Join us in welcoming June’s Echo Residency band: Brass Box!
With enchanting dream goth/ shoegaze tracks, Brass Box take listeners on a journey through life, death and the darkness that swells beneath the surface. Duo Ammo Bankoff and Neil Popkin originally met several years prior at an underground new wave/ goth party in Los Angeles. The bands in which Bankoff played (Tête, Black Flamingo) occasionally shared bills with Popkin’s bands (War Tapes, Rituals). Due to their musical connection both musicians naturally collaborated. Popkin then brought in guitarist Matt Bennett (War Tapes) and drummer Pablo Amador (Rituals), to round out the heavy sounds of Brass Box. Since joining forces the quartet has assembled lush compositions of melody and noise while recording in their Downtown Los Angeles home studio. Some describe the sound as a mix between My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins, but you can decide for yourself.
Watch their latest music video below for their song “Tragedy – A Prayer”
