I accidentally found this band when I noticed Sam Earle (from Degrassi) twitted about having a romance with his math and had to listen to COLD GIRL DUST(via tumblr). I've been hooked, ever since.
Hey Champ comes out of Rockford which is close to Chicago. They are made up of Saam Hagshenas (Vocals, Guitar), Jonathan Marks (Drums)and Pete Dougherty (Synths). Who would have thunk it? These guys could have been lawyers.
"Their music incorporates influences from disco, house and indie rock to the power-pop of Rockford’s hometown heroes Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn. Their infectious sound has garnered fans and made them blog and radio darlings from Portland to Paris to Porto Alegre." says last.fm.
Back in May they released the EP, Anything At All.
SPIN magazine is naming them “Best Discovery of Lollapalooza”
