"Etta Place Goes Outlaw"

New Haven band Etta Place, doesn't solve any of the mysteries associated with their bandit namesake. Their sound is equal parts indie and rockabilly, using a plethora of instruments from synced strings to electronic noise (alongside the use of almost the entire percussion family).

The result is smart orchestration in tracks such as "Before the Bumblebees Die," where looped percussion creates a somewhat creepy, somewhat peppy electronic feel. You can catch the band, which seems destined to become the next soundtrack to an endearingly quirky movie (see: Little Miss Sunshine or the complete works of Wes Anderson) at a rare gig at Cafe Nine on Thursday. Seems that bandits and schoolmarms do share some common ground. - Alexis Fitt - New Haven Advocate

"CD Review"

Etta Place, How You Live Your Life Can be Fatal ( Place's sound—pretty chords against a scratchy backdrop with cymbals to spare—is not for everyone. (My roommate beseeched me to put on headphones.) Still, the band's hit on an intriguing aesthetic—these six tracks don't sound like each other, or like any other band. When it all comes together, as on "Streaks in the Night," Etta Place is dense and beautiful - Viviene Nereim, New Haven Advocate

EP- How you live your life can be fatal (2007)

The title track has been played on Los Angeles station Indie 103.1



Etta Place got together in early 2007 when Georgia moved from London to Los Angeles and joined Lilly and Scott living in the notorious LA underground venue Il Corral.

In the process of recording their debut EP 'How You Live Your Life Can be Fatal' in the club's main room, their unique sound emerged which they termed 'streamo', a mix of lo-fi, indie, and stream of consciousness emotional.

When Il Corral closed its doors for the last time in January 2008 the band relocated to New Haven CT, where they recruited two new members and are now heavily involved in the burgeoning indie scene.
