Mobley
Mobley
Cutting vocals in the woods behind his college dorm. Mixing in the backseat of a sedan. Sneaking into the music department after hours to teach himself to play new instruments (and sneaking out before the faculty arrived in the morning). From the start, Mobley's work has been marked by solitude, ingenuity, and a drive that could only be called obsessive. Whether you experience his music on record or at one of his live shows (on stage, he's electric), the passion is palpable. Mobley grew up all over the world, from the Spanish Mediterranean to the California coast. Perhaps it's because of this itinerant childhood that he finds it so hard to sit still.

Over the last few years, he's composed dozens of pieces for stage and television, played 150+ national tour dates (with the likes of JUNGLE, Mutemath, & Wavves and at festivals like Savannah Stopover and Float Fest), and recorded (then scrapped) two whole albums in pursuit of the songs that would become his forthcoming full-length debut, Fresh Lies. The album, on which Mobley plays every instrument, defies easy classification, drawing liberally (often simultaneously) from indie rock, R&B, and pop sensibilities. He's equally at home on a playlist next to The Weeknd and TV on the Radio alike, while his electronic, dub-dabbling production style calls to mind the intricate work of artists like James Blake and Thom Yorke.
The Eiffels
The Eiffels
Relix Magazine calls The Eiffels' "sleek dance rock...contagious." Yahoo Music raves, "Los Angeles buzz band, The Eiffels, has the music scene in a swirl with its catchy '80's synth pop." And Paste Magazine calls their new EP, "a sweet spot between indie-pop and rock."

The week of its release, their debut EP was hailed by Baeble Music as an “opening salvo that any band would dream of,” and was the 15th most added record on U.S. college radio. They’ve since received support from major radio stations from Los Angeles’ KROQ and KLOS, to San Diego’s 91X and Z90.

After an ambitious United States tour, continuous buzz, and seeing their music featured in hit television shows like MTV's Are You The One?, and The Only Way is Essex, The Eiffels have released their new EP, complete with the same diabolically catchy hooks and an even bigger sound.
CloudTalk
CloudTalk
Hidden in the musical madness of Los Angeles is a little band called "CloudTalk" plugging away in the studio to put their own alternative spin on pop music…but they won't be hidden much longer. With their knack for inescapable vocal melodies accompanied by a diverse array of songs, CloudTalk captures a wider audience than one would expect. The 4 piece band is made up of vocalist TJ Black, drummer Gabrielle Arellano, bassist Victor Trevino and guitarist Samuel Duffey. Their music is a synth soaked party at times while mellowing out to an R&B banger at others but don't let that fool you. There is a lot hidden pain and contemplation about living in the superficial aura of Los Angeles to be found in their lyrics. But if anything is certain, CloudTalk has found their spot in the music world and it's only a matter of time before they go from being another hidden gem in LA to the next big Pop sensation everyone and their grandma won't stop talking about.

WHAT’S NEXT - Cloudtalk is currently working on their first EP that is set to come out within the next couple months. They are playing live shows in LA frequently so subscribe to their social media channels so you can catch a show near you soon!
