MOTHXR, the four piece band from Brooklyn, NY features vocalist Penn Badgley, bassist/producer Jimmy Giannopoulos (LOLAWOLF, Reputante), guitarist Simon Oscroft, and keyboardist Darren Will. In the last year, MOTHXR quietly released a number of songs that set the internet abuzz. ‘Easy’ was a top ten track on the Hype Machine and the song sat at #1 on the Billboard and Twitter Emerging Artist charts in May.
Penn Badgley says the band’s music lies “somewhere between DIY punk production aesthetic, new wave and R&B,” naming influences like LCD Soundsystem, the Beastie Boys and Arthur Russell. He called their improvised songwriting “meticulous, but totally spontaneous.”
MOTHXR has sold out headline shows in New York, LA, London and Paris, and previously toured with San Cisco, Sir Sly, Har Mar Superstar and Streets of Laredo.
