Acapulco Lips
Acapulco Lips. The name twists the tongue a bit—wait, is it Apocolypse? The band did indeed emerge from a damp Seattle basement, but that’s about the darkest visual of their origin story. Rather than a kiss with mortal doom and destruction, Acapulco Lips sound much more like a make-out session on a hot, salty beach, where summer is eternal and there’s no notion of the fun stopping any time soon. If they happened to be anywhere close to the apocalypse itself, they would definitely celebrate by picking up their gear and rocking the last living daylights out of the final party in the history of civilization.

This trio is bound together by a studied adoration towards the loud, reckless, rebellious sonic traditions of psych, garage, soul, and surf rock. What comes out of these obsessions is the interpretation of the band’s favorite Sixties sounds, from transporting guitar jangles, assertively revved up percussion, boogie-friendly bass breakdowns, topped with disarmingly charming coos and aahs.

Fine Prince
Fine Prince was formed in Seattle, WA during a state of reverie in the damp foggy grey, and delivered into the tender green spring. These elements are reflected in the band's sound, which ranges from exuberant and bright, to whimsical and wry. They are informed by 1960s pop and modern electro pop and rock, with danceable beats, electric guitars, cool synths, dreamy keys, and lush vocal harmonies.
