There’s absolutely nothing un-chaotic about the Los Angeles-based duo, TeamMate. Comprised of Scott Simons and Dani Buncher, they started out as your basic college sweethearts – until Buncher came out to Simons. Now, normally when this happens people just awkwardly move on and away from each other, but the two decided to pour their heartbreak and tighten their bond by crafting explosive, Supernova-level synthpop where they take us into wide-eyed ruminations of the goods and bads. Their hit-worthy single, “Nothing’s Ever Over” is a mind-expanding dance that processes the pains of unexpected turns in a relationship and how both can make something greater out of it. Hit play:

Two days before their show at The Satellite (Silver Lake), TeamMate shared a post dedicated to Dani’s friend and former bandmate in Big Snow Big Thaw, David Meyer, who passed away back in September. They stated, “We’d like to dedicate our show in Los Angeles on October 14th to the memory of his life and his music.”
