*repeat repeat (east nashville, tn)
making whimsical surf-pop may seem like a daunting task when you live states away from the nearest beach, but guitarist and vocalist jared corder was determined to make the music reminiscent of his california birthplace. the band was always intended to be a 3-piece: jared on guitar and vocals, andy herrin on drums, with female harmony vocals reminiscent of 1960s west coast beach pop.
while working on new sounds, it was suggested by producer, gregory lattimer [albert hammond jr, kink ador, the gills, the grayces] that corder’s wife, kristyn, sing in the band.
the trio once described by the nashville scene as (“dick dale’s snot-nosed grandkids”) tracked a single and two additional tracks with lattimer in a basement of their hometown of east nashville in late 2012. the band’s first single “12345678” was released in march 2013.
“history”, was released in september 2013, and “chemical reaction” was released feb 1, 2014, and preceded the band’s first full-length album, “bad latitude”, released in march 2014. another song from the album, “not the one” went into heavy rotation on nashville’s beloved lightning 100 (100.1FM).
*repeat repeat’s debut album “bad latitude” is available on on all major digital retailers (itunes, bandcamp, and repeatx2.storenvy.com/

“…far and away one of the finest pop and rock bands currently in nashville. so many bands think that they must be either cool or fun, and never the two shall meet… *repeat repeat says fuck that, mashes them together, and throws 60’s tie-die vibes all over it. and glitter. to paraphrase jason lee’s character in the eternally great movie almost famous, if you’re not getting off, *repeat repeat will find you and get you off!…” – shop sessions @ dcxv industries
