Following our premiere week, we got the awesome guys of Lone Kodiak who are teaming up with VENTS for the premiere of their cover for FKA Twigs’ “Pendulum”, where we see the band slightly changing the drum beats from the original song for a more instrumental and somewhat dreadful (in a good way) version of the track. This is the fourth song on the band’s cover series.
A decade ago, emberghost was Portland’s next big thing; filling1400 person venues & flying to Sony Music, but when co-vocalist/keyboardist, Sarah Jennings, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, all that changed. She passed away 3 years later, but the remaining members have been building something new with LA-based, Lone Kodiak – an indie rock outfit coined Sigur Ros meets Lady Antebellum or Smashing Pumpkins meets Celine Dion. They have always created something that is, at once, epic and intimate, having an affinity towards music with intense emotion and power – a la Band of Horses, Bon Iver. Typically, the music features layered male and female vocals (usually featuring a different beloved female vocalist). In spirit of trying something new & maintaining their respect and admiration for today’s female artists, they left out a female this time. The group released their first single “The Hurt Happened Here” in 2015, which found love from Chris Douridas (KCRW), bringing it to over 25K plays on SoundCloud and soon after signed with Riptide Music Group.
The Los Angeles atmospheric rock trio, Lone Kodiak is releasing an EP of covers, with producer Johnny What (BRAVES / Rostrum Records) and legendary engineer, Adam Moseley (U2, Beck, Rush, Wolfmother, Nikka Costa). Every Tuesday in August – each a re-imagined tribute to female artists they adore, admire, respect and are inspired by.
