    Bôa

    Alternative Rock

    British alt-rock band bôa have reformed following an incredible renaissance for their track “Duvet,” driven by TikTok fans the world over. Originally released in 1998, and placed as the soundtrack to cult-classic anime series Serial Experiments Lain, “Duvet” became a viral hit on social media towards the end of 2021 – sparking an ongoing, enormous interest in the group that lead to millions of streams across their entire catalogue. Now signed to Nettwerk Music Group, the song has continued to trend throughout 2022 and even entered an incredible third resurgence in May 2023.

    Following the initial viral trend that saw “Duvet” streaming into the millions, bôa have reconnected as a band and with fans to continue to build on that initial moment. Garnering well over 100 Million streams over the last year, and over 200,000 fans across social media, the growth of the band still continues.

    Fronted by Jasmine Rodgers, daughter of Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company), with Alex Caird on bass and Lee Sullivan on drums, bôa had mostly dispersed over the last few years with members following solo careers. Inspired by the growing interest in their past releases, they have garnered an exceptionally invested new fanbase – clamoring for more from bôa.

    bôa have returned to the studio in 2023 to record new original music, with new releases anticipated later this year.

    Rocket

    Alternative

    Rocket started in 2021, in an unmarked 8’ x 11’ practice space in Los Angeles, California. You wouldn’t know it walking past, but inside was the beginning of something special. 

    The four members of the band, Alithea Tuttle (Bass, Vocals), Baron Rinzler (Guitar), Cooper Ladomade (Drums) and Desi Scaglione (Guitar) had all known each other for a very long time. Alithea and Cooper went to preschool together and the pair met Desi and Baron in high school. Having all grown up in Los Angeles, the four were exposed to the city’s musical influences at a very young age. Going to shows, record shopping and having a deep appreciation for the Los Angeles music scene were all a prerequisite for being a part of the community. Each member had their own unique taste but they bonded over a shared love for noise in bands like Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and Dinosaur Jr. while also having an affinity for the ethereal and picturesque in bands like The Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo and Radiohead.  

    Before there was Rocket there was Desi and Alithea writing music in their room to pass the time during the lockdown of 2020. A large handful of demos were written with a huge sound in mind, but only so much noise could be made in a one bedroom apartment. It wasn’t until the two enlisted their friends Cooper and Baron to join that the full sound was realized. What started as a way to escape the mundanity of the pandemic quickly became an outlet for pure emotion and creativity. The group scraped together what money they had and rented the cheapest lockout space they could find and Rocket was formed. The group began rehearsing religiously, every day for months until their first show. That work ethic continues to this day, but in the beginning it was all they had to pass the time. 

    Their first show was an outstanding success, playing on a bill with their good friends, Milly. It marked the beginning of a run of stellar performances including playing the Wiltern with The Regrettes and the Troubadour with Starcrawler. Then it was time to settle in and start the recording process for what would become their first EP. Having moved out of their shoebox lockout and into Cooper’s parents back house, the group finally had the space they needed to create the sound they wanted. In an incredibly fortunate series of events, the band was lucky enough to come across a 1970’s Yamaha PM-1000 recording console that was donated to a local church across from Cooper and Alithea’s elementary school. With their “new” gear, they set out to make the EP entirely by themselves. What came out was a project that fully embraces the group’s DIY approach. The EP is noisy and huge while also being bright and memorable, a combination of sound that is born purely out of their unique experience and influences. 

    With an emphasis on  live performances, Rocket has managed to play a steady stream of loud and exciting live shows over the last year. With one tour under their belt, the group is slated to hit the road for the month of October with Milly, touring the entire country and parts of Canada. After the release of their EP, the group will be working on their first full-length album. The story of Rocket is one of life long friends who, for better or worse, have an unexplainable bond and chemistry that goes beyond friendship. They have accomplished a tremendous amount in their first year but that pales in comparison to their ambition for the years to come.
