Hypoluxo is a band on the move.
Born on the mean streets of Lake Worth and currently based in New York, the young indie rockers have already completed two excellent EPs -- It's A Beautiful Day To Live and Feelings -- that they will promote with an East Coast tour beginning February 2 at Radio-Active Records in Fort Lauderdale.
Samuel Cogen, the band's singer and guitarist, explained Hypoluxo's origins to New Times. "I was playing bass with a few other local bands (Novajoven and Paleo Eskimo). I started playing guitar on the side. Never performing in public or in a band. But I wanted to develop the songs."
Conveniently, he ran into an old drummer pal Marco Ocampo on a sojourn to Tennessee for Bonnaroo, where they quickly bonded and decided to make music together. Inconveniently, Ocampo was moving to New York.
