Clans Gets Trendy

Clans is the moniker of Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Niko Monjarez. Clans has shared his new single “Trendy (Yes It's Trendy, Oh It's Sooo Damn Trendy To Be Cool)”. Monjarez is a multi-faceted musician: a producer/songwriter/vocalist/guitarist who composes and gives life to music in diverse genres including electronic, doo-wop, folk, and indie.

He was born and raised in Detroit before moving to Boston where he began performing in local clubs and venues. He grew up in a religious household, went on mission trips, was heavily involved in church retreats, but strayed away from structured religion when he was 18. At 19 & again at 21, he spent months traveling throughout the United States, first hitchhiking on foot and again in a gutted van. At 23, he moved to Los Angeles where he started producing music under the alias-Clans. His music is heavily influenced by his experiences while traveling the country and in his relationships.

Clans was created for those who don’t want to feel alone. Connecting to his tribe of friends, family, and fans is what Niko is all about.  He is introspective and his music is calming while communicating his love for others.

 

 

 

 

Hypophora Reveal New Album Details

South West post hardcore quartet, Hypophora, are pleased to reveal the details of their forthcoming debut album, Douse, released on September 21 via Easy Action/Zen Ten Records. Hypophora have had an impressive and busy twelve months, supporting the likes of post hardcore giants He Is Legend, ex- Dance Gavin Dance frontman Kurt Travis, UK alt rockers Vant on their recent farewell tour, as well as math rockers Allusondrugs. The band are gearing up 2018's festival season as well as an abundance of live dates over the next few months to help promote the forthcoming debut album release 'Douse'.

“We’d like to bring guitar music back to the mainstream but bring it back with important and relatable lyrical messages, unconventional song structure, odd timings and a fusion style approach to mixing genres." explain the band when talking about the forthcoming album.
