Leading up to their forthcoming EP, Los Angeles-based quintet Leftover Cuties will delight fans and industry tastemakers in Austin at SxSW with their lush, seductive brand of modern noir pop. En route to Texas, the band will charm and captivate audiences at the Cosmopolitan Hotel with a string of nightly shows.
Leftover Cuties are currently putting the finishing touches on their covers EP due out late Spring, which will feature special arrangements of favorites like "You Are My Sunshine"; Lady Gaga's "Poker Face"; Regina Spektor's "Fidelity" and more. The release follows their critically acclaimed debut, Game Called Life EP. The EP boasts the breakout title track and theme song to the Showtime hit series The Big C (go here to check it out, and their album Places to Go.
With a nod to Gatsby-era debauchery and smoke-filled jazz joints, Leftover Cuties will steal your heart, and your significant other. Shirli McAllen's velvety vocals combine with Austin Nicholsen (ukulele), Stuart Johnson (drums), Mike Bolger (keys, horns, accordion) and Ryan Feves (bass) in a way that pays homage to the sophisticated, sultry sounds of yesteryear while embracing the tones of today.
