We’re grateful to be a part of the DMV music scene, as it is a very fostering community for new bands to get a start. With the close proximity of major cities, a number of venues willing to take a chance on local acts, and the plethora of talented artists to collaborate with, we have found a very supportive environment for our band to grow over these first couple years.
Sunbathers is an indie rock band that formed in the H Street neighborhood of Washington, D.C. during the Fall of 2013. The band consists of 5 members: Sean Lynott [vocals / synth], Peter Mindnich [guitar / vocals], Tim Boate [guitar], Peter Leonard [bass], & Shohsei Oda [drums]. Drawing from influences such as My Morning Jacket, Radiohead, and Phoenix, Sunbathers channel the sounds of alternative rock, indie, R&B, dance, and electronica. Over the past two years, the band has played a number shows along the east coast of the United States, including notable venues such as Black Cat, Rock & Roll Hotel, Baltimore Soundstage, The 8×10, Ottobar, Metro Gallery, WTMD radio station and others.
