"a star is born"

After searching all over both North & South America for the best new band, Aloft Hotels and NYLON are excited to announce My Body as the winners of Project Aloft Star 2013! The Brooklyn-based, by way of Portland, synth-pop two-piece, consisting of Darren Bridenbeck and Jordan Bagnall, beat out over 122 talented entries to snag this year's winning spot. The duo developed their signature sound after spending six months making some badass bedroom tunes. With their warm ethereal vocals and electric beats, this band to watch will have you dreamily dancing and swooning. Don't believe us? Just listen to “Make it Good�.

Project Aloft Star was created in 2010 to give emerging artists exposure to a wider fanbase through concerts and promotions nationwide.

"The Week in Pop: My pop-culture picks"

3. New Cat, My Body. The Brooklyn-based duo's first single is lush and sadly beautiful, and it makes me realize not every summer jam needs to overflow with cheer. I can't wait to hear more from them. - USA Today

"Stream: MY BODY, “Make It Good”"

Newish Brooklyn-via-Portland synth pop duo MY BODY are entering a crowded field of similar sounds, but something about this song’s second half, built around the repeated line “You can make it look good,” really charms me, as if the pair is well aware of their peers and is just Will Smithing the other MP3s you could be listening to instead. While you’re here, check out “New Cat” too, released last month. - The Fader

Bio

My Body is Darren and Jordan. Founded in 2012, bred by the Portland music scene, the duo came together over their need to create a new sound. Six months in a locked bedroom assembling sounds into songs, My Body was born. Backed by a live band they gained momentum in the Portland music scene opening for the likes of How to Dress Well, Pure Bathing Culture and Wild Ones. Relocating to Brooklyn, NY in 2012, they reformed as a synth-pop two-piece and began playing shows.
