Kevin Bronson (Buzz

Bands LA + KCSN), Marina Aguerre (KXLU + The Witching Hours), and

Byron Gonzalez (Latin Alt Radio).

Torii Wolf believes in music’s power to transcend

.

A

nd when people hear Wolf



s arrestingly moving voice and wide



ranging musical style

,

they

immediately drop into the emotion of the song and connect on levels that transcend genre, ge

n

der, time, and space

.

In

a 15



y

ear

career that has spanned a host of musical genres from singer



songwriter

to

hip



hop

, Torii Wolf has never failed

to

create a sense

of

intimacy with their list

eners

.

No matter the genre that



s put on the m

usic

,

it all begins with Wolf

,

their musical imagination

,

and a guitar

.

“I call my voice

a

spirit trum

pet

,” sa

ys W

olf, who is doing deep stuff with their music.

Wolf wants the music to be about breaking down preconceived notions

,

to be about redesigning humans

.

No pigeonholing

,

no labels

.

Tori see

k

s to make music that is the conduit to transcendence

.

For Wolf

,

a New Yorker now based in

LA

,

songwriting

is

a full



body experie

nce

.

“I feel a song forming in my whole body

;

the urge to express is totally

physical.



W

olf



s

songs start from an emotional plac

e.

They drop into that emotional space, express it musi

cally

,

and writes lyrics by finding words

f

or

feelings

.

Their live performance is an electrifying culmination of all that feeling and emotion

.

“I like how music can be a bridge to the spiritual world,” says Wolf

.



I

want to use my music to build a safe space for people to fee

l

.



To

feel

anything



to feel excited, or safe, or unsafe, or shocked, or uncomfortable. Music has a power to bring all these feelings for

w

ard in a safe

way

.

Wolf has been playing music professionally for nearly 15 years

,

including

a

full album and tour with hip



hop icon

DJ

Pr

emier

as Torii Wolf

,

and live

performance and production with Mike Zombie

,

the

OVO



beatmaker

behind Drake’s “Started From the Bottom

.



Zombie’s productions with Torii

Wolf

are

dark and

deep

and that re

al

ly resonates with

their

overall

vibe.

“Torii has such a weird

,

wicked style,”

D

J Premier

offers

It



s just very left field



reminiscent of a

B

k

or something like that

.

They are so unique and versatile

and they are an accomplished guitarist and drummer

.

But image



wise

there is no comparison
