With the release of their debut album “Busy Chillin”, Half Hour Late takes the best parts of several vibrant styles and builds a sound all their own. Laced with addictive melodies, a bright presence, and plenty of character, the record boasts the aesthetic of acoustic-pop anthems.
The first single "Bait" is a tasteful and infectious song built with pop tones that let the song shine with trumpets, danceable grooves, and a smooth tone.
Half Hour Late is made up of a group of friends out of Ocean Beach, San Diego.
The band played their debut concert at The Holding Company in September 2021, and they have been on the grind ever since ; headlining, selling out San Diego venues, releasing an album, and touring on both coasts for their first time on the road.
“We’re after it and know exactly where we’re going. It’s pretty awesome to see everything we were able to accomplish independently in our first year; and we cannot wait to see what’s down the road!!”
“Your girlfriend’s favorite band” brings out the best in people, and the band’s concerts represent exhaustively what they’re all about: FUN.
Half Hour Late creates an instant connection with the crowd and their grooves are undeniable; they make people dance and move with so much ease.
“Performing is the apogee for us. The energy exchange is so powerful and we have insane amounts of fun playing live. It’s amazing that people started following us and coming to shows religiously, so early on! We are very blessed to feel so deeply supported and appreciated.”
The creativity and originality they bring into every aspect of their art is admirable. Nothing can be simple/stupid with these guys… a videoclip quest quickly turns into a rock-climbing mission, and a photoshoot might as well involve some paragliding.
Be on the lookout for Half Hour Late!
Another album and Tour coming up in 2023….
