Mixing the sunny swoon of sixties pop with a dark swirl of Warholian garage rock, *repeat repeat create their own geography, dreaming up songs rooted in the spirit of both coasts. Based in Nashville, TN, the band looks beyond the borders of their landlocked hometown and, instead, mix California surf culture and New York street smarts into the same track list. A blend of bloom, doom, and boom, they're “Dick Dale's snot-nosed grandkids.”
A self-described family business, *repeat repeat was founded by Jared Corder, — a former punk-rock kid raised on the sounds of Bad Religion and Black Flag. The goal was simple: to make edgy, guitar-driven music that nodded to the classic sounds of Jared's California birthplace, complete with hazy harmonies and surf-inspired arrangements. When the band's producer, Gregory Lattimer suggested that Jared's wife, Kristyn, sing with the band, the group began working on their debut album “Bad Latitude.”
*Repeat repeat hit the road in support of the album’s release in the summer of 2014. They traveled from city to city, while Nashville's top-ranked radio station, WRLT Lightning 100, supported the band with plenty of airplay back home. Most importantly, the bandmates saw the country and gained new perspectives. When it came time to write a second record, those perspectives came into play, inspiring *repeat repeat to write songs not only about themselves, but about the characters orbiting around them.
The band has toured with Beach Slang, opened for Neon Trees, and has a slew of major festival performances under their belt, including Forecastle, Firefly and SXSW. “*repeat repeat” has a sound that is bold, bi-coastal beach pop, at once coolly current and proudly vintage. Its sugar-coated music with a raw, real, rocky center that’s, and unmistakably *repeat repeat.
