- Underground Beat Magazine

"Finally a band that sounds like they are from Seattle perhaps even Dublin but they are from California!"
- Hollywood Band Mag

"Hints of Bowie and Coldplay..."

“They give hints of Bowie without the multiple personalities and Coldplay with style. Van sings with a tenor that breaks your heart and heals it at the same time.”
- New Music Reporter

"Best elements..."

“Van embodies the best elements of Scott Weiland and Bowie as well as Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan.” - Antimusic Reporter

"Radiohead and Depeche..."

“If you took the dramatic elements of Radiohead, mixed them with the darker elements of Depeche Mode and topped it all off with some David Bowie, you’d have a pretty clear idea of what Solarcade is.” - Pulse Weekly

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.

The January 2005 issue of Star Magazine declared Solarcade as “in” and Coldplay as “out.” “It’s great to see this in print. It’s certainly an honor seeing our name next to theirs,” says vocalist Paul Van. A few more Solarcade highlights include being featured on the Howard Stern Show, several live radio and television appearances, in-store performances at Tower Records, and their #1 Top 40 hit “When She Comes.”

On March 15, 2005, Solarcade released their debut album, Aliens & Angels. Taking advantage of all opportunities that surface, Solarcade has performed on the Brit Bus Tour, SXSW, and “The Road to Warped Tour.” 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 Paul Van (voice), Pomilla (guitars), and Heath Cooley (drums), break down all barriers of genre and simply create music for the masses.
