"Band in a Box"

"Imagine dios(malos) and the Flaming Lips getting together in a garage and try to re-create backing tracks for the Beach Boys during its woozy late 1960s days, and your starting to get a handle on the South Bay quintet Heroes + Heroines."

"Conventional song structure takes a backseat to the band's up for anything approach." - The Daily Breeze


We released a self-published seven song EP in September of 2006.



Cute and cuddly have exploded musically in the new millennium, but few bands remember that you can't have sugar without spice. Heroes + Heroines respond by throwing shambling indie pop, twinkling childhood instruments and sheer electric noise into the same bubbling stew.

Five friends and relatives make up the Heroes + Heroines collective, playing everything from guitar to xylophone to duck whistle. Nick scares children with his shrieking vocals while Tony and Anjelica calm them as the cooing counterparts. Alex and Jason make up a steady rhythm section of basslines and beats, reigning in the freewheeling whole.

Heroes + Heroines are old enough to know there was life before the Strokes but young enough to have their youthful exuberance ring true. The band sits with the likes of Broken Social Scene, The Arcade Fire and dios(malos) as an adventurous pop group for a new generation. Check out the droning organ underpinning opener "The Boy Who Loves Birds" versus the out-and-out guitar rock of "Don't Tell" for a sample of their versatility. The drowning vocals of "NGO" sounds like My Bloody Valentine hitting an emotional epiphany, while "Bloody Dragon" incorporates a Brian Wilson-type choral arrangement into a chaotic noise pastiche.
