Knitting Factory Presents
The Knitts, Lovechild, Atlas Engine
Lovechild is a rock & roll band from New York City, consisting of frontman and songwriter, Leo Liebeskind, lead guitarist Aaron Mones, bassist and producer Wyatt Mones, and drummer Daryl Cozzi. The band has a wide range of sounds, with acoustic picking and country-tinged slide guitar licks morphing into overdriven, psychedelic jams, and slow, soulful ballads into uptempo rockers. Lovechild relies on Liebeskind's poignant and poetic lyricism and rich, nuanced vocal delivery, combined with Mones' virtuosic and tasteful lead and slide guitar playing to get their songs across. The band has been developing, changing lineups, and hitting the stage at countless venues around the New York area, while working on recordings for its first proper release.
Atlas Engine is an indie rock band formed by Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Nick LaFalce in early 2016.
“I've tried collaborating in a group environment enough to know that this time, things had to be different,” says LaFalce, who wrote, performed, and produced the debut EP 'After the End' all on his own. “There was too much I wanted to do that couldn’t afford to be compromised, so I had to trust and rely on myself to make it happen.”
Incorporating the intricate layers and harmonies of Local Natives with Tame Impala-inspired falsettos and soaring melodies reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Atlas Engine bends and blends genres into its own distinctive mix of indie-rock and dream-pop. Released in July, 'After the End' has been featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds: Six Strings playlist, the Deli's Emerging Artists list, and KX93.5's King of the Beach competition. LaFalce has recruited the EP's producer and engineer Justin Mayfield along with Mike Tarnofsky, Patrick Cochrane, and Ryan Kaplan to help bring it to life throughout Brooklyn and beyond.
