South of France is an indie-pop band based out of Denver that was initially started by multi- instrumentalist/ producer Jeff Cormack in 2012. Inspired by his love for retro guitar-pop, it began as a spare-time, lo-fi, garage rock project until Jeff met singer/ songwriter Kelly Lueke (who is now Kelly Cormack) in Los Angeles. They quickly realized that they had astonishingly similar taste in music and decided to join forces to create dynamic, dreamy, dance-able, melody and guitar-driven indie-pop that is centered around their intertwining male and female vocal parts and lush layers of catchy, reverb- soaked harmonies.
Their independently released, debut gull-length album “Another Boring Sunrise” was featured on several major music blog’s “Most Anticipated Albums of 2012” lists, and was released on Sept. 18th 2012. This album landed them print features in Under The Radar magazine, Filter Magazine, Band of the Day, and had earned excellent reviews from as direct support for major acts including, The Flaming Lips, Portugal. The Man, Two Door Cinema Club, Jimmy Eat World, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, and many more. They have also played official showcases at multiple major festivals including: CMJ, NXNE, POP Montreal, Northside Festival, Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide, UMS, and several others.
