~ cowboy boots on roller skates ~ The foundations of Misty Mtn date back to 2017 when vocalist Morissa Trunzo and producer Lucas Segall met working at a restaurant in Brooklyn, NY. The collaboration—initially a modest bedroom recording project—quickly proved fruitful. With vocal-harmonies channeling classic acts like Fleetwood Mac, crossed with forward-thinking electronic productions, Misty Mtn quickly carved out an evocative sound at the intersection of crisp mountain air and city lights. In 2018 they made their live debut during an opening set for Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and quickly became a staple of the New York indie scene before moving to Los Angeles in the summer of 2019 shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP 'Missed Your Call.’
L.A. songwriter Peter Verdell wants to play power chords. And sing with some fuzz on his vocals. And make music that both his modern brain and his teenage brain would be fucking psyched to hear on the radio. That’s the inspiration behind his new band Forever X2, who’s debut 6-song EP is what you might get if you crossed Blur with Beck and added a dose of millennialism. Verdell wrote all the songs in his apartment in downtown Los Angeles and recorded them in a hot, non-ac’d garage in Silverlake with producers Ari Berl and Yianni AP. Verdell played all the drums, guitars, keys, and vocals, and says about the process, “I wanted the songs to capture how I felt when I first started playing music. Informal and fresh, sweaty and loud.” Buzz Bands LA premiered the first single “Keep the Devil Waiting,” calling the song “crunch-tastic.” The 2nd single “Walk the Ocean” has received airplay from tastemaker Kat Corbett on KROQ Locals Only.
Pretty Sister was born in Los Angeles on the northbound 405 freeway in a 1968 Buick LeSabre, with “More Bounce to the Ounce” playing hazily in the background. Today, that same old-school nostalgia smothers the artist/songwriter/producer’s genre-bending sound, which shamelessly melds ’70s West Coast funk with an appreciation for a commercial pop hook. Pretty Sister has been featured on dance hits from Nause smash “Dynamite” (100M+ Spotify streams) to Madeon classic “The City.” Simultaneously, his “Z-Funk” sound has been making waves with his cover of “Pony”—a viral hit—as well as multiple HypeMachine #1s and Spotify success with tracks like “Come to LA” and “Thirsty.” But beyond any stats, the most impressive thing about Pretty Sister might be his versatility, as he writes, produces and sings everything himself, serving as a self-contained triple threat and bringing a 3am dance party with him everywhere he goes—and in everything he writes. Welcome to the Z-Funk era. *** *** MarcLo is an Artist/Producer/Songwriter and part of the production team The Monsters&Strangerz.
