Up and coming alternative indie band blows Riverside’s mind away in Feb. with their catchy lyrics, awesome melodies and attention-grabbing vocals.
Seaside Audio is a San Bernardino based group composed of David Samuel Ajoku on the Keyboard/Synthesizer, Rolando Garcia on vocals/guitar, Roland Patrick Garcia on vocals/bass, and Luke Samuel Johnson on the drums.
The band members of Seaside Audio met during their time at Cajon High School in San Bernardino.
They became immediate friends when they discovered their mutual hobby for bike riding.
The band came together when the need to express ideas and creativity came about.
Roland and Rolando were in a band prior to Seaside Audio, but due to disagreements amongst the band members, the twin duo then decided to part ways and create something brand new.
For some time the band was made up of only three members, but after playing only three shows together the band knew they had something special.
Seaside Audio later decided to add a little spunk to their sound and brought on David to complete the package.
The group often writes songs in a spontaneous manner and in unison.
Usually a band member would bring an idea and during rehearsal the band molds the idea into a song by adding lyrics to eventually shape it into a full blown Seaside Audio song.
Vocalist Rolando describes writing their songs as sort of “dysfunctional at times but is worth it when we finally are all happy with it.”
The band has many musical influences beginning with Local Natives, and from Joyce Manor to Daft Punk and Coldplay.
Seaside Audio is very proud of having the chance to play all of their original pieces, but the band also enjoys playing covers from their favorite artists and musical influences.
Some of the group’s favorite songs to cover are “Super Rich Kids” by Frank Ocean and “Wide Eyes” by Local Natives.
Seaside Audio often plays in many small venues.
The band’s favorite places to gig at are Back to the Grind in Riverside and The Chain Reaction in Anaheim.
The all male group is hoping to expand their fan base and expose their music to different crowds.
Going back to one of the band’s performances in Feb., Seaside Audio not only had great sound quality but all kinds of energy.
It was extremely noticeable that the band was well rehearsed and ready to put on a show for the crowd.
Seaside Audio has an amazing live sound.
Their sound includes an experimental and alternative indie rock side but they also add a little funk to the mix.
The band played all original songs and left the audience wanting more, leaving them with an encore song.
Seaside Audio is a great local band to keep an eye out for.
They have a bright future and an original album coming out soon.
