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.
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. Most recently, world-renowned DJ and tastemaker Nic Harcourt premiered their single “Another World” on his radio show on LA's KCSN.
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 and gearing up to release their LP "One with the Waking Sea" this summer. 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), the LP and title track “Waking Sea” will be released this summer on Coconut Spaceship Records.
“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.” ”
