Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus are the masterminds behind ADULT., a Detroit-based band that has been making music for well over a decade at this point—the kind of music that calls to mind the post-punk/dark wave era of the early 80s, with a signature electro-dance twist of their own. They founded their own label Ersatz Audio and Thrill Jockey. Aside from making music, they also take part in creating films, phtoographs, and paintings.
LA's Soft Metals formed in 2009 after Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall met at a DJ night and connected over their obsession with analog synthesizers and the shadowy, sultry, untamed expressions of underground electronic music. Their early collaborations paired Patricia's delicate vocals and introspective lyrics with Ian's solo sketches. Soon they moved on to writing music together, building songs from wild, improvised sessions in Ian's home studio. Their genre blurring brand of voltaic pop draws inspiration from a spectrum a sources including krautrock, synth wave, and techno.
Flaamingos are the latest signing to Felte, and their music drags the classic sounds of their favorite bands into the 21st century, in the process creating a sound that's entirely their own. In fact, it's the work of a bunch of (black-clad) Angelenos. Pounding analog drum machines. Rumbling basslines that are as moody as they are thoroughly danceable. Atmospheric washes of echo-laden synth textures. Jangling guitar sounds. And choruses that resonate with emotion.Its music runs a gamut from dancefloor-friendly synthpop, through brooding post-punk, to dark, rhythmic atmospherics.
