Wardell is the latest act...
The website of Jay Z's Roc Nation has signed Wardell, the duo of Steven Spielberg's kids Sasha and Theo Spielberg. The two released their EP Brother/Sister on June 3 through National Anthem. They will release their debut album in 2014 through the new label. Artists on the Roc Nation include Kylie, Rihanna, Meek Mill, Wale, and Timbaland.
The blurb on the website reads: "Sasha and Theo are brother and sister. That familiarity and fondness informs the music that they make together, which is at once warm and summery, comfortable and chill as a result of their Los Angeles upbringing. It's the kind of music you'd expect from two people who grew up sharing a wall, infused with that particular intimacy that comes with a life spent knowing each other. And while they draw from a wide range of influences, they have managed to create a sound that is wholly their own. Having released the single "Opossum" to great acclaim, including a feature on NPR as Song of the Day, Wardell is hard at work on their debut album, which will come out in 2014."
