THE START
Aimee Echo and Jamie Miller formed theSTART in the Fall of 1998, citing a mutual love of dark wave, dance music and art rock. The prophetic nature of their name revealed itself quickly,as they would be among the first of the crop of the new New Wave, alongside bands like the Faint and Le Tigre and Ladytron. Over the course of two acclaimed albums and one EP, theSTART's modern eclecticism and rock hooks have earned them a devoted following and a reputation as trendsetters of this new millennium. Additionally, they've won considerable acclaim for unfailingly compelling live sets.

STATIC AGE
Emerging from the idealistic side of punk rock and inspired by the last 30 years of alternative music, The Static Age have evolved their own sound -- one that infuses melody, atmosphere, and a pulsating back beat to bring forth an unmistakable urgency and honesty in their songs. The unique weave of Andrew Paley's beautifully weathered vocals and textured guitars alongside elegant keyboard melodies sitting atop the backdrop of Adam Meilleur's punchy, chorus-drenched bass and Tim Alek Mulley's tempered drums has resulted in an emotionally resonant and danceable collection of songs that sounds like nothing else before it.
