okay, so here is the indie band of the day, about a year and a half ago, i found these guys in a movie i really love called 'world's greatest dad' . when i heard the song i immdiately searched for the band and what ifound blew my mind, they're called ''the deadly syndrome'' and not only is the singer fantastic and gorgeous but the band is so good, they made me play them on repeat for four days in a row, now here is the band info:
The Deadly Syndrome is an indie band based in Los Angeles, California.
The band was formed in 2006 by William Etling, Jesse Hoy, Michael Hughes and Christopher Richard. In fall of 2006 the band was signed to the record label Dim Mak Records.
Immediately after being signed, the band began working on its debut album, The Ortolan, which was released worldwide on September 11, 2007 and produced by Nico Aglietti and Airin Older of the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
The Ortolan received favorable reviews from Allmusic, The Los Angeles Times, The Tripwire, Pitchfork Media, and French rock magazine Les InRockuptibles.
Prior to the album's release, the band toured in California with Oh No! Oh My! and Let's Go Sailing. In July 2007, they toured with Hot Hot Heat whose frontman Steve Bays cited their sound as one of his new favorites in an interview on Rolling Stone.
