Biography
Describing their sound as "Efficacious Poetic Fervor," Los Angeles’s Backnbloom flaunts a sleek mix of nostalgic, well-read indie rock with harmonious, complex sonic layers, grooving rhythms and a sprinkling of electric violin. It all started in a cramped Hollywood apartment where Lori Steele and Alberto Beka penciled ideas, programmed drums and keyboards while waiting for a break in traffic and yells from the alley to cease so that the emotionally charged vocals could be recorded. Unplugging the fridge also helped.

With their first show at an acclaimed club on the Sunset Strip and licensing deals with CBS, MTV, VH1 ESPN.com and E!, Backnbloom is planted firmly in solid ground.

The band released their first self-titled EP on 9.9.09, opened for Nouvelle Vague and is releasing their new single in May 2010.
