Biography

Through different music connections and friends in NYC and LA, Julian Casablancas+The Voidz have come together as band over the past four years. They’ve bonded over their love of beat driven, aggressive and avant-garde music with the power of modern harmonies to make it catchy and powerful. A punk band that can play any style of music, they take pride in their versatility. The band consists of Jeramy Gritter (aka Beardo) on guitar—a highly skilled guitarist as well as the self-proclaimed “trailer park hero;” Amir Yaghmai—virtuoso guitarist (grew up playing violin then listening to metal); Alex Carapetis (aka Young Pirate) on drums—bringing a whole new level of rhythm to rock music; Jeff Kite on keyboard—one of the founding members and key songwriters; and Jake Bercovici on Bass—the wise stabilizing anchor (musically and vibe-wise), as well as Stevie Wonder synth-bass wonder-child. With Julian Casablancas of the Strokes on vocals, as well as directing the whole thing (much like he did with early days Strokes), the band is very much a collaboration founded on old friendships and musical kinship. Their debut record, Tyranny, was recorded in NYC and is available starting September 23rd on Cult Records.

    Long Island, New York-based indie pop quintet Twin Sister make music that is dreamy, yet danceable. The five members of the group -- vocalist Andrea Estella, bassist Gabe D'Amico, drummer Bryan Ujueta, keyboardist Dev “Udbhav” Gupta, and guitarist (sometimes vocalist) Eric Cardona -- crossed paths while playing in their respective bands, ultimately befriending each other and forming Twin Sister in 2008. Their first EP, Vampires with Dreaming Kids, was self-released that year. After their first live show out of town, at SXSW, they toured with tUnE-YarDs and Xiu Xiu before putting the final touches on their second EP, Color Your Life, which followed in 2010. In 2011, Twin Sister signed to Domino Records and released their first full-length, In Heaven, that September. Now called Mr. Twin Sister, their self-titled second studio album will be released on September 23rd this year!
