  • Megadose

    Megadose

    Power Pop

    Megadose is a power pop quartet from Seattle, fronted by Stephen Steen. The group delivers punchy pop rock anthems, freewheeling between new wave, slacker rock, and indie pop, punctuated by smooth guitar riffs and tight vocal harmonies. Their debut record, Wild & Free, produced by Trevor Spencer (Beach House, Valley Maker, Father John Misty), was released in September 2021.

    The group’s roots originate from Steen and guitarist Mikey Ferrario’s hometown of Anacortes, Washington, where the two were inspired from a young age by a small but powerful community of DIY organizers, artists and musicians.

    Splashy, playful, and sonically expansive, "Wild & Free" heralds a promising repertoire, and has garnered praise from Seattle's beloved KEXP and the worldwide blogosphere. Megadose is hard at work on their second album, expected Summer 2022.

    Avant-Garde

    somesurprises is the psych-dream-folk-pop project of Natasha El-Sergany, who sings and plays guitar, synth, and drum machine (pre-sets). somesurprises started as a solo project in Charlottesville, Virginia in mid-2013, and was at first a Soundcloud page used for collecting the best or first takes of obsessive late-night spontaneous phone recordings of original and cover songs. The project draws inspiration from emotionally-resonant movie scores, lo-fi/shoegaze legends, and decades of heartbroken country, soul, pop, and folk music.

    A move to Seattle in late 2013 introduced Natasha to kindhearted and talented folks in the underground experimental music community who counterintuitively gave her repeated opportunities to perform songs on the same bills as more abstract/"noise" musicians whose adventurous and egoless work consequently had a deep impact on her songwriting. 

    Throughout much of 2014 and 2015, she collaborated, performed, and recorded with harsh noise aficionado Samuel Henry (Plastic Boner Band) and gifted guitarist Dustin Williams (Mind Beams, ex-Stalebirth). In 2016 Natasha began performing with Josh Medina (Medina/Walsh), who adds warm atmospheric tones and effects on electric guitar. Later that year Nico Sophiea was added on drums and Andrew Scott Young on bass.

    Natasha released a solo cassette called "Voice Memos" in 2016 via Happy Accident Records and teamed up with Josh to record a new album called "Serious Dreams", which will be released by Eiderdown Records in 2017.
