THE BLANK TAPES
“We discovered this lo-fi unsigned band – which somehow evokes Belle and Sebastian, Pavement, and The Black Keys – in a San Fran coffeehouse (just like the old days.) Quick, somebody sign them!” -ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE
“The sunny sounds of L.A.’s Blank Tapes, who yoke a garage-pop sensibility to ferocious rock riffs.” -THE NEW YORKER
“Laid-back psychedelic rock and roll vibes cast from a time gone, fresh in the now, emitting a groovy energy, which got the crowd sway-dancing through the night.” -THE BAY BRIDGED
“Alternating between dreamy and driving, dappled with delirious solos and seductive harmonies. The Blank Tapes radiated Ultraviolet Californian chords” -BLACKMATTER BLOG
“Matt Adams and his band premiere perfect summer pop. The Blank Tapes are turning their sun folk sound into some of this summer’s best indie guitar pop, capturing the sound of golden West Coast pop like fire and lightening trapped in a jar.” -IMPOSE MAGAZINE
“Adams writes winsome pop tunes that snuggle up to you on the sofa and put a rosy glow in your cheeks. He’s a traditional pop-rock craftsman, but Adams also has pronounced folk proclivities, with many songs exuding a delicate, campfire aura. They go down easy, like the sun.” -OC WEEKLY

Recently named “NYC’s Hardest Working Band of 2017” by Oh My Rockness, they’ve played around 150 shows between five tours and in NYC since their inception. Their debut EP, “Keep Near,” was released on Exit Stencil Records in the fall of 2016, called “a glistening, energetic continuation of what Robert Smith so eloquently popularized…a wonderful example of post-punk that will have you excited about the genre again” by Noisey. Jon Schaefer of WNYC’s Soundcheck said their “music jets along on classic-sounding post-punk melodies, with guitars usually chiming rather than crunching. But, like all good post punk, there’s a bit of darkness lurking in the corners.”

Winter is the project of songwriter Samira Winter, who’s love for guitar music and nostalgic imagery inspired the dream pop/indie rock four piece. Samira grew up in Curitiba, Brazil listening to her American father’s punk records, and her Brazilian mother’s MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) tunes. While living in Boston during her college years she found a love for shoegaze which led to her collaboration with Nolan Eley who recorded and produced Winter’s first EP “Daydreaming” and LP “Supreme Blue Dream”. In 2013 Samira relocated to Los Angeles where the band currently resides working on their upcoming album “Ethereality.” Winter aspires to connect people to their inner child by making blissful, beautiful, dream pop.
