Pleasure Beach is a band formed in Middletown, CT, in early 2015. Taking cues from post-punk and new wave groups, the band also cites the musical history of cities like Minneapolis and Los Angeles as influential. Taut guitar lines and warm synthesizer texture stretch and pulse through the band's sharp and present songwriting. At times tense and sparse, the arrangements also reach lush peaks where the group's playing interlocks in compelling form.
Reduction Plan is the musical project of Dan Manning, combining drum machine and guitar loops with ambient textures and dream pop elements. Their debut album Paradise was self-released in September 2015.
Quiet Giant is Danielle Capalbo, Jared Thompson, William Touri and Mark Almodovar.
