Splashh
Splashh
Splashh began life as the brainchild of Toto Vivian and Sasha Carlson forming in late February 2012. The duo initially bonded over their mutual music tastes and then began plotting their sun drenched musical assault on the UK. Growing up between the South Pacific and the UK they left the beaches behind to record in a small bedroom in Hackney. The result was a myriad of floating, fuzz laden grunge pop tunes with a punk twist. With a number of songs in the can the boys then recruited close friends Thomas Beal on bass and Jacob Moore on drums. The 2 new additions made for a sense of excitement that Splashh were primed and ready to roll as a band.

The carefree attitude within their music transports the listener to the summers of yesteryear kicking back with good friends. Sounds of dreamy fuzz being thrust through the walls of your neighbour’s garage as the “slackers on summer holiday” dream of adventure, fun and the open road. With releases planned through the summer, plenty of gigs and a hungry music loving public awaiting, it seems as if the adventure isn’t too far away.
Beach Party
Beach Party
Somewhere between the very precise surf-pop of Allah-Las and outrageous skate-punk of FIDLAR lies the appropriately named Beach Party, whose lo-fi clamor makes me long for that Nehru shirt I wore in the 7th grade. Beach Party is the brainchild of Rob Banks and James Hurst, who began collaborating only a few months ago. They teamed up with bassist Adam Arcos and drummer Nico Maccioca and have been churning out the rough stuff a song at time ever since. Like a lot of bands resuscitating this era, Beach Party doesn’t seem to aspire to much more than — as their chorus shouts — “C’mon, c’mon, let’s have some fun.” As long as the hangover remedies work, it’s hard to campaign against it. - Buzz Bands LA
Plague Vendor
Plague Vendor
Plague Vendor (aka PLG\VNDR) is a young, raw, rock n’ roll band hailing from Whittier, CA. Their infectious drumming, snarling guitar chords, rhythmic bass are accentuated by eccentric lead singer Brandon Blaine’s howling vocals. With one of the most exciting front men in the LA music scene, Plague Vendor’s high energy live performances have been whipping crowds into a writhing frenzy at all the bad boy venues in LA.
