If you aren’t already familiar with the 4 piece band Mainland, here’s a quick primer: Jordan Topf, Corey Mullee, Alex Pitta and Dylan Longstreet have been making a splash on the New York rock scene, releasing two well received EPs, before taking a little break from touring to get signed to a major label and record their first full length album (in Los Angeles). To celebrate the release of their upcoming single, which I am told will be out in about two weeks, Mainland played an intimate set at a pop-up space located in the historic Chelsea Hotel. The scene looked like something out of an Andy Warhol film as the space was half art gallery, half living room and a whole lot of fun. Their 45 minute set included a rockin’ cover of Velvet Underground’s “I Found a Reason,” and the video which you are about to see, the infectious party rock anthem “Leave The Lights On.” Discover all you need to know about Mainland on their official site (link will open in a new window).
Now get ready to party… just by pressing play.
