Rococode
Rococode’s strength lies in the contrast between dark and light. Vancouver’s Andrew Braun and Laura Smith infuse their hook-filled songs with lush synth textures and duet vocals, resulting in an infectious sound that Andrew calls "a marriage of our contrasting personalities.”

The pair formed Rococode in 2011 and released the debut album Guns, Sex & Glory the next year. The shadowy Panic Attack EP arrived in 2015 and the sophomore full-length Don’t Worry It Will Be Dark Soon followed in 2016. Meanwhile, the group’s music charted on commercial and campus radio across North America and they logged countless miles in the tour van in Canada, the U.S. and Europe.

LEAN is a collaboration between two session musicians, writers and producers Stephen Johnson and Kyle McCammon. The pair met as hired guns on a recording session and their partnership grew from there. Between the two of them they’ve performed with the likes of Banks, Sam Dew, Doe Paoro, Ofelia K and Josiah & the Bonnevilles. Their newest single 'Come Back' was premiered on NYLON who said catchy new track that is anything but overly sweet. “Come Back” is a shimmering summer tune with a darker edge. Their sound can be described as dream pop or make out rock. If you listened closely, you might have caught their song Lucid Dreams in TBS’ Search Party last winter.

LEAN will release a full length LP, YEARS, in the coming months, which was written and recorded at their studio in East LA (Lean-To Studios). Of their upcoming LP, Kyle says, “I had this concept to make a bunch of 90's hip hop beats and then try to build indie rock songs on top of them. With Stephen’s ear for hooks it came together effortlessly.” The duo has hosted artists of various genres in their studio, and plan to keep diversifying their production portfolio.
