The Hectors are from Los Angeles.
The Hectors write and perform songs about geeks ("Cold Star"), thugs ("Carol and Sanford"), slackers ("Proof of Sale") and dreamers ("I Drove All the Way from Bridgeport to Make it With You").
The Hectors self-produced and recorded their recently-released 5-song EP, “Sometimes They Collide”, then called upon veteran producer Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre) to mix, and masterful engineer Mark Chalecki (Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, Great Northern) to master.
The Hectors' "smart, edgy pop" has already been profiled by the LA Times
, and Bibabidi
gushed that the EP "is certainly worth checking out....a meticulous, grandiose infusion of shoe-gaze, power-pop, and something grittier." The EP is currently getting play on major radio stations KROQ, Indie 103.1 FM, KEXP, and the influential Little Radio, KXLU, and Kill Radio.
