Los Angeles’ Loch & Key was actually conceived in a French launderette, the South of France setting somehow matching the sunny vibes of their Southern California roots to a tee. Meanwhile, the pair that make up the group, former American Music Club member Sean Hoffman and artist Leyla Akdogan, trekked off to Catalonia in Span to pen the first tune for their new musical venture. What a picture perfect beginning for a dose of pure and summery AM pop flavors. The band’s debut album is called Jupiter’s Guide for Submariners and today you can sample the oh-so-whimsically titled ” A Rather Large, Television-Shaped Head” from the release.
