This is the band that everyone has been listening to, waiting, and hungering for...Solarcade can be defined with one word: songs.

Biography

Known for their unique sound, infectious hooks, and honest lyrics, LA-based Solarcade mixes alternative rock with a strong pop foundation. Over the past year and a half, Solarcade has garnered a cult-like following, due largely to the band’s ability to create music that leaves the listener humming their melodies for weeks. Solarcade’s stage presence is undeniable. Visually, they produce high energy with an uncompromising need to fully entertain and leave the audience always wanting more.

Solarcade formed in Los Angeles after Heath Cooley found Pomilla in a local music magazine. The two quickly began collaborating songs together, staying aware of the vocal and melody placement yet to come. After constructing five instrumentals, Cooley and Pomilla began searching for the right blend of vocals. They wanted a front man with the zeal of Bowie and the swagger of Dave Gahan. After screening and auditioning eighty-seven vocalists (yes - that's 87), they finally came upon Paul Van. He not only captures elements of the two artists, but also has the earnest warmth necessary to make the listener really feel the song. Bass player Melanie Dupre was brought into the mix in June 2005. With a background rich in music education and performance, Melanie effortlessly rounds out the rhythm section of the band. She possesses a vast knowledge of the industry, and her passion for performing makes Melanie a perfect fit for Solarcade.

On March 15, 2005, Solarcade released their debut album, Aliens & Angels. They have played a variety of venues, large and small, and have also been featured on the Howard Stern Show, several live radio and television appearances, in-store performances at Tower Records, and held the top spot on New Artist Radio's Top 40 with “When She Comes.”

2006 will see Solarcade releasing another EP which will include a rockin' cover of U2's "All I Want Is You." The band continues to take the music world by storm by providing their fans with intellect and empathy through haunting lyrics and steadfast compositions. Together, Solarcade’s members break down all barriers of genre and simply create music for the masses.

Lyrics

How You Remember

Written By: Van, Pomilla, Cooley

WAITING, WAITING FOR THE DAYBREAK
STARLIGHT COVERS MY EYES
TELL ME, TELL ME THAT YOU WANT ME
I KNOW, I WANT YOU TOO

TELL ME HOW YOU REMEMBER
HOW YOU REMEMBER ME

I’M WAITING, WAITING FOR THE DAYBREAK
DARK SKIES, NO SURPRISE
TELL ME, TELL ME THAT YOU WANT ME
I KNOW, YOU’LL SEE ME THROUGH

TELL ME HOW YOU REMEMBER
HOW YOU REMEMBER ME

LET THERE BE LOVE TONIGHT

Land of Love

Written By: Van, Pomilla, Cooley

STAY ALIVE IN THE POURING RAIN
SUMMER HEAT WILL COME AGAIN
GO ON, TAKE MY HAND
I’LL WALK YOUR PROMISED LAND

COME LAY WITH ME - WALK WITH ME
OVER THIS LAND OF LOVE - WE CELEBRATE
OVER THIS LAND OF LOVE

GIVE MY EYES TO THE MORNING SUN
YOUR FLESH I COME UNDONE
LOVE IN DISGUISE
WE’LL LEAVE THE WORLD OUTSIDE

COME LAY WITH ME - WALK WITH ME
OVER THIS LAND OF LOVE - WE CELEBRATE
OVER THIS LAND OF LOVE

I’LL GIVE MY LIFE FOR YOU
A PIECE OF ME FOR YOU
THY KINGDOM COME THY WILL BE DONE
OH SO THEY SAY

COME LAY WITH ME - WALK WITH ME - AND CELEBRATE
