At first listen of Social Club it may be hard to imagine that the indie/ rock/ pop wave that crashes over you was born from a local San Diego hip hop group. Or perhaps, upon deeper listening, it will not.
Lead singer John Levan and bass guitarist James Spratley emerged on the San Diego music scene with a fresh, original and soulful sound appropriately named “Pull.” It didn’t take long for that magnetic sound to grab the attention of drummer Jeffrey Litzman. A jam was scheduled for the three to mingle. Love was made. Sparks flew while magical musical songs were born, reformed, and given fertile soil to thrive. This fertility inspired implementation of synth and keyboard, which in turn brought the need for a fourth member. Fate reeled local musician Thea Tochihara in shortly thereafter, and there’s been no looking back.
With influences ranging from one end of the spectrum to the other, the result are songs versatile enough to keep you listening, tonality and textures that keep you wanting more, beats that make you move, and melodies that you want to hear again. And again. And again.
