Coming together in the winter of 2010/11, Star Tropics began as a bass & guitar duo huddled around a drum machine and has since evolved into a four-piece indiepop band determined to write carefree, primary-colored pop songs. Blending boy/girl vocals on top of jangly Rickenbacker leads, a healthy dose of fuzzy rhythms and the pulse of a driving beat, their songs can be described as equal parts celebratory and introspective.
Orca Welles is a rock n roll band primarily out of Fort Collins, CO and secondarily out of Omaha, NE. The band features Olivia Baxter on rhythm guitar and vocals, Alec Williams on lead guitar (and sometimes bass) and vocals, Jayce Haley on bass guitar (and sometimes lead guitar) and vocals, and Nolan Brumbach on drums.
Tiny Fireflies are an electronic dream pop band that layer vintage synthesizers and drum machines underneath the airy vocals of songwriter, Kristine Capua. Although based in Chicago, their debut record, 'The Space Between' was produced with the Transatlantic assistance of Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, The Field Mice) in London. The result is a collection of lush, kinetic songs that represent where Tiny Fireflies are now as musicians and as people.
