It's cute that Darren laughs at pretty much everything Chuck says.

I saw some pictures of her in silly costumes, so I think she's an extra in it like some of her friends and Darren's friends. Or maybe she dressed up for fun, or did both. :happy face

Thanks for the explanation of what Chuck said, Lin!  I'm a little under the weather, and my ears are congested (plus I have a fuzzy brain that comes with a cold ), but even if I did hear what Chuck said, I wouldn't have understood the rap context, so thank you for explaining!

Lin wrote:It's cute that Darren laughs at pretty much everything Chuck says.

It's very endearing.  It's a joy to watch how much fun they have together in each other's company. And I also thought it was sweet how supportive Darren showed he is of Chuck in this particular interview.   Also-I liked how Darren described his relationship with Mia in this interview--very cute!--as well as what he said about celebrity crushes.  He definitely values smart, ambitious, funny women.  :happy face

I thought Darren did very well in this interview.  Fun and interesting interview. 


Lin, thanks for the answer about Mia.  I saw those pics of her in that cute costume, was wondering if she is directing the video as well since she has experience in that (it would make sense to me).   Can't wait to see the music video of Every Single Night!

A very complimentary article from BroadwayWorld.com about Computer Games, which also reports on Computer Games' first Los Angeles concert!  :happy face

Darren Criss's Band Computer Games to Play First L.A. Show This June

April 26, 2017



Indie alt-pop band Computer Games, comprised of frontman Darren Criss and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Chuck Criss, have announced their first ever Los Angeles show taking place on June 4th at the Teragram Ballroom.

In addition to playing songs from their debut album Lost Boys Life EP, Darren will be performing a solo set.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 3rd at 10am/PT and are available at here.

Last month the group released their debut album entitled Lost Boys Life EP, which received astonishing praise and garnered media attention. The 4-song EP's lead track "Every Single Night" was deemed an early contender as a song of the summer by Billboard. Entertainment Weekly labeled their sound as "a funky blast to the past in the spirit of some of the grooviest '80s superstar," while Teen Vogue described the album as "an indie gem filled with plenty of '80s pop inspiration and a dash of true DIY sensibility."

As high school kids, Darren Criss and his older brother Chuck spent nearly every afternoon playing music in their basement for hours upon hours. With Chuck on guitar and Darren on drums, the San Francisco natives tapped into everything from British power-pop to Bay Area punk to create their own rowdy breed of garage rock. Though they'd always planned on forming a bona-fide band together, each ended up striking out on his own path: Darren embarked on a singing/acting career that's included the creation of YouTube sensation StarKid, starring on Glee and in the forthcoming third installment of American Crime Story, and a string of successes on the Broadway stage. Meanwhile, Chuck joined acclaimed indie-rock act Freelance Whales, with whom he recorded and toured with as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter for several years. But in 2016, the two finally decided it was the right time to revisit their teenage ambitions and launch a guitar-fueled alt-pop band that they've named Computer Games.

With its blazing guitar solos and boundless energy, Computer Games' Lost Boys Life EP perfectly captures the spirit of adolescent abandon. At the same time, Computer Games show a sharp sense of songcraft born from years of refining their musical vision.

Darren and Chuck share songwriting duties for Computer Games, drawing on their indie sensibilities to build the ideal backdrop for their often-introspective lyrics. In the making of Lost Boys Life, Computer Games went for a chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter effect by enlisting the pop expertise of New York City-based music production team THE ELEV3N. Known for their work with artists like Meghan Trainor and Bebe Rhexa, the Criss brothers hoped THE ELEV3N's production sensibility would add a more contemporary, familiar sound to their initial left-of-center tracks. The result was just that: a shiny sheen polish on scrappy garage pop. And for the mixing of Lost Boys Life-an EP that gracefully blends raw live performance with electronic elements-the band looked to their long-time hero, producer & mixer Tony Hoffer, who's responsible for a number of albums that shaped the Criss brothers' musical background: Phoenix's Alphabetical, The Thrills' So Much For The City, and Beck's Midnite Vultures, to name a few.

Computer Games' Lost Boys Life EP is available now on Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music.

Watch the lyric video of "Every Single Night" below!

Artist of the Week: Computer Games

04-21-17

Brothers Darren Criss + Chuck Criss are the duo behind the all-new alt-pop band, Computer Games, and they’ve just dropped their first EP — Lost Boys Life!

Combining signature sounds of the 80s, with their evident flair for contemporary pop melodies and production, the four-song EP is being released independently by the group.

“Chuck and I grew up playing computer games. We weren’t allowed to play video games, so for some reason, computer games were a loophole,” Darren told EW about the band’s name. “Plus, I like the way that it sounds because it’s sort of an all-prevailing concept.”

Computer Games recently stopped by our studios to perform an intimate, acoustic set. Check out the stirring rendition of their song “Lost Boys Life” from the performance, below:



And after that, check out the rest of Computer Games' new music on iHeartRadio and listen to your favorites on repeat, all on demand! ​​​​​​​​​
