Inspired by everything from 70s Punk to Desert Rock, Speed of Light, siblings aged 13 to 17 from Santa Monica, California, have rocked the SoCal area and beyond with their original sound, carving their own path with no apologies. With elder brother Cameron’s 70s-style guitar riffs, middle brother Tyler’s thundering drums, and youngest sister Riley’s banshee howl, it’s no surprise why they’re becoming local fixtures in the L.A. music scene. With three years of live shows under their belt, they’re finally dropping a crowd favorite, the official single and video for “Kill the Vibe.” The song was recorded and filmed LIVE in a recording studio with a riotous live audience just before COVID put a long pause to live shows. Engrossed in the vivacious energy of playing hard-hitting garage rock with one foot in punk, it’s clear why Speed of Light is one of the reasons why you attend a show in Los Angeles.
In addition to being the house band for Echo Park’s popular “Bands In A Barbershop,” they’ve had a monthly residency at The Redwood Bar in downtown Los Angeles since 2018, and have played at Nevada’s Alienstock festival outside of Area 51, as well as performed for the Wonderama TV show in New York City. Having just recently performed at the famous Echo Park Rising 2020 virtual music festival, this band is ready to tackle anything else in their way!
They just recently dropped a video for there newest song, “Kill the Vibe” and it has a ton of energy and an immense amount of talent shown in the video. The song was recorded live, with no over-dubs, no re-takes, no double-tracking, nothing at all, and it’s a great taste of that great live music that we miss. Check it out below.

Aria Velz is a director, TikToker, and Lesbian Media Enthusiast based in the D.C. area. On November 2nd, she sat down with me to talk about it all, from her latest production at Olney Theatre Center to the things that lead to her little corner on TikTok.
On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
