Little Galaxies is a band formed in Venice Beach, California by Amir Eshraghi and Jeanna Fournier. “True to their name, the band does sound a bit like something from outer space” (Bay Bridged). Their sound draws influence from psychedelic rock, pop, folk, and soul while experimenting with inter-dimensional textures to create a sonic microcosm of their own.
Fournier and Eshraghi started Little Galaxies while falling in love in Venice Beach and first emerged in 2013 with the release of their debut album Patterns, recorded, mixed and co-produced by Sejo Navajas at the historic 4th Street Recording Studio in Santa Monica (The Beach Boys, No Doubt, Incubus). Following the album, 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." Most recently, Little Galaxies composed the closing song of the documentary SOS: The Salton Sea Walk at the request of Mayor of the Salton Sea's West Shores, Kerry Morrison.
After a 3 year hiatus due to Fournier incurring injuries from a car accident, the band made a triumphant comeback earlier this year with shows at LA's Townhouse Venice, The Satellite and The Viper Room. With the addition of their new rhythm section— Christian Johnson on drums and Andreas Sandnes on bass— Little Galaxies' sound and live show have evolved to a higher dimension. Their energetic performances have been drawing in fans new and old, hypnotizing the audience as they watch the band explore the outer limits through their expansive collection of effects pedals, theremin playing, and cosmic dancing. Little Galaxies are ready for liftoff as they gear up to release their sophomore LP later this year.
"Through headphones, Little Galaxies' music, upheld by singer Jeanna Fournier's smoky vocals, can blow you away, so just imagine what it can do during a live set” (OC Weekly). Come to a show this to see for yourself, and be on the lookout for their new album!
