Indie art rock band Repeater release new single ‘Captive’

By on November 6, 2014

repeaterLos Angeles based indie art rock band Repeater have released their new single “Captive.” The folk song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming self-titled full-length release, due out November 18th on A Diamond Heart Production. The track can be streamed on and Repeater’s Soundcloud.
“‘Captive’ is a condensed folk ballad – more of a pop song by virtue of brevity,” vocalist Steve Krolikowski explained. “In some foggy historical setting, existential crisis takes on a very dramatic tone. I have conquered so many demons, but perhaps they were the ones protecting me. Things are still just as hard as ever. The world hurts and so do we, the servants of love and loathing. But the message is to carry on, not despite, but because of adversity. Humility is a good traveling companion, and can take guilt’s place at your side.”

Repeater is an evolving band and project formed in 2005 by main writer Steve Krolikowski. From the remains of darkwave band The Main Frame, Repeater began as a foray into the sweeter indie and post-punk sounds of The Cure, Chameleons, Mew, and even Bowie, with elements of the mainstream. Through the course of several lineup changes, 3 EPs and 3 albums, they have created sounds evocative of Brit-rock, Gothic, post-hardcore, and most lately, layered pop music with an emphasis on craft.


The product of renewal and perseverance after a band breakup and many months in the studio with Christopher Fudurich, Repeater (self titled) is a collection of pop-oriented songs with an emphasis on rhythm, synth, and the dual vocals of Steve Krolikowski and Tess Shapiro. The band will be releasing their full-length self-titled album on November 18th. Fans can pre-order the 10-track album on iTunes for a discount price of $3.99 and instantly receive the track “Hide the Sun.”


“Repeater’s last full-length release was heavy darkness with a pinhole of light,” vocalist Steve Krolikowski explained. “Now the shutters are wide open.”
