FRANKIIE is an independent dream-rock band from Vancouver, BC. They formed in December 2013 for a one-off gig where they had only met a few weeks before. The chemistry between them was undeniable and over the last several years the four members have become amazing friends and adventure seekers, taking their music from Haida Gwaii near Alaska to the southern tip of the Baja in Mexico.
Ponytails came to fruition in March 2016, spawned from best friends Harvey Merrit (vocals, bass) and Travis Goeres’ (lead guitar) love of pizza and the theme music of Sylvester Stallone movies. Liam Ness (bass, rhythm guitar, vocals) and Graham Serl (drums, vocals) round out the band’s sunburnt surf sound.
Palm Haze is a Canadian based band founded by Anna Wagner and Lucas Inacio in 2015. The idea originally came up when they wrote their first song, on a single afternoon at a beach house in Ilhabela, Brazil.
They blend alternative rock, shoegaze, and trip-hop influences, to create a sound that's both heavy and smooth - think of fuzzed guitars and soothing vocals under a palm tree shadow.
