Automatic is Izzy Glaudini (synth, vocals), Lola Dompé (drums, vocals) and Halle Saxon Gaines (bass). Their music rides the imaginary edge where the ‘70s underground met the corporate culture of the ‘80s; or, as the band puts it, “That fleeting moment when what was once cool quickly turned and became mainstream all for the sake of consumerism.” The band first met while immersed in L.A.’s DIY music scene and started jamming together in 2017. Once they started playing shows, word quickly spread about their explosive live shows and they became a mainstay on the L.A. club circuit. After their debut album Signal was released on Stones Throw Records in 2019, they began touring internationally and have not looked back. Their follow up LP “Excess” was released in 2022 and since then they have supported: Bauhaus, Tame Impala, Parquet Courts, and toured all over the world including Australia, EU / UK , etc.
