sponj is two people and a drum machine. Formed in Chicago in the winter of 2023 by long-time friends, the band is made of a material-driven designer by trade, building beats that make us move, paired with the poetic vocals of a multimedia artist. Using minimalist, potent synths and drums, and driven to compose textured compositions that don’t need to change to stay interesting, the songs combine disciplined restraint with deep emotiveness. The vocals are a collage of keen reflections and eavesdroppings gathered from experience, which tell stories of relative truth, humor, and all kinds of love. The instrumentals and lyrics contain a futurism that is also nostalgic. sponj cites influences from many places and times, from 80’s Prog Rock and Pop, through 90’s Hip-Hop, to 00’s Ambient and Post-Wave. There is a connection to the past and unique present that makes sponj feel transportive yet familiar; sponj is an optimistic parallel universe for everyone. Epcot, a moody, cinematic, dancy, melodic, glo-fi dream-dive is their debut album, released February 3rd.
