POPSCENE HAS ADDED THIS EARLY SHOW. THE LATER SHOW IS NOW DOORS AT 10 PM.
Some records feel equally at home hanging in the Metropolitan Museum of Art as they do resounding across the windswept polo fields of Coachella. A R I Z O N A transform guitars, keys, and vocals into brushstrokes of alternative, indie, and electronic dance pop on their 2017 full-length debut album, GALLERY [Atlantic Records/Artist Partner Group]. The New Jersey-based trio of songwriters and producers—Zach [vocals], Nate [guitar], and David [keys]—treat their music with the deliberation and diligence of a master painter. In 2016, the longtime friends began to make waves throughout the music industry. Augmenting a bond that dates back to their college days in Boston and continued through stints living and recording in Los Angeles and London, the musicians hunkered down in Jersey, uniting under the moniker A R I Z O N A. “We had all been through the ringer with music,” he sighs. “We got home and decided to do something with absolutely no bounds, requirements, goals, or marks. We just wanted to create for the sake of creating.” You could say their (non)plan worked. Signed to Atlantic Records and Artist Publishing Group last summer, the band quietly released a string of singles that would enchant countless listeners as the 142nd worldwide. They impressively average over 9 million unique listeners per month most-streamed artist in the world. In less than a year, “I Was Wrong” clocked over 78 million cumulative Spotify streams, “Oceans Away” surpassed 68 million Spotify streams, and “Cross My Mind” exceeded 18 million Spotify Streams, occupying coveted playlists such as “Today’s Top Hits” and “New Music Friday” on a regular basis. Heavy hitters such as Robin Schulz and Sam Feldt lent their remix talents to the tracks, while early acclaim came from Billboard, Nylon, Baeble Music, Galore, Dancing Astronaut, and more. Before the release of an album, sales and consumption crossed the 500,000-mark. In between making their television debut on CBS’s The Chef’s Classic, they set a robust festival run including stops at Governors Ball, Lollapalooza, Firefly, Hangout Festival, and more.
