In 2016 MAGIC GIANT moved bodies and souls in over thirty cities across North America, touring with bands such as Mike Posner, The Revivalists, and Beats Antique; selling out venues from the Troubadour in Los Angeles to Mercury Lounge in New York CIty to The Silver Dollar Room in Toronto; and playing festivals ranging from Electric Forest to Lightning in a Bottle. They have been announced on many festival lineups for this summer, including Firefly and WayHome.
Their latest single ‘Set on Fire’ has almost 4 million streams and 350,000 video views. Since their self-release it charted #4 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 and #1 on KROQ’s Locals Only. The LA indie band has built a reputation for its infectious sing-alongs and communal live experiences, blending folk instruments (banjo, fiddle, harmonica) with big drums and dance rhythms. They recorded their debut album from their solar-powered mobile recording studio and are set to release it May of 2017.
Orange County based trio ARMORS has been fast approaching the mainstream with a unique blend of soulfully driven vocals layered over dark and melodious instrumentals. The group seamlessly bridges the gap between Alternative and R&B, whilst maintaining all the foundations within the indie band landscape.
While their previous EP Collisions provided the perfect platform to garner fans all over the Country, the band (Vocalist Olen Kittelsen, Guitarist Kody Buxton and Synth/Keys Sam Beresford) is gearing up to enlist a much larger group of listeners into the fold with their next release. Boasting intricate melodies backed by explosive beats and emotionally driven choruses, Genesis stands to draw attention from audiences across many genres.
The song features production and engineering by up and coming LA based Producer Ryan Spraker (Killer Mike, Daye Jack), who was able to capture Kittelsen’s evocative falsettos, bringing a deep connection to the opening of the track and throughout the whole song. “Genesis portrays the loss of a long time significant other, under very surprising circumstances, and the emotional trials of being left with nothing and discovering how truly insignificant you are in the world.” Explains Buxton.
With an array of singles slated for release over the next coming months ARMORS is without a doubt set to become a group you will grow quite familiar with.
