L.A. songwriter Peter Verdell wants to play power chords, and sing with fuzz on his vocals, and make music that both his modern brain and his teenage brain would be fucking psyched to hear on the radio.
That’s the inspiration behind his new band Forever X2, who’s debut 6-song EP is what you might get if you crossed Blur with Beck and added a dose of millennialism. Verdell wrote all the songs in his apartment in downtown Los Angeles and recorded them in a hot, non-ac’d garage in Silverlake with producers Ari Berl and Yianni AP. Verdell played all the drums, guitars, keys, and vocals, and says about the process, “I wanted the songs to capture how I felt when I first started playing music. Informal and fresh, sweaty and loud.” Buzz Bands LA premiered the first single “Keep the Devil Waiting,” calling the song “crunch-tastic.” The 2nd single “Walk the Ocean” has received airplay from tastemaker Kat Corbett on KROQ Locals Only, and KROQ Locals Only will be presenting the band’s upcoming April residency at The Satellite in Los Angeles (4/1, 4/8, 4/15, 4/22).
Verdell’s previous band, Act As If, established themselves as indie standouts in the LA scene from regular bookings at venues like the Satellite, The Bootleg, Hotel Cafe, The Roxy, The Glasshouse, and the Troubadour, as well as landing syncs across ABC, CBS, Hulu, MTV, E!, NickTV, VH1, IFC,, and others.
