Little Galaxies is a band formed in Venice Beach, California by Jeanna Fournier and Amir Eshraghi. From glittering guitars to smooth tropical grooves, their sound draws influence from psych-rock, dream pop, and folk while experimenting with multi-dimensional textures to create a sonic dreamscape of their own. Joined by Andreas Sandnes on bass and Lucas Crouch on drums, their enigmatic live shows hypnotize audiences as they explore the outer limits through interstellar tones, off-the-wall theremin performances, and vocals drenched in echoes that soar through the cosmos.
The first single "Out in Control" from the latest album 'One with the Waking Sea' has been receiving airplay by Jose Galvan on KCRW and Amazing Radio. The latest single "Waking Sea" is currently in rotation on LA's KCSN 88.5FM and it was selected by world-renowned DJ and tastemaker Nic Harcourt as his "Fresh Squeezed Track of the Day" in July. The song was featured by Kevin Bronson on Buzzbands LA and his radio show, Byron Gonzalez on Latin Alt Radio, and the Witching Hours on KXLU 89.9FM. You can also find Little Galaxies featured in the September edition of Music Connection in their "DIY Spotlight" by Brett Callwood.
Following the release of their debut album Patterns in 2013, Little Galaxies played shows and festivals all over Southern California, toured up the West Coast and to Austin, Texas. Their music has caught the attention of several notable music blogs including Earmilk, Buzzbands LA, OC Weekly, and The Bay Bridged. They won The Deli Magazine's "Emerging Los Angeles Artist of the Year" award with a feature in their SXSW print edition and Radio KSCR's "Best Music Video" & "Best Feel Good Video" awards for their single "Tonight." The featured song for the award-winning documentary SOS: The Salton Sea Walk was composed by Little Galaxies at the request of the Mayor of the Salton Sea's West Shores.
After a 3 year hiatus when Fournier was seriously injured in a car accident, Little Galaxies made a return to the stage in 2018 with packed shows at LA's premiere venues, residencies and festivals including The Satellite, Bootleg Theatre, Hotel Cafe, and Echo Park Rising. On the verge of releasing their 2nd LP with a headlining performance at the legendary Troubadour, the show and tour was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Little Galaxies is now coming out of the dark with their new LP "One with the Waking Sea" out now on Coconut Spaceship Records. The album was inspired by Fournier’s car accident, taking listeners on a sonic journey through her awakening and making peace with her fears after this life-altering event. Recorded and co-produced by Sejo Navajas at the historic 4th Street Recording Studio in Santa Monica (The Beach Boys, No Doubt, Incubus), mixed by Andreas Sandnes, and mastered at Capitol Studios by Grammy Award-Winning mastering engineer, Evren Göknar. Lookout for Little Galaxies back on the stage this Fall!
