Dear Boy

Dear Boy

Dear Boy is the torch bearer of lyric forward guitar music and melody focused indie rock. The band has become an important voice in the LA underground music scene, crafting bittersweet songs inspired by late 70's / early 80's post-punk and early 90's britpop, seen through their unique modern lens.

With three EP's and a bouquet of singles, Dear Boy has earned an immense and loyal following, selling out headline shows from the Troubadour to The Teragram and touring with the likes of The Psychedelic Furs, James, Pete Yorn, Day Wave, Rogue Wave, Sunflower Bean, DMA's & Peter Murphy. 2019 also saw the band performing at the Corona Capital festival in Mexico City and recording a live set on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic.

In 2020 Dear Boy completed their debut full length album and in 2021, signed with Last Gang Records. The release will be Dear Boy's first collaboration with the legendary label. Produced by the band and mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, Phoenix, M83), the record also features contributions from Day Wave, Hazel English, Rogue Wave, AFI & Ian Hultquist of Passion Pit.

Further details are not yet public, but Dear Boy describes it as a "forever record." They can't wait to hear the band you start after you finish listening to it.

Dear Boy is a band of best friends from Los Angeles, California. Ben Grey (vocals / guitar), Austin Hayman (guitar), Keith Cooper (drums) and Lucy Lawrence (bass / vocals).

 

Candy Cigarettes

Dream Pop Indie Rock

Candy Cigarettes

From one of the Pacific Northwest's most beautiful cities, Portland, comes Candy Cigarettes, the music moniker of the one-man band, producer, vocalist, and self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Lane Mueller. Mueller has received a growing reputation in Portland's competitive DIY scene, opening for established artists like Crumb, Guerilla Toss, and Corridor. His self-titled debut dropped on May 5th, 2016. Unforgettable tracks like "Selling Price" and "Molded Ocean" ordain Mueller's LP as one of the best debuts of the year. Also, don't miss the Beach Boys influenced choruses and psychedelic beach pop for "Sweet Love." Beginning in his mid-teens, Mueller taught himself to play guitar, bass, piano, and drums. His biggest musical influences include Beck, Elliott Smith, Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Radiohead.
