Biography

The Fontaines are a new wave rock band based in Los Angeles, California.  Charlotte Fontaine (vocals) and Hank Fontaine (guitar) began writing songs in 2014.  The siblings are joined by Chrystian Kaplan (drums) and Daniel Zuker (bass).

February 2017 saw The Fontaines drop their debut single "Evaporate," which has been streamed hundreds of thousands of times and has received airplay on commercial and satellite radio as well as bringing The Fontaines to The Troubadour for a sold-out headlining performance in support of their dual EP releases, "Playgirls" and "Playboys."

On May 17, 2018 The Fontaines will be releasing their most anticipated single yet, "Freak," the band's fourth release of this year.  "Good Times," "Between Us," "Beso," and "Freak" show off the group's sultry, indie tinged rock sound with a pointedly cohesive and confident direction.  Coming off two sold out performances at The Troubadour and appearances at SXSW 2018 and the Spring 2018 High School Nation Tour, The Fontaines are preparing for a headlining show June 21 at The Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles.  On January 11, Stryker named single "Playboys" his 4:20 Pick of the Day on legendary LA radio station 106.7 KROQ FM.
