High-energy, scrappy indie-pop quintet, PK, have released their sophomore project, The Lost Boy Sessions, today. Sonically described as "The Killers meet Vampire Weekend," PK has been compared to such acts as The Cure, U2 and The Gaslight Anthem. After the band's debut full-length, Into The Roaring, garnered attention from Rolling Stone, Nylon Guys, Alternative Press and Pac Sun Music, PK's highly anticipated second release, The Lost Boy Sessions is destined to be at the top of everyone's summer playlist. The band is currently touring the West coast in support of the EP's release. Purchase The Lost Boy Sessions on iTunes.
Hailing from San Luis Obispo, California, PK is made up of Travis Hawley (Vocals), Matt DePauw (Guitar), Mikel Van Kranenburg (Bass), Nick Fotinakes (Guitar) and Rico Rodriguez (Drums). While the members initially met in high school, vocalist Hawley was born in the United Arab Emirates and lived in England for five years before moving to the U.S. His brief stint in the UK deeply affected his vocal style and he has often been compared with emotive British artists such as Robert Smith, Bono, and Danny Elfman.
After releasing their first full length Into the Roaring, PK was immediately hand selected and published by Rolling Stone Magazine as 1 of 16 top unsigned artists in the United States. In the past year, the band has opened for such acts as Angels and Airwaves, Twin Atlantic, Aerosmith, Shiny Toy Guns and Youngblood Hawk. PK recorded their new EP 'The Lost Boys Sessions' at the famed Red Bull Studio in Los Angeles. Check out PK's cover of the Magnetic Fields' "I Think I Need A New Heart" on Relix.com.
