Kučka
Behind the moniker, Laura Jane Lowther records and produces her music from found sounds and analog synths. Whilst oft compared to Björk, Kučka’s wholly distinctive, hypnotic vocals are perfectly woven through unconventional song structures to truly make for an incomparable, otherworldly experience.

In 2013, her vocal abilities scored a big fan in rapper A$AP Rocky. After initially being sampled on Rocky’s hit single Long Live A$AP, he asked Laura to add fresh backing vocals on it and also to Fashion Killa, both appearing on his #1 Billboard album. Kučka was also named in the top five under-the-radar Australian bands by the UK’s The Guardian and took home Best Experimental Group at the WA Music Awards.
Mobley
Mobley
Cutting vocals in the woods behind his college dorm. Mixing in the backseat of a sedan. Sneaking into the music department after hours to teach himself to play new instruments (and sneaking out before the faculty arrived in the morning). From the start, Mobley's work has been marked by solitude, ingenuity, and a drive that could only be called obsessive. Whether you experience his music on record or at one of his live shows (on stage, he's electric), the passion is palpable. Mobley grew up all over the world, from the Spanish Mediterranean to the California coast. Perhaps it's because of this itinerant childhood that he finds it so hard to sit still.
Over the last few years, he's composed dozens of pieces for stage and television, played 150+ national tour dates (with the likes of JUNGLE, Mutemath, & Wavves and at festivals like Savannah Stopover and Float Fest), and recorded (then scrapped) two whole albums in pursuit of the songs that would become his forthcoming full-length debut, Fresh Lies. The album, on which Mobley plays every instrument, defies easy classification, drawing liberally (often simultaneously) from indie rock, R&B, and pop sensibilities. He's equally at home on a playlist next to The Weeknd and TV on the Radio alike, while his electronic, dub-dabbling production style calls to mind the intricate work of artists like James Blake and Thom Yorke.
