about

From down the end of Los Angeles, the barebones gravepunk duo Band Aparte strips down and combines elements of gothic rock, synthpunk, and beachy lo-fi as macabre appreciation simmers in the gut of the city. Vocalist Brian Mendoza effortlessly channels Joy Division and Nick Cave, crooning into a death bouquet with his shirt unbuttoned. But he's not doing it to imitate Morrissey's aesthetic -- Band Aparte's shows are fast and fierce, and the crowd works up a sweat at every venue they play.

It's a dangerous mixture that has crushed nights alongside such bands as Cruelty Code, Roses, Ghost Noise, and Terminal A.

"[Cherry Chapstick] is a smooth, synthy track that evokes Nick Cave and Joy Division and will have you sad-dancing your way to the end of the day." - Noisey

"Band Aparte sounds like uncomfortably romantic synth-punk with Ian MacKaye reciting gloomy sermons written by Peter Hook. During a live show, well-dressed singer Brian Mendoza likes to attack his audience, while crushing roses and shaking his pompadour like a Latino Elvis gone nutso. He's also one of L.A.'s most fearless and unhinged performers, which is refreshing in a scene littered with depressed Kurt Cobain clones." - LA Weekly
