Founded by Jake Ingalls, who has spent the last few years as a touring member of the Flaming Lips, Spaceface offers a refreshing approach on psychedelic rock, with transparent '70s references but also strikingly modern elements that make this trick something to behold. - Cool Hunting

Memphis six-piece Spaceface is led by Jake Ingalls, a touring guitarist and keyboardist of The Flaming Lips, which makes a lot of sense the second one puts on today’s featured song. “Sun Kids” is hazy, psychedelic pop music, elegantly composed. It may be these tumultuous times, and the fact that so much protest music was being made during periods of similar unrest, like the ’60s, that when Ingalls and band sing about “children of the sun” it seems they’re making political and social commentary. Yet, even while rock ‘n’ roll has always confronted injustice, it’s also a form of escapism from ugly realities. As Spaceface’s soundscapes and extended dreamy harmonies float around your headphones, it’s easy to forget the continuing winter weather or the fact that it’s a truly bizarre 2017 so far. - KEXP


Spaceface is led by Jake Ingalls who also plays guitar and synthesizer in The Flaming Lips. And the show reflects that influence. Spaceface works to bring the concert grade experience to a club level employing a DIY light rig and other theatrical elements. They have two Ep's that were released in the past year, the first recorded at Pink Floor Studio in OKC and second at Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN. They have been a touring band for 3 years playing shows and festivals all across the country, including Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, AL, SXSW in Austin, Treefort Music Festival in Boise ID, and ACM Fest in OKC. Some of the acts Spaceface has toured and worked with include a broad range of genres like Phantogram, The Flaming Lips, Bright Light Social Hour, Young Buffalo, Prince Rama, Swimm, Morgan Delt, Stardeath and White Dwarfs and Electric Wurms. Spaceface is putting out a new LP called "Sun Kids" via Behind The Curtains Media in early march and will be touring in support of it nationally.
