has already been featured on MTV, won the viewer's choice award in Owl Magazine's "Video Makes The Radio Star" contest, and have opened for Hot Chip, Justice, Moby, Neon Trees, Mstrkrft, TV on The Radio and Goldfrapp to name a few. Over the past few years, velvet-throated vocalist Daniel Lannon and hyper-prolific producer Kevin Durr and Israel Chavarin have propelled the group from a Craigslist collaboration to a stage-shattering electro-pop act worthy of international acclaim. Pushing the pop and electronic boundaries to something bigger, their music is a hybrid of indie, pop, synth, Top 40, and electro. Defying traditional genre classification, the group's electro-tinged cuts toe the line between a falsetto homage to Michael Jackson and the hyper-literate electro experimentation of Dfa acts like Lcd Soundsystem.
is an electronic pop duo from Los Angeles, CA that features Emily Kavanaugh (vocalist) and Mark Brooks (producer). Formed in 2011, Brooks and Kavanaugh began writing songs together with the goal of creating a dark synth pop band. Although Brooks comes with a lengthy pedigree in performing/DJ-ing (Warlock Pinchers, Foreskin 500, Le Pimp and MegaJive), this marks Kavanaugh's first entrance into performing following in the steps of her father, Kevin Kavanaugh (keyboardist from the legendary New Jersey band Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes).
Soon to be become the DNA Lounge house band are Happy Fangs
! The new project from Rebecca Gone Bad (My First Earthquake) and Michael Cobra (King Loses Crown). With her high energy vocals, his grit-pop guitar and a drum machine, these two are making dirty garage punk pop that falls somewhere between The Beach Boys, Blondie, and Bikini Kill.
