-"The Lulls submit to the pop music spectrum what could arguably be the most evocative rock song [‘Not Bad’] of 2018." — Vents Magazine
What’s in a name? For The Lulls, it’s washed out guitar and the rolling rhythms of water pounding the California shore; it’s the space between activity, down time, and the gentle rocking of waves and sleep.
It’s a band name that perfectly encapsulates its sonic persona: soft, dreamy indie that’s equal parts surf rock, post punk, and dream pop. Rutger Rosenborg (guitar, vocals) and Ryan Miller (drums) comprise the core of The Lulls, an LA/NYC-based band formed in 2015 at the hands of what feels like artistic fate.
Inspired by poets like Walt Whitman, who Rutger attributes to having “given America its first real poetic voice,” The Lulls possess the unique ability to create impressionistic musical journeys while remaining effective storytellers.
With 20 years of musical chemistry between them and an enduring friendship at the core of their working relationship, The Lulls are a band with undeniable depth, implicit relatability, and music you’ll want to play again — and again.

-"Velvet’s sound is equal parts Veruca Salt and Rilo Kiley — tough, crunchy rock & roll with super-sweet melodies. The band fits in comfortably with the current alt-rock scene in L.A., and beyond. This is a group tailor-made for summer festivals but equally at home in spit ’n’ sawdust dive bars." - LA Weekly
