Bay Ledges, the glitchy indie-pop group led by siblings Zach & Georgina Hurd, will release the new EP, FOUNTAIN TROPICAL, on Friday, 8/18, on S-Curve Records.
Bay Ledges self-released the song, "Safe," late last fall and it unexpectedly and rapidly hit three million streams on Spotify. It was at the urging of family and friends that principal band member Zach Hurd even released the song, so its success was most unexpected to him. Making no effort to promote it, within weeks, the track landed on Spotify's "Fresh Finds" playlist, then shot up the Global Viral chart. "At the time I was in Williamsburg, Virginia, helping to clear out my grandparents' old house," recalls Hurd, "Every day I'd wake up to something new. It was so surreal -like, 'This unbelievable thing is happening, and I'm alone in Colonial Williamsburg.'" The band currently reside in Los Angeles, however they are originally from Bath, ME, and the band take their name from a plot of land that the Hurds’ grandparents owned in Maine. In addition to the success at Spotify, the song was selected a "Today's Top Tune" at KCRW. The video for "Safe" recently premiered via Ones To Watch.
