Aloha Radio is authentically familiar, painting a buzzing neon sign of California punk rock reggae soaked in reverberated foot stomping surf rock while standing on a foundation of ukulele driven anthems and west coast hip-hop rhythms.
Aloha Radio is Lauren Mulderrig-lead vocals, ukulele and guitar; Alex Barnett-lead guitar and lap-steel; Andrew Russell-bass; Chris Hori-drums. On stage the band’s chemistry is palpable. A family of otherwise lost souls intertwined by a love of music lead by the empowered soul seeking and flirtatious, Lauren Mulderrig. Lauren’s one of kind expression channels a sweet tenor voice reminiscent of the girl rock powered 90’s such as Edie Brickel and Shirly Manson, the punk rock energy of Gwen Stefani and Haley Williams, and the existential angst of Jenny Lewis. Together, Aloha Radio crashes the stage with arena-sized chants, high flying jumps and a contagious electric vivacity. The band's latest release, "Golden State of Mind", is a rich soundscape is teeming with a California-Hawaii connection. Recorded at Kona Inn Studios, home to bands such as Pepper and Pennywise, the songs articulate Aloha Radio’s finger on the pulse of present-day indie rock as well as their love for tropical reggae music. Layers of catchy guitar riffs, bass lines and beats demonstrate the band's songwriting skills and pop sensibility. The album’s modern production features heavy 808’s, warm pads and unforgettable electronic synth leads making it a meaningful sonic adventure.
