Plenty of significant others have made beautiful indie pop together, like Tennis, Mates of State, and Matt and Kim. None of them have a story quite like LA-duo TeamMate.
Drummer Dani Buncher and singer/keyboardist Scott Simons met at WVU and dated 9 years before their romantic relationship came to a close. Discussions on future plans lead to Dani coming out of the closet and a break-up that probably could have been more painful that the press release sounds. The pair remained close despite living in separate places and music helped provide a platonic path of friendship. As Simons proclaimed “If we couldn’t be partners, we were still going to be teammates.”
Fast forward to Dani’s move to L.A. and an EP later, TeamMate is a budding indie pop band with a few solid singles under their belt. The duo’s latest effort “Until You Find Me” brims with bursts of optimistic synth, sunny harmonies and an anthemic hook that matches the band’s perseverance in friendship.
Stream “Until You Find Me” and head to Soundcloud for more TeamMate tracks.
