Founded in a Southern Californian garage at the end of a $2 can of Coors in 2006, The Hannlons started as the Blameworthy, equipped with only a loaner bass and a Rock Band video game drum set. Now in New York, they can be found in the city's rock bars playing their unique blend of White Stripes rhymes, Black Keys Riffs, B.B. King Soul, and streetlamp barbershop harmonies.
Bob and Martha was formed in the summer of 2012 in an explosive firework of creativity and kittens. Self-described "old souls" from Brooklyn, NY, Aparna Muralidharan and Dan Bonsignore found each other on the internet before meeting at the Zombie Hut in Gowanus, BK. After a few beers, these two kindred spirits bonded over a mutual love of loop pedals (also kittens). After several hours spent in a basement rehearsal space, Bob and Martha emerged, executing poppy yet haunting melodies over complex and multitudinous guitar loops. The sound has since been described as psychedelic pop or experimental meditation-rock, and evokes similarities to Bjork, the Doors, and Modest Mouse. Bob and Martha is currently an active force within the Brooklyn music scene and is planning a small tour of the Northeast in the spring.
