ANIMA! are a alternative electronic duo formed of the best parts of Arielle Vakni and Vicente Espi who originate from California and South Africa. Their enchantingly iconic vocal and unique cerebral beat boutique has fast become a favorite alternative indie electronic alongside their inspirations like Sylvan Esso and Little Dragon who first inspired their formation.

Named after ‘anima’, meaning the breath of life in each of us, ANIMA!’s songs like ‘Moving Mountains’ and ‘Blood’ hold a uplifting universality with an unconventional twist. Their differences in background and musical upbringing craft an evocative colorful sound world that “you will have never heard before.” - Hilly Dilly.

Unexpected to them, their first release ‘Breathe’ was a viral hit and the start to millions of streams that they’ve received for their releases ANIMA! (2016), Be Here Now (2015) and Art:Work (2017). An entirely self-produced and self-released under their own imprint, ANIMA! feature on Spotify’s Global Viral 50, New Music Friday, Mint, New Indie Mix, Fresh Finds playlists, to Apple Best of Alternative, iTunes top 10 Alternative and tastemaker platforms Indie Shuffle and Red Bull.

Catch them this MAY 2018 for their first US tour which ends on DoLab’s mainstage at Lighting In A Bottle!
MONOGEM is the moniker under which singer/songwriter Jen Hirsh blends her own new wave of sultry with ethereal alt-pop. In the cosmos, a monogem ring is a supernova remnant, the leftover glow from an exploded star. One of the largest monogem rings in the universe is located near the Gemini and Cancer constellations. Born in late June, Jen is on the cusp of Gemini-Cancer, and thus, Monogem rang true and stuck.
In 2017, MONOGEM dropped her highly anticipated sophomore EP, “100%”, which garnered love and attention from The Fader, MiLK, LADYGUNN, WONDERLAND, and Earmilk. Her music video for single “Wild” was featured internationally on Daily Mail UK, E!, Good Morning America and more.
MMOONNOOGGEEM’s latest single, “Get You High” was released in March 2018. According to KCRW, this is her “best single to date”, where “she blends all the right amounts of sultry and sexy, charm and elegance, on a slick backdrop of pop to boot.”-Grimy Goods. A month later, she dropped an intoxicating and empowering visual for “Get You High”, exclusively premiered by LA Weekly. All eyes are on MONOGEM as she makes her next mmoovvee…
