Foster The People – best known for their chart-topping hit “Pumped Up Kicks” – formed in late 2009 when band mates Mark Foster, Cubbie Fink and Mark Ponitus got together in Los Angeles. Foster, originally from Cleveland, OH, had been writing and recording music since his youth but it wasn’t until Foster The People was formed that Foster’s music for the band’s debut release, Torches, was ready for airtime. In early 2010, “Pumped Up Kicks” debuted on the Internet and quickly infiltrated the radio airwaves. Following the popular single, word-of-mouth propelled Torches to No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts.
As described by PasteMagazine.com, Cults, a.k.a. Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin are both 21, have only been making music together since February, but have already converted fans with their exuberant, danceable garage rock. After releasing their first single on Gorilla vs. Bear’s Forest Family label, the duo quickly became a fan favorite and fulfilled fans’ hunger for more with a multi-city tour. “It’s hard to get out of that hype of being an Internet buzz band and to actually make a name for yourself,” said Follin.
Reptar likes to first and foremost make people dance. Since SXSW 2011, the upbeat indie rock band – made up of Andrew McFarland, Ryan Engleberger, Graham Ulicny, and William Kennedy – has been on the rise in the indie music scene. With their funky mix of upbeat rock drumbeats, synthesizers and vocals with great range, Reptar continues to receive rave reviews.
