The Octopus Project has been creating indielectronica music for 13 years. Using a mix of drums, synthesizers and vocals, this group creates a truly unique sound in each of their recordings. The band, native to Austin, TX, will be performing several shows at SXSW this year. They’re known for their live performances, so be sure to check out one of their shows if you’re headed to SXSW!

Recently, the group also composed the soundtrack for the indie film Kumiko the Treasure Hunter, and they won the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Musical Score at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for the score. The official soundtrack for the film will be released on March 10th, but you can check out six songs from the soundtrack on their SoundCloud below! The film is also set to be released later this month.
The Octopus Project loves connecting with their fans in cool new ways, and we’re so excited that FanBridge helps them to do so. We can’t wait to see what kind of projects they take on next, and we know their fans will be right beside them!
