Transviolet is an LA-based quartet made up of vocalist/lyricist Sarah McTaggart, multi-instrumentalist/producer Michael Panek, drummer/producer Jonathan Garcia, and guitarist/keyboardist Judah McCarthy. The band’s first song, “Girls Your Age” popped online in the summer of 2015 announcing Transviolet’s arrival. “Girls Your Age” gained instant online traction with Sarah’s voice at once recalling the Lana, Lorde, Karen O and Imogen Heap: sultry, measured, assured. Katy Perry praised the lyrics, Harry Styles tweeted his support, Ellie Goulding selected it for a spin on Beats1 and Twin Shadow delivered an exclusive remix.
Transviolet has appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden (twice) and The Today Show. They have toured nationally with Mikky Ekko and LANY, and toured the UK with Twenty One Pilots. They’ve played the festival circuit including SXSW, Governor’s Ball, Firefly, Read and Leeds, Great Escape and more, generating over 20+ million spins on Spotify.
Meanwhile, they garnered widespread acclaim from i-D, Nylon, Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, Noisey, Billboard, and many more. In 2017, they released their softmore EP “Kaleidoscopes” paired with videos for “The Hamptons”, “Astronaut”, “Kaleidoscopes” and “Pretty Head”. In 2017, they performed on The Today Show and for MTV, Billboard and Baeble Music while quietly creating this latest body of work.
Known for their stupefyingly uncategorizable blend of pop, hip hop, alternative and dance music, Magic Bronson create a sound that is uniquely their own. Los Angeles natives Michael Nicastro and Matthew Lieberman deliver huge, stadium filling anthems that sweat with sonorous vocals and groove-laden bass, appealing to fans of Phantogram, Alt-J and The Gorillaz.
