“Music has always been the constant in my life,” says Layne Putnam. “It’s always been there for me, and it always will be. It’s always been my purpose and reason and the one thing that no one could ever take away from me. Growing up until now, it’s been my power, my identity, and my best friend.” As with any genuine artist, age begets change, and for Putnam that meant a life transforming, cross-country relocation to her new and current home in Los Angeles. There, through a casual encounter in a coffee shop, Putnam would meet drummer Alexander Rosca, a transplant session player from Portland, OR. They would bond over similar tastes in music, style, and similarities in the places they once called home. It’s in the City of Angels where these messengers of music found and perfected their crafty and heartfelt take of indie pop powered by moody, emotion-laden rock.
