POLARTROPICA is the unconventionally alluring music endeavor of Los Angeles-based galactic dream rock artist, Ihui (eeway) Cherise Wu. Taiwan born and California raised, Wu has created a genre of ethereal synth psychedelia that you've never heard before - combining exquisite melodies, dreamlike classical string arrangements, and Polartropica's shimmering vocals. Her debut EP 'Astrodreams' was released on Lolipop Records and they are currently releasing a set of sparkly singles in preparation for their first full-length LP and tour later this year.
Inspired by the dance-rock groups of the early 80’s, mini bear is future-pop for a Post-Romantic generation. A classical voice graduate in music, L.A. native Lauren Kop uses analog synth sounds and modern electronic gadgets to write layered songs with sentimental melodies. Lyrics communicate intense loneliness and a fear of the de-evolution of love and detachment in our culture.
