PAPA was one of the great discoveries of this year's SX. This LA anthemic-indie/pop outfit surprised us with their energetic stage presence and perfectly constructed songs.
Darren Weiss and Daniel Present met at the tender age of 7. Music was always at the foreground of their relationship. Playing in several band both independently from each other and together, it wasn't until members Evan Weiss and Alex Fischel joined the band, that musical endeavor PAPA was formed.
They have been receiving an overwhelmingly positive response from their recent shows - picking up speed at CMJ and this year's SXSW.
Their lyrics: honest, guitar riffs: catchy, sound: infectious. Get to know these boys, and do it fast. They just finished up tour dates with Lord Huron and are currently in the midst of an extensive North American tour.
Their EP 'A Good Woman Is Hard To Find' is available for digital download.
