Debut Single from Fascinations Grand Chorus


A while back, Stephanie Cupo's Souvenir Stand made a stop at Asbury Lanes to play a show with our good friends in Dentist. Her songs were rooted in the pristine pop of Brian Wilson and 60s girl groups. Now, Cupo has joined with drummer Andrew Pierce (formerly of Chalk and Numbers) for a new project called Fascinations Grand Chorus.

Styling themselves as a "band of competition," Stephanie and Andrew joined together to "write against each other" and to push each other's boundaries as songwriters. The result of their first competition is "Welcome." The song retains the retro sensibility of Cupo's work as Souvenir Stand; but, this time around, things are more lo-fi with Cupo's vocals and keys being carried along by Pierce's rolling drums.

Check out "Welcome" below, the first track from the duo's forthcoming, self-titled EP.
