Bio: Pocket of Lollipops will swirl together a mind melding indie rock frenzy leaving the listener with a dizzying organic sound taking you to another dimension or far in the past or future, embracing a DIY ethic.
“If you’ve been at all acquainted with the music scene in the past few years, you’ve likely heard of Pocket of Lollipops, a pair of locals who describe their own unique rhythmic flavor as “posh punk." The musical mainstays have been performing around these parts since 2008, and from the looks of their diligent show schedule and sizable home studio, they won’t be going anywhere soon. The band started as a duo, a wife-and-husband team consisting of singer and bassist Maitejosune Urrechaga (Maite for short) and drummer and back-up vocalist Tony Kapel. Music is more than a hobby for these two. Maite and Tony live together in the Grove, and practice and record at home, so they eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff. This airtight communication is felt all over Pocket's albums. And this rings doubly true for the band’s newest LP, Thanks Theo, as it may be Pocket's most elaborate effort yet. A swirl of jagged rhythms, the album’s highs recall post-punk heroes like Pylon. Urrechaga”
