northern america2Los Angeles “chill rock” quartet Northern American – Nate Paul, Shane Alch, Bruno Calenda, Augusto Vega – describe their sound as a picture of the city they live in… “From The Doors to Tupac, we are inspired by the same sunset, Los Angeles; the place that was and always will be.”

To get a slice of their glimmer & breezy summer sound, here’s the video for ‘Elysian’, taken from their debut album, ‘Modern Phenomena’, which will arrive May 18 on Heist Or Hit Records.

‘Modern Phenomena’ was recorded at Red Rockets Glare studio in Santa Monica with producer Raymond Richards (Local Natives) and mastered by Mark Chalecki (Local Natives/Avi Buffalo/Islands). The band will introduce their full length to audiences at this year’s SXSW Music Conference.

Check out their highly promising 2014’s EP ‘Happiness Hungover’.
