POLARTROPICA
POLARTROPICA
POLARTROPICA makes crystal-cool, dreamy, orchestral electro/synth pop that will tickle your ears and imagination. The debut EP Astrodreams is set to be released on Lolipop Records (cass) on March 29, 2016! Intertwined within the "swirly burst of dreamy reverie" (Free Bike Valet) are themes of isolation, injustice, heartbreak, and corruption - all set under the glittery futuristic synths and classical string arrangements.

Combining her love for classical, pop and indie rock music, Ihui Wu (keyboardist for Sanglorians, Simone White, Ghostel) holed up in her tiny cottage in Highland Park and wrote the songs together with fellow music lover and friend Roman Salas. The songs were recorded with Silverlake-based producer C.M. Rodriguez over one of the hottest summers in California. With the help of many talented musicians, including Morgan Paros on violin, Joe Santa Maria on saxophone and Lauren Elizabeth Baba on viola/violin, the vision for Astrodreams came to life!! Come away to a distant land where macarons grow on trees, fuzzy baby flamingos nap in the warm sunshine and glitter clouds line the sky!

Inspired by sparkling mineral water, Totoro, Quentin Tarantino, James Bond and Aaliyah, POLARTROPICA is Ihui (eeway) Wu, Graham Chapman, Andrew Lessman and Alexander Noice and super secret special guests!!!

Metronohm
Metronohm
While members Annabelle Maginnis and Kofi Asare-Aboagye met in college, MetronOhm was not fully formed until March of 2017 when Hunter Craig officially joined the crew. It was a perfect fit. Kofi and Annabelle both operate without music theory knowledge. Hunter brought much needed technical skill, musical expertise, performance experience and critical input to the table.



Now they can be caught in some of he major venues around LA including The Echo, The Satellite, Resident, Harvard & Stone, Hi Hat, The Mint, and more. They travel to San Francisco to play Bottom of the Hill, and other venues every couple of months, and visited Austin, Texas to perform at SXSW in 2017. They made a presence in the local summer festival circuit playing the KCRW event, Chinatown Summer Nights, Broke LA, as well as, Echo Park Rising. MetronOhm premiered the single, "Wabi Sabi,” with Teddy Roxpin through Buzzbands.LA in 2018. Their debut EP, Matter, was released in April 2017. Stay tuned for more releases to come.
Mini Bear (DJ set)
Mini Bear (DJ set)
Inspired by the dance-rock groups of the early 80's, mini bear is future-pop for a Post-Romantic generation. A classical voice graduate in music, L.A. native Lauren Kop uses analog synth sounds and modern electronic gadgets to write layered songs with sentimental melodies. Lyrics communicate intense loneliness and a fear of the de-evolution of love and detachment in our culture.
