NYC-based Philadelphia-bred indie electronic artist Instupendo floats into earshot with original compositions that listeners turn to when they feel, or want to feel, a certain way. Simultaneously euphoric and melancholy, this distinctive emotional sound design has earned Instupendo a world-wide following; the admiration of fellow artists, including notable collaborators such as Grammy-winners RAC and Rostam as well as indie friends like Benny Sings, Lontalius, Roy Blair, and Teen Daze; nods from The FADER, Pigeons & Planes, Pitchfork, Indie Shuffle, High Snobiety, and The 405; spotlights on SiriusXM and BBC6, and as regular features on Spotify, Apple Music, TIDAL, and Majestic Casual.
