Io Echo
Io Echo
IO ECHO is Ioanna Gika and Leopold Ross. Currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album which combines grand songs with unique textures such as Japanese koto harps and Chinese violins, the band have created towering tracks with a distinctive sound early listeners have been calling "the leaders of Grunge Goth" and "New Orientalism." Their unique blend of pop melodies, dark 90′s industrial influences, and far eastern elements caught the attention of early admirers such as Florence and The Machine, TV on The Radio, and The Big Pink (for whom Leopold also plays bass) who each offered the band recent high-profile support slots on their tours. Perhaps most notably, io echo were hand picked by Trent Reznor to open for Nine Inch Nails at the band's last ever tour show. Io Echo have also recently composed the score to the Harmony Korine + James Franco film "Rebel." Their unique, genre pioneering style, both musical and visual have tastemakers proclaiming them as ones to watch. Their hometown of Los Angeles is buzzing that in time io echo could take their place next to The Cure, Garbage, Cocteau Twins, and PJ Harvey. Not bad for a band who has never released an official album.

White Teeth
White Teeth
White Teeth is a San Francisco based new wave post punk pop garage act that formed in 2012.

The sound can be described as having melodic elements of new wave like Tears for Fears or The Cure, rhythmically driving reminiscent of late 70's punk glued together by clean jangly guitars that give an element of garage rock.

After an incubation period and several lineup changes the band recorded BEWARE AND WELCOME EP at Tiny Telephone with the help of engineer Matthew Colecchi.
