L.A born and bred, Ballerina Black is the moniker for the music of Bobby Moynahan (Guitar & Vocals), with co-founder Esli Sugich (Bass & Guitar), Scott Eton (Keyboards & Guitar) and Romeo Mendoza (Drums).
This is the cheeriest melancholy to ever have mooped my existence. Described as mope rock, grave-wave, gloom-pop; whatever the genre blend, they’re pretty damn easy on the earholes.

The bands most recent EP – Injureless: Svart – came out in September 2013. It’s a self release and gives a great taster of what Ballerina Black are all about. This talented mope-rock foursome have already supported the likes of Interpol and Silversun Pickups. They’ll be touring the UK in the coming months. Catch em if you can.
