Blending the synthscapes of ‘80s film scores with contemporary indie pop, San Francisco-based duo OVRGRWN has developed a remarkable creative formula that is richly atmospheric, sweetly melodic, and frequently willing to tap into its dark side. Balancing a seriousness in the music with genuine enthusiasm, the group’s songs captivate listeners with immersive production techniques and a serene singing style.
OVRGRWN consists of Brandon and Danae, two California natives who met in 2012 when Brandon answered a “drummer wanted” ad on Craigslist to be part of a garage/surf rock project Danae was organizing. The two formed a creative synergy over six years of playing together in the band before branching out into new musical territory with OVRGRWN.
The group’s debut EP, O Well, landed in 2019 and immediately resonated with fans of synthwave and indie pop music. The early success of the album put them on the radar of retro synth label FiXT Neon, which signed the group to a deal in 2020. O Well was re-packaged and re-released through the label later that same year, and OVRGRWN has new material scheduled with FiXT Neon for early 2021.
