WhO are THE LAGOONS?
Seamlessly blending soul, jazz, synth-pop, and rock, The Lagoons combine simplistic harmonious beats with infectious melodies to create chill, groovy music. Originally from Los Angeles, California and based in Austin, Texas, brothers Joey Selan (keys, vocals, saxophone, producer) and Ryan Selan (guitar, vocals, drums, producer) grew up writing music together, officially forming The Lagoons in 2015.
Growing up as trained jazz musicians with the music library of predominantly classic rock and jazz, The Lagoons strive to create a chill electronic-pop sound with the underlying tones of jazz, rock, and funk. Working together with the well-renowned studio engineer Dave Collins, The Lagoons have released two self-record EPs thus far – a self-titled EP released June 2015 and a sophomore EP entitled Hypocrisy released November 2015.
The duo’s signature sound of a jazz and soul synthesis — slick, easy — comes from their third studio EP Gems, which is slated to be released Fall 2016. The Selan brothers currently perform around Texas as a 2-man show, creating a unique live electronic performance with influences such as Daft Punk, Cherub, Chromeo, Tycho, The xx, Gorillaz, Steely Dan, Rufus du Sol, Dave Matthews Band, Classixx, Phoenix, Alt-J, and Zero 7.
