When it comes to refreshing sounds in the indie music scene, DLG. and Koastle are names you'll want to remember. Dave De La Garza, better known as DLG., has been turning heads with his unique blend of pop, alternative, and electronic vibes since he moved from Austin to Los Angeles. His music is like a breath of fresh air, mixing catchy beats with his signature soft-raspy vocals that just draw you in. This latest track made by these 2, “STRANGERS,” is a sweet shoutout to his girlfriend, symbolizing their instant and deep connection from the get-go.
DLG.'s journey in music has been an exciting one. From his early days in Texas to his current life in LA, he's been creating tunes that are not just songs, but stories that resonate with his listeners. His tracks like “OVER MY HEAD!” and “KUNG FU” have been making waves, but it's his earlier hit “Inside My Eyelids” that really put him on the map, with a staggering 28 million streams. There's something about his music that's relatable yet uniquely his own, a blend of influences ranging from Glass Animals to Tom Misch.
Koastle, the dynamic duo from Orange County, bring their own flair to the mix. Andy Mueller and Brett Beaudette are all about creating experiences with their music, inspired by greats like Flume and Odesza. Their project "Koastcards" is a bold move, offering a new track every week for a year, each one a new adventure in sound and style.
