For fans of:The Beach Boys, Vampire Weekend, Stars, Paul Simon, Foster the People

We're Fialta, a dual-couple indie pop band from California. And we're so glad you found us here on Noisetrade.

As four individual songwriters, vocalists, and multi-instrumentalists, we started Fialta as a way to support each other in arranging and recording our musical ideas. We are deeply passionate about the creative process and can attest to how formative it has been for our marriages and friendships (yup, we're two married couples)! In 2013, we released our debut album, Summer Winter, and this July we've just released our second album, Shadow of a Drought—an energetic, earnest pop record - our own little opus about life in the 21st Century. Our influences range from Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys to Paul Simon to early Madonna.

We've been so fortunate to remain independent and grow rather organically. We just completed a sold-out West Coast tour, and charted #10 on Bilboard's Heatseeker charts for Up & Coming Artists. But don't just take our word for it. Here are a few things that others have said about us:

  • "Best Pop Song Summer 2016"Paste Magazine
  • "Synth-soaked pop reflections on life"Stereogum
  • "Damn catchy electro-pop"SF Weekly
  • "A balanced sound that evokes the New Pornographers"Nerdist
