Hailing from Southern California, Transporting Planets is a shoegaze band consisting of Omar Akrouche, Eric Van Thyne and Gavin Baker. Self-described as “lively shoegaze,” the band initially took foot when Van Thyne recorded songs, that are on their first EP, and Akrouche and Baker joined when Van Thyne needed a live band. Since then, Van Thyne still records much of the instrumentals, however, Akrouche and Baker appear on various parts of the band’s album, especially on their recent self-titled record, Transporting Planets. The band plans to release an EP that includes b-sides from their previous EPs and albums. Transporting Planets encompasses an eclectic sound that dives listeners right into the world of shoegaze.
