School Nights Rock | DWNTWN Set to Perform at Bardot, Monday June 25th

.
If Bon Iver, The Knife and Robyn hung out at Hinanos, got trashed and made a baby…that would be DWNTWN”. Sounds like a dream, no?  When we saw this Kitsune America show review of LA based electro-pop band, DWNTWN, we had to go and see for ourselves.  We caught their show two wks ago at Echoplex and it felt like Xmas come early!  They rocked one cool song after another, including some ace covers (Angus and Julia Stone / Bruce Springsteen).  Crowd demanded an encore, but Jamie (lead singer) admitted they were out of songs!  Check out their dreamy new single, “Alamo Square” off their forthcoming EP, Cowboys avail June 26, and catch DWNTWN live at their EP release party @ School Night at Bardot in Hollywood, MONDAY JUNE 25.


DWNTWN’s song “See My Eyes” from the Kitsune America compilation, avail now on iTunes, is the top download from the compilation.  You can also hear it on Jason Bentley’s KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic radio show.  http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/kitsune-america-deluxe-edition/id520551759

“See My Eyes” is a work of synth-pop precision, dreamy but not delirious, breathy but not breathless, sweet but not oversaturated.” Buzzbands LA http://buzzbands.la/2012/05/17/premiere-dwntwn-see-my-eyes/
