LA soul-infused indie trio ASHRR has shared their new funky space disco track “Fizzy,” available to stream now on all DSPs worldwide. “Fizzy” is the band’s first release of 2024, and will be featured on the band’s forthcoming EP ASHRR Meet Scientist / ASHRR Meet Felix Dickinson, out February 12th on legendary UK label 2020 Vision.
Upon signing in 2023, ASHRR became the first-ever US act to join their storied roster alongside notable artists like Crazy P and A Certain Radio. With “Fizzy,” the band takes you on an infinite cosmic disco post-punk odyssey, from poolside rooftops to underground dance parties and everything in between.
ASHRR was born in 2018 amidst the vibrant musical landscape of Los Angeles. Comprised of talented members Ethan Allen, Josh Charles, and Steven Davis, ASHRR masterfully combines vocal harmonies that illuminate a reflective euphoria, and their ’70s grooves pay homage to cocktails at sundown and the wild times of late-night loft parties.
Brought together through a shared love of swapping playlists, constellations aligned when Josh and Steven, both making music in Nashville, were introduced by mutual friends. Immediately bonding over their love of Big Band music, new ideas emerged due to the demands of its style and they began reinventing ’80s classics with an atmospheric, cinematic twist. Shortly introduced to fellow audiophile Ethan, the trio formed a brotherly bond and their first song “Medicine Man” emerged. Their debut LP Oscillator followed, offering good vibrations engulfed by dystopian darkwave and dark matter of the mind as it contemplated concern for what they, and everyone else, were witnessing in the world.
“Our sound has changed quite a bit from our first album through the early part of the pandemic and then as we began to emerge from the darkness, we felt like making music that made people dance while exploring more of our roots in soul, funk, jazz, and love of hip-hop, electronic, and experimental music,” guitarist/pianist Josh Charles said in a recent interview. “There is a unique sound to ASHRR that can’t really be replicated because of the way our voices blend and the diverse backgrounds that we cultivate in our music.”
