Cheekface is an indie rock trio, more precisely a talk-singing band, from Los Angeles. The story starts in 2017. Things were getting pretty crappy on Earth. Indie band lifers Greg and Mandy got together to write out the anxiety, despair and the bleak humor of it all. They sent the demos to Echo and, voila, a band. It wasn't a project that started with much ambition: the idea was to drop a record on Bandcamp and call it a day. But in 2018, the band's second single "Dry Heat/Nice Town," a playful pub rock tune about leftist protest culture, started to snowball online. A word-of-mouth cult started to form, and it intensified with Cheekface's community-minded singalong shows. Fans dubbed themselves "Cheek Freaks." The band chased their 2019 debut LP "Therapy Island" with 2021's "Emphatically No." It bowed as Bandcamp's top-selling alternative album, and the record's sticky singles "Listen To Your Heart. No." and "Best Life" lodged themselves in college radio rotation. In Rolling Stone, one writer remarked, "If not for Cheekface, I’m not sure I would have been able to enjoy anything at all this year." Seriously. Because good things supposedly come in threes, Cheekface returned with their 3rd LP "Too Much to Ask" in August 2022. Stereogum called it "one of the smartest, most infectious indie rock albums of the year." The Needle Drop raved, "I think Cheekface is killing it here. Handily one of the best rock records I've heard in 2022."
