Mixing the sunny swoon of sixties pop with a dark swirl of Warholian garage rock, *repeat repeat create their own geography, dreaming up
songs rooted in the spirit of both coasts. Based in Nashville, TN — where frontman Jared Corder, then-drummer Andy Herrin, and
keys/singer Kristyn Corder kicked off the band’s career with 2014’s Bad Latitude — the band looks beyond the borders of their landlocked
hometown and, instead, mix California surf culture and New York street smarts into the same tracklist. They’re a blend of bloom, doom,
and boom. They’re Dick Dale’s snot-nosed grandkids. They’re *repeat repeat.

 

A self-described family business, *repeat repeat was founded by Jared Corder — a former punk-rock kid raised on the sounds of Bad
Religion and Black Flag. The goal was simple: to make edgy, guitar-driven music that nodded to the classic sounds of Jared’s California
birthplace, complete with hazy harmonies and surf-inspired arrangements. The problem? The group needed a female harmony singer, and
nobody seemed to fit the bill.
Things changed when the band’s producer, Gregory Lattimer (Albert Hammond Jr.), suggested that Jared’s wife, Kristyn, sing with the
band. The fit was natural. Kristyn had grown up in California, listening to ’60s legends like the Mamas and the Papas and The Everly
Brothers. She quickly completed the band, sharing vocal duties with Jared and serving as the inspiration for much of Bad Latitude — a
debut album largely written by Jared during the couple’s engagement, filled with songs about love, life, and the promise of new
partnerships — along the way.

● “There’s something addictive about *repeat repeat. Maybe it’s the high-energy “Plugged In” that almost gives you a runner’s high just by
listening to it. Or maybe it’s the perfect concoction of surf, rock, and pop that make their tracks so sticky sweet and irresistible” –
Alternative Press / AP
● “*repeat repeat have perfected a unique combination of surf, pop, & rock on the new single (Girlfriend) …there is a lot of nostalgia to be
found.” – EARMILK
● “We can’t tell if this song is pop, surfer-cool certifies, or a mix of both, but it doesn’t really matter since we’ve been listening to it on
*repeat repeat.” – NYLON
● “It’s like if grunge had met pop and opposites attracted, creating a sound that’s loud yet laid back and a vibe that’s lively but also
melodramatic. The merging of punk with California surf culture stems the background of the band *repeat repeat, with members hailing
from both coasts, creating a perfect hybrid of surf rock that’s undeniably satisfying. – Substream Magazine
