Brick + Mortar
Brick + Mortar
Brick + Mortar is a two-piece indie pop outfit from Asbury Park, NJ. The duo consists of Brandon Asraf (guitars/vocals/programming) and John Tacon(drums/programming). Best described as controlled chaos, the band combines choppy rhythms, smooth bass lines, tempestuous drumming and honest lyrics, all of which culminates in something that is just as likely to show up on an indie up-and-comers list as it is to show up on a DJ's playlist – something that is evidenced in the band's role as a remix magnet for artists such as Baauer. Brick + Mortar is one of the few bands who can conjure up images of both carousels and cocaine, combining dancy with dark and pop with despair.

Coming off of the release of their EP, "BANGS," Brick + Mortar is touring relentlessly, opening for Imagine Dragons, Icona Pop, and Jimmy Eat World, as well as performing in the summer festival circuit at mainstays including Made in America, Loufest, and Lollapalooza.

The Habits
The Habits
The Habits frontman, Wolf Bradley, got an early start in the creative process, when at two-years old, he awoke one morning to find a strange girl sleeping in his room. Hidden underneath the couch covers with her hair fanned out on a pillow, was Misty Copeland, an aspiring ballerina who later became one of the most famous dancers in the world and the first African American soloist for the American Ballet Theatre. Wolf's family moved Misty in to live with them so that she may train at his parents' studio in San Pedro, California. The two shared bunk beds, and Misty became Wolf's de facto sister, second mother, and a pivotal muse in young Wolf's life. As he watched her devote her life to ballet, Wolf discovered his own passion for music and sought to emulate Misty's drive and creativity in the music he created. First with a set of drums that he discovered at the age of 7.
Surprisingly, the creative crossover between elegant ballet and rowdy rock music was a natural thing for Wolf. His mother, Cindy, was not only a top-rated ballerina but also the lead singer of a seminal female punk band in the 80's. In fact, it was at his mother's ballet studio that he met his bandmates - Andrew Macatrao and Chance Famighetti.
Stay strange. Live loud. Keep crazy.
