“Manatree formed around 2009 when four longtime friends were entering high school. Drawing from early pop and rock influences like the Strokes and Wolf Parade, mathy bands like Maps and Atlases, and the exploratory qualities of Wilco and Broken Social Scene, Manatree wrote high energy, math-influenced pop songs with a simple lineup of two guitars, bass and drums. These efforts culminated in the band’s self-titled debut album, released on Egghunt Records.
After Manatree’s self-titled release, the band became gradually more interested in electronic music, everything from pop-oriented artists like Sylvan Esso and Frank Ocean, to the more experimental Actress and Oneohtrix Point Never. While keeping true to their guitars-bass-drums lineup and energetic live performances, the band is now beginning to incorporate elements of this music into their vocals, compositions and instrumentation. Manatree hopes to blend these influences for a unique and personal release later this year, which they have recorded and plan to release in July.”
Your Dream Coat
“Do you love me? This is music for soft hearts and long sighs. Find the best in darkness and darkness in the best. Walk fearlessly into that place where we can cry. Your Dream Coat does not shy away from sentiment. Your Dream Coat is drums, two guitars, and some voices. LIVE YOUR HEART NO REGRETS.”
“Several shitheads scream and somehow make music. ‘Butt is tight and loose at the same time, it’s perfect’ -Kuni”
“Grandma is your mom’s mom and your dad’s dad. Grandma is lush swirling loopy closet pop. Grandma is the solo project of Leslie Hong of Haybaby. Grandma is so proud of you.”
