InTraffikRadio’s Interview w/ Celeste Kim of SPARKALIZE (and Producers Nathan Jenkins and Taylor Martyr)
Listen to the podcast of our interview (click here to listen) with Celeste Kim, whom you may also know from local L.A. Powerpop/Punk band Underwater City People, and her Producers Nathan Jenkins and Taylor Martyr (both of Action Go Now).
With a new EP that debuted January 15th, Kim is ready to make her mark in this new world of music that she has always been a fan of and she joined us in studio to discuss her shiny super-new project Sparkalize! Click here to listen!
Tracks by Lykke Li, Foster the People (“Pumped Up Kicks), Cloud Control ( “Ghost Story”), Ladyhawke (“Paris is Burning”), and The Bees (“Winter Rose”) were played during this episode as well as “Lucky Charm,” “Belong”, “Romance Not War,” and “Party Girl” (Title Track) all tracks from the Sparkalize Party Girl EP.
Here is a little more information on this new project:
“As a minor, getting into dance clubs and raves by way of fake id’s, tons of makeup, and stiletto heels helped her get her fix.”
Sparkalize is a new electro-pop project via singer/songwriter Celeste Kim. Emerging from the Kiss or Kill LA underground rock and roll scene with indie pop punk band Underwater City People, she returns to her first crush: dance music. As a minor, getting into dance clubs and raves by way of fake id’s, tons of makeup, and stilleto heels helped her get her fix. The intoxication of the bass on the floor and the floating synths has had her hooked ever since. Sparkalize is her love affair.
Celeste has toured as keyboardist and as a back up singer with major artists such as Savage Garden, Coolio, and Rebekah Del Rio performing on stages all over the world, as well as on the Tonight show.
Recently she sang and played bass with 3 piece indie punk/rock group Underwater City People which allowed her to tour the US, gain national exposure on prime time TV shows and win an award for ‘Best Pop Single’ at the LA Music Awards.
Now, longing to focus on her love of dance music, Celeste has teamed up with producers Nathan Jenkins and Taylor Martyr (Action Go Now) and Jonathan Paul (redCola, Obtain) to record her debut solo EP “Sparkalize.”
Listen Today (Monday 1/31) at 2:00 pm (PST) for the re-broadcast of our Interview with Portland, OR based band AgesandAges!
We’ve been fans of this band for a little while now (as well as frontman Tim Perry’s previous band Pseudosix) and are excited to have them stop in on the intraffikradio.com studios during their current West Coast Tour. They’re probably one of the only bands we’ve heard capable of pulling off such wonderful 5 (and at times 7) part harmonies without sounding like a church choir or a glee club throughout their well-crafted songs.
*Please note that this interview originally aired last Wednesday prior to their Spaceland/The Satellite show (w/ fellow Portland bands Typhoon and Brainstorm) so please ignore the constant mentions of that show as it has already occurred.

We discussed (among many other topics): their current tour, their show that was occurring that night with fellow Oregon based tour mates Typhoon and Brainstorm (presented by JaxArt at Spaceland/The Satellite ), their forthcoming debut album Alright, You Restless (available 2/18), recording the album in 8 days with producer Kevin Robinson (who you may know as one half of Viva Voce), the Portland music scene, their thoughts on Portlandia, What they did on their day off from touring, and much more.
They also braved our technical set-up and performed three live tracks on-air (on-web?) to give you a preview of their live shows and their forthcoming album. Those songs were:
“Under a Cloud Shaped Like a Tomb”
And believe us, they are even better in person. So, if you’re near somewhere that they might be playing definitely go catch them, we highly recommend it!
If you’re near Portland, their official CD Release Party occurs on Feb. 11th at Mississippi Studios w/ Billygoat and Arch Cape. If you’re not, then you’ll have a chance to catch them at SXSW, and also when they hit the road again this time for a month long tour in April with the band Lake.
Here is a live video performance for one of our favorite songs (“These Elbows”) off of Alright, You Restless:
