Blanco Niño (LA): Two brothers (Nate and Nick Bennett) formed Blanco Niño in early 2018. The two have been playing together since childhood and when they sing in harmony their history of playing and songwriting becomes truly apparent. Sonically, Blanco Niño is best described as haunting, bright, and dreamy, with very pleasant melodies and harmonies, ethereal keyboard work and ambient tones. The brothers dropped their first EP “Bundle of Joy” in early 2018 which includes four driving, yet melodic tracks. Picking up Ben Tinsley (Hindu Pirates) to take care of all things percussive, the three dropped their new self-titled EP “Blanco Niño” on all platforms. With the addition of Kris Miller (Mellow Grass), the final four continue to write, record, and tour new material. They’re focusing on new songs and videos dropping in the very near future.

Cosmo Gold (LA): LA’s Cosmo Gold debuted live at SXSW 2017 as a trio led by front woman Emily Gold under the moniker, Velvet. The former outfit released two singles in 2017, “How Do You Know” (PLAG Records) and follow up “Even If I Tried”. Since the bands inception, Gold has recruited Maffei (Sugar Candy Mountain, Electric Magpie) , Burns (Triptides), and Deluccia (Valley Queen). The group now writes and works as a collective, and are finishing their debut EP which will be released under their new name, Cosmo Gold, June 2019. “The collaborative process is working beautifully. [Their] sound is equal parts Veruca Salt and Rilo Kiley — tough, crunchy rock & roll with super-sweet melodies. The band fits in comfortably with the current alt-rock scene in L.A., and beyond. This is a group tailor-made for summer festivals but equally at home in spit ’n’ sawdust dive bars.” -LA Weekly
