As Nightmare Air, Dupuis, a veteran of L.A. shoegazers Film School (Beggars Banquet) and Miller, whose stark early-2000s acoustic album on Important Records melted hearts and faces everywhere, meticulously layer indie boy-girl harmonies, psych noise loops, fuzz-ripped bass and howling rock power into a fresh, upbeat sound all their own. With Detroit-raised heavy hitter Jimmy Lucido on drums, Nightmare Air put on a live show that's earned them heaps of praise at home — "possibly L.A.'s loudest band" (Scott McDonald, Surfing on Steam) — and across the pond — "awesomely epic layered sounds" (ArtRocker magazine, U.K.).
In their many combined years of touring, these road veterans have supported heavyweights from Smashing Pumpkins to The Jesus and Mary Chain, Swervedriver to TV on the Radio.
