A little about ourselves
We could tell you that we started as two friends who grew up together in South LA, adding and subtracting band members like mad scientists until we stumbled upon the current combination and magical things started to happen. We could tell you about about our eclectic range of musical influences and how that amalgamation of backgrounds has shaped our current sound. We could tell you about our past projects, our future aspirations, and the things that occupy our time between those spaces. But ultimately, does any of that really matter- to you, to our listeners, to anyone other than us? Ultimately, our bio is our music. This is where, in the three-ish minutes of your busy day, we get to tell you who we are. The loud, driving pulse of our self-taught drummer. The steadying, laid back confidence of our 'band-dad' surfer bassist. The back and forth of our melodic guitarists, a conversation between a founding member and one of the newest members, simultaneous nostalgia and progressive spunk. The juxtaposition of ethereal pop vocals and raspy punk energy, like your head is the 405 at 6pm on a weeknight. We are still figuring out who we are together, and we'd love for you to be part of the story.
The Sounds of "Disco"
Sounds Like Disco is an American indie-dance band from Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2013, the group is composed of five members: Sergio German (Guitar/Vocals/Synth), Miguel Lopez (Guitar), Jake Shafer (Bass/Synth), Callie Ray (Vocals), and Jimmy Zendejas (Drums). Influenced by the likes of Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club, and Metric; Sounds Like Disco mixes indie-electronic rock with disco break beats to create a synthesis of post-punk dance-rock.
Sounds Like Disco is known for an upbeat atmosphere and energetic live performances found by audiences to be both infectious and engaging. As a result, the band has been invited to perform at several festivals, including the Chocolate and Arts Festival in downtown Los Angeles, and the Konsept and Arts Music Festival in Orange County. Most recently, SLD performed live, on air for KXLU 88.9fm as part of their “Livation” program series. As LA locals, Sounds Like Disco has performed in many of LA's hottest music venues/clubs.
