This Is Boston In LA: Watch Bearstronaut perform on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

For the past several years, Bearstronaut have perfected tropical sunshine pop within the cold, rigid confines of New England. Last night (August 17), the quartet — who inspired the launch of Vanya Records back in 2011 with their single “Moniker” and won Best Electronic Artist at last year’s Boston Music Awards — made their national television debut, showing Los Angeles and the rest of the country how they do with a spirited performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.


After actress Salma Hayek and comedian Jay Ellis did their thing on Kimmel’s couch, Bearstronaut performed two tracks as part of the Mercedes-Benz Concert Series, both off their recent debut LP Telecoast. The first, “Shadow,” was included in the TV broadcast, and the second, “Gold,” is available for online audiences.

Watch both performances below.

Catch Bearstronaut live at the Middle East in Cambridge on September 23, playing the Central Square joint with Party Bois and Animal Talk.
