Biography

Los Angeles' decidedly noir indie-pop darlings, ROBOTANISTS released their third album, Plans In Progress, produced by Danny Kalb (Ben Harper, Beck, Karen O, Feist), in 2011. The quartet, often compared to artists like Florence + The Machine, Jenny Lewis, Oh Land, Class Actress, and others, continues to build a strong following for its energetic live shows, stunning videos and infectious and expertly-crafted songs.

PRESS:
****************************************
“Female-fronted indie at its finest, a soulful voice cast over booming guitar…“On/Off The Ledge” is as sincere as it is dancy, adjectives that normally take effort to pair together.”
* RCRD LBL

“Beautiful, breathy vocals; style for miles; and epic compositional turns that pull you in without pretense.”
* QRO Magazine (USA / UK)

“Seductive and ethereal, Plans in Progress melds the mechanical (synthesizers, midi-sequencing etc.) with the mortal (i.e. real instruments played by humans) akin to the legendary lads from Abingdon, Oxfordshire along with the sleek sexuality (and grooves) of latter day Blondie and Everything But The Girl.”
* Amplifier Magazine (USA)

“Evocatively dreamlike without sacrificing command or precision. [Plans in Progress] moves consistently through a spectrum of hushed melodies, crashing choruses and driving rhythms. The Robotanists’ third full length album may be the shortest, but it’s the most relentless and auspicious in what lies ahead for the four piece.”
* Indie Rock Reviews (USA)

“Robotanists set themselves apart from most bands, keeping an upbeat and interesting style at the same time as being deep and sensual.”
* The Deli Magazine (USA)

“[Ellquist's] achingly candied vocals give such dream-pop chansons as “Terminal A” and “The Ghost You’re Haunting” a romantically yearning quality, as her musical co-conspirator Daniel DeBlanke surrounds her with shimmering layers of guitar and electronics… [her] sugary melodies and charismatic allure contribute to Robotanists’ considerable commercial potential, but one hopes that DeBlanke will continue to contrast such pure-pop ambition with the artful embellishments and occasional experimentation that distinguish the new album.”
* Falling James, LA Weekly (USA)
