L.A.’s BEGINNERS is the project singer Samantha Barbera and producer Nick Ruth. The pair came back together after they both went to support their former drummer in Foster the People, who was in their previous project together, Malbec. At that point, Barbera was in a punk band Holy Fever and Ruth was producing artist, including Active Child and Mikky Ekko, most notably. What started as just a fun little project turned into something more serious after the first night when the pair realized that they “were onto something.”
On March 25th, they will be releasing their debut self-titled EP. The five songs that make up the EP gently navigate and weave elements of garage rock, electronic, and pop music. You will hear vocal intonations similar to the likes of Santigold and musical construction that could fit quite well next to Phantogram. There are no filler tracks on this release and, with that being said, you get the impression that this duo are still just scratching surface of their potential with even better material to come. We have the EP below for you consume in its entirety before its release next week. You can pre-order the album here.
