Lostboycrow is an idea that pays homage to new beginnings and a poignant heritage, best described as a pop-minded vocalist’s dark love affair with the world of modern R&B. Still shrouded in mystery, the idea of Lostboycrow is the foundation for what we know about him as a musician.
Sonically, the Los Angeles artist delves in to the world of introspective dance music. He takes pride in his thoughtful and provocative lyrics, but doesn’t forget to cater to the current Pop-centric audience. Lostboycrow gives a voice to the voiceless through his storytelling ability while finding the perfect medium between Pop, R&B and Electronic music.
Lostboy has already strutted his stuff live in concert playing the prestigious SchoolNight LA, headlining Neon Gold’s Popshop West at The Echo, a Nation-wide tour with indie songstress, VERITÉ and his own Co-Headline alongside his friends and collaborators, Flor.
Prelow offers beats rooted in hip-hop bounce, humming and hypnotic guitars, and wiseass lyrics that read like Wes Anderson lines, Prelow -- Jesse Aicher and Matt Walsh -- capture coming-of-age in New York City nightlife with wisdom and wit. By 2015, the boys had quietly stirred up a serious buzz as their single "Mistakes Like This" popped off on Soundcloud. It eventually went on to amass over 3 million plays on the platform before generating 6.8 million Spotify streams.
Releasing the “Why Does Everything Happen So Much” EP, they attracted acclaim from Fader, Noisey, Nylon, and more in between a marathon 50-date tour supporting Harlem's own Skizzy Mars. Emerging on the other side inspired by all kinds of new experiences, Prelow hunkered down in the East Village and began work on what would become their 2017 full-length debut preceded by the single "Guitar Beat" and "I Don't Wanna End The Night."
Kuinka celebrate Earth Day at Pub
With Rainbow Girls, Sunday, April 22, 8 p.m., Pub Station Taproom. Tickets for the all-ages show are $10.
The name Kuinka (coo-WINK-uh) comes from the Finnish for “how.” How does a band continue to evolve artistically and challenge themselves while staying true to their own roots? For Kuinka, the answer comes in the form of letting go: a joyful acquiescence to their cumulative love of songwriting and shared experience, regardless of genre or instrumentation. Brothers Zach and Nathan Hamer, along with Miranda Zickler and Jillian Walker, came together in 2014 to form a unique breed of string band; one proudly defiant of preconceived notions of what fits under the label 'Americana'.
Their 2014 debut The Wild North, which propelled the band out of the woods and on to stages across the country, was followed by their 2016 breakout LP “The Heartland.” Both albums were recorded at the famed Bear Creek Studio in Woodinville, Washington, (Fleet Foxes, Metric), and led to featured performances at dozens of festivals and several successful national headlining tours.
