We’ve just been tipped off on this outfit out of Atlanta, Georgia (pronounced Le-SEE-boo Grand). Singer, Tyler-Simone Molton, has a buttery voice which makes the single “Hush Hush” feel like it’s floating on air. If the video flies past you too quickly, fear not. The audio version of the song is considerably longer!
Tyler-Simone grew up in a diverse neighborhood in the suburbs of Atlanta, a somewhat conventional-looking place with a surprising degree of creative vitality. There, she was exposed to a great variety of musical genres. Molton loved the local hip-hop heroes (Outkast, Lil Wayne), but also hung out with punks and indie kids. She also loved listening to late-70s new wave bands like Talking Heads and Blondie, punk bands like the Clash, and 90s rockers Green Day, and Nirvana. She did not cling to one genre as her identity.
A transplant from New England, John moved to Athens, GA while playing bass for Ace of Heart Records’ alt-rock band Crab Daddy. He eventually moved to Atlanta where he played with a variety of local rock and funk bands.
Renaud shared Tyler-Simone’s interest in synth-drenched indie-pop, and the two sunk deeply into an unexpected songwriting frenzy. The band’s first release, The Legend of Miranda, is set for an October 4th release.
