Solarcade is the musical partnership between vocalist Paul Van and guitarist Pomilla. They are musically comparable to Depeche Mode and the Raveonettes in their use of outside musicians to fill out their sound. As a result, Van and Pomilla’s eight-year collaboration has yielded some achingly beautiful music. Their cinematic, nuanced compositions have attracted the attention of The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, who personally selected Solarcade to open select dates for his band’s arena tour in 2007.
Brian Reeves and Brandon Flowers have already discovered Solarcade - now it’s your turn. The band, now based both in Los Angeles and in Las Vegas, release their seven song EP, Songs for The Gathering on February 24 through A&I Records.
So glad Vincent and Linkara are open to awsome stuff like this. Wonder if Phelous would be willing too...

Charlie Drown is enigmatic force using sexuality, violence, passion, love and Magick in equal measure to craft a unique sonic vision. Straddling brutality and frailty with ease and effortlessly encompassing the feminine and masculine of music. The music of Charlie Drown, while undoubtedly infectious, is difficult to term, largely due to Charlie's broad spectrum of influences. Not content to be just another pretty face in rock star drag, Charlie writes, sings, programs, records, produces and plays many instruments and finds capable dynamic musicians for recording, as well as hand picking those who perform it. Ambitious and aggressive in the studio, she has earned the respect of her peers in the industry. Her no rules attitude enables her to create without structure. A "**** everyone" attitude and theatrical flair makes for some memorable live performances.
