Line Up

Incubus

Incubus is an eclectic rock band that consists of five men from Calabasas, California. Brandon Boyd who does vocals and percussion, Mike Einziger the guitarist, Ben Kenney plays bass, Jose Pasillas is on the drums and DJ Kilmore who’s on the turntables. The band's name may seem a peculiar choice to fans, as an incubus is a type of demon that, in mythological lore, comes in the night and has sex with women while they are sleeping; it seduces them in their dreams. The story behind the name is that the band needed to think of a name hours before their first show and, after a few failed choices, Mike looked in a dictionary and chose "Incubus" almost at random.

Portugal. The Man

Portugal. The Man is an experimental indie rock band from Wasilla, Alaska (formed in 2004), but currently based in Portland, Oregon, USA. The band's line-up currently consists of singer/guitarist John Gourley and bassist Zach Carothers, Gourley's wife Zoe Manville (backup vocals/percussion), guitarist Eric Howk, drummer Jason Sechrist, and keyboardist Kyle O'Quin. The band has released eight studio albums (the latest being 2017's "Woodstock"), two #1 hits on Alternative Radio, scored a #4 hit in the USA with "Feel It Still", and won a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

It consists of Alexis Taylor (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Joe Goddard (vocals, synths, percussion), Al Doyle (guitar, vocals), Owen Clarke (synths, guitar) and Felix Martin (percussion). The combination of Taylor's ethereal, high-pitched vocals with Goddard's warm, low pitch and the band's blip-blop electronics creates a dreamy sound. The band is best known for the hit singles "Over and Over" and "Ready for the Floor".

Neon Trees

Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a New Wave pop powerhouse," Neon Trees first united in 2006 and instantly attracted acclaim and attention for their kaleidoscopic sound and affirmative vision, showcased on 2010's extraordinary debut album, HABITS. The album proved a phenomenon from the start, ascending to #1 on Billboard's "Heatseekers Albums" chart following the breakthrough success of its lead single, "Animal." A true international smash with 75 million streams to date, "Animal" reached the upper regions of an array of airplay and sales charts, including #1 on Billboard's "Alternative Songs" chart - the band's first ever #1 single. Now certified 2x platinum by the RIAA, "Animal" eventually received "Top Alternative Song" honors at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, while also being featured in a long list of TV, film, and video game soundtracks and advertising campaigns. PICTURE SHOW followed two years later, highlighted by the 4x platinum certified blockbuster, "Everybody Talks", Neon Trees' first single to reach the top 10 on Billboard's "Hot 100" as well as their first ever #1 on the "Hot AC" chart. The song has been streamed 130 million times to date. POP PSYCHOLOGY made a stunning top-10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2014 release - Neon Trees' highest chart placement to date. The album's popular success was driven in large part by the multi-format smash single/video, "Sleeping With A Friend," now certified gold by the RIAA for sales and streams in excess of 41 million.

The Provo, UT-based band is currently hard at work in the studio, preparing the eagerly awaited follow-up to their 3rd album, 2014's acclaimed POP PSYCHOLOGY. "It seems strange to say this but: We're back," wrote Neon Trees in a recent Facebook post. "It's been three years since our last album, and after years of being a band together, touring the world and living the dreams of our youth, we took an important break, one that's refreshed all of us and refocused what our band is and what we want to do next...Thank you for being with us all these years, and we can't wait to show you all what we've been up to and what we have in store."

Their 2014 debut White Noise was an alternative chart hit in the U.S. and U.K., setting the stage for their pulsing sophomore effort, All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell.

Brothers John and Stephen Gomez, met Nekokat's Cameron Walker-Wright at a house party in 2017. They collectively agreed to meet up again later for a day in the studio. Already working as producers and songwriters for hire outside of their bands, they eventually wrote and recorded a set of songs with Walker-Wright singing lead, John Gomez on guitar, and Stephen Gomez on bass. Calling themselves Twin XL, the trio released their first two singles, "Good" and "Sunglasses," in late 2018. They debuted with the EP How to Talk to Strangers in 2019.

Wild Belle

Wild Belle are an adventurous brother-and-sister duo whose eclectic, richly detailed indie pop is informed by reggae, Afrobeat, soul, and many other genres. Chicago-area natives Elliot and Natalie Bergman grew up playing music, with Elliot eventually studying jazz saxophone at the University of Michigan. The siblings first started playing together in 2006, when Elliot invited Natalie to tour as a backup singer/percussionist with his Afrobeat fusion band NOMO. Natalie sang on NOMO's 2011 single "Upside Down," the group's first vocal tune since their early recordings. Soon after, the duo began working on Natalie's songs and Wild Belle was born. A year later, the duo released the single "Keep You" and drew label interest after a high-profile show at Austin's South by Southwest Festival. In 2013, Wild Belle released their debut album, Isles, on Columbia and the duo subsequently performed on several television programs and toured across the world, making appearances at major festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza. Following the darker sophomore effort Dreamland (2016), the duo went the independent route and released their audacious third album, Everybody One of a Kind, through their own label in 2019
