Dark Dazey is an independent, LA-based psych-rock band with a flare for genre bending. They are an ambitious and dedicated group of UCLA alumni or current students who have worked together for years to create and share music with communities throughout California. Notable performances include UCLA’s Spring Sing, Far Out Fest, and COASTALONG Festival. They also planned and executed a California tour on their own in the fall of 2019.
Their unique sound is broadly a blend of psychedelia, punk, dream-pop, Americana, and Latin music. Dark Dazey draws influence from classic and modern rock experimentalists the likes of Pink Floyd, Santana, Grateful Dead, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, and Vampire Weekend. Their current discography features a number of psych-rock singles (2019), a jammy live album titled Dark Dazey Live from the International Space Station (2020), a psych-punk-thrash EP NARCS (2020), and an anti gun violence country single, NRA (2020).
They are dynamic and diverse multi-instrumentalists, visual artists, audiophiles and recording engineers who are dedicated to their craft of creative composition and performance, always exploring new sonic avenues. Dark Dazey records all of their own music (including most concerts that they play). This do-it-yourself attitude and passion for sound has solidified their ability to see their vision out to completion.
Golf Alpha Bravo is the adopted moniker of Australian singer/guitarist Gab Winterfield. His is a unique brand of Surf Blues – a siren to a childhood of growing up on the coast of Sydney Australia: an eternal loop of surf, skate, Frusciante and Hendrix … Golf Alpha Bravo uncovers a new authenticity. Stripped of any embellishment, Golf Alpha Bravo presents live as a classic trio. Gab sings and plays guitar accompanied with bass and drums. Wavey verbed up guitar tones, dissolve into gravelling howls from the guitar amid mid and up tempo grooves & melodic bass lines – pooling together to create a cool colored collage, reviving the essence of groove from our collective stone age.
Bluest is an indie rock band orchestrated by the longings and hauntings of Noelle Huser. Sifting through dreams and nightmares, Huser finds solace in serenading her ghost, turning self- soothing acoustic guitar folk and bedroom pop songs into full-band bops that pay homage to 90s/ early 00s angst pop and alt rock icons. Formed via some quality pandemic trauma bonding in true “School of Rock” fashion out of a group of kids rock camp instructors and their friends, Huser is joined by Erin Szalda-Petree on lead guitar and backup vocals, Duncan Szalda-Petree on bass, Ally Fradkin on keys and sax and Caleb Tutty on drums. They plan on releasing their chilling debut album Cold Sweat in 2023.
Cosmic Sans is a western-psych five piece from Missoula, Montana – with Jake Howell on vocals, Lane Ulberg on bass, Cole Bronson on drums, Seamus Jennings on lead guitar, and William “Stos” Stoskopf on rhythm guitar.
