New Orleans-born quintet, Stoop Kids, has created a psychedelic conglomeration of genres that both honors and reinvents the classic sounds of hip-hop, doo wop, soul, and surf-rock.
Stoop Kids, with their “diy pop band” approach, has a distinct knack for taking bedroom recordings and producing a high quality finished product. They have been nearly entirely self-recorded and produced thus far. The five-piece band is fronted by Griffin Dean, whose many hats include lead vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, rapper, and producer. Rounding out the rest of the group are Thomas Eisenhood on baritone saxophone and harmonies, Sam Fruend on bass and harmonies, David Paternostro on guitar and keys, and Joe Tontillo on drums.
