MOTHXR is Brooklyn's four piece band composed of vocalist Penn Badgley, bassist/producer Jimmy Giannopoulos (LOLAWOLF, Reputante), guitarist Simon Oscroft, and keyboardist Darren Will.
Penn Badgley says the band’s music lies "somewhere between DIY punk production aesthetic, new wave and R&B," naming influences like LCD Soundsystem, the Beastie Boys and Arthur Russell. He called their improvised songwriting "meticulous, but totally spontaneous."
In the last year, MOTHXR quietly released a number of songs that set the internet abuzz. “Easy,” was a top ten track on the Hype Machine and the song sat at #1 on the Billboard and Twitter Emerging Artist charts in May.
MOTHXR has sold out headline shows in New York, LA, London and Paris, and previously toured with San Cisco, Sir Sly, Har Mar Superstar and Streets of Laredo.
Traveling with minimal analog recording gear, MOTHXR spent four weeks recording their album between Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. The band recorded five songs in five days on their way to completing an eleven track record which will be released next year!
