Feeling Tremors at the Cinema Bar

(Raul Hernandez of Ripe Whiskeey)

Local alternative rock outfit Tremors recently released their “Second Hand” single and they have an EP available. They’ll be performing all of that and more when they play the Cinema Bar on Tuesday. The band spoke to the News about what they have in store for Culver City…

When did you start playing and performing? 

The group was formed in 2018 by Manny, Tito, and Josh in Manny’s apartment. As soon as songs were written the band wanted to play out immediately and Juan was brought on to play drums for a few shows but was later moved to bass. Once Tony was invited to play drums in 2021 the band became what it is today. 

Describe your sound/style?

Our sound is a mixture of alternative rock/emo rock and a hint of RnB. We like to call our sound “Hawthorne emo” because our playing style is very dynamic and emotional from beginning to end. We try to make every show feel like an emotional relationship between two people.

What are your career highlights so far?

We’d like to say that playing the Whisky a Go Go twice would be a highlight in our career. The venue is absolutely iconic in L.A. and it’s certainly an honor to know that we were able to share the same stage as some legendary bands/performers. 

What recorded music is available — particularly the most recent?

Currently, we have an EP and a few singles totaling 11 songs, available on all streaming platforms. We recently released our latest single “Second Hand” in April which features the first time we have tried experimenting with a synth in our music. You can find that song and the rest of our catalog on ALL streaming platforms.

Have you performed at the Cinema Bar before?

No, we’re hoping to make our first set of memories there on the 16th. We’re hoping to bring something new to Cinema bar on May 16th.

What can the audience expect from the set this time?

As it’s our first time playing there, we’re hoping to draw a crowd that’s willing and accepting of the trip we’d like to take them on. But ideally we’d like to put on a great performance. We love playing live and can’t wait to play in front of a new crowd. 

What else do you have coming up?

Our goal is to be consistent. We have two new singles in the final stages of mixing and were looking to release those sometime during the summer. More show announcements to come as well so if you’d like to keep up with us you can find all this information on our website and Instagram.
