Setlist.Fm's weekly "Who Is" series is an immersive way to expose readers to up-and-coming indie acts that should be on your radar; written by music fans for music fans. Each week we feature an artist and/or band that's making waves in the music world. The "Who Is" pieces are a tell-all of the artist, showcasing everything from music and performance style, to influences and tour dates. This week we're bringing you into Bane's World.

Bane's World, the moniker of Long Beach-native Shane Blanchard, is for anyone who's infatuated with the redefined sounds of dreamy, psychedelic bedroom pop. At only 22, he spent 2018 frequenting huge music fests like Coachella and Camp Flog Gnaw, despite never having released a full-length album. His 9-track debut EP, aptly titled Drowsy, paved the way for his introduction to the indie and alt-pop world, coming in strong at over 40 million Spotify streams.

It's quite obvious that the dude's kind of obsessed with that trippy, retro '80s vibe – everything from his haircut to the way he dresses to his video content. In Bane's World's one and only official music video for "You Say I'm In Love," you can see the VHS aesthetic prominently coupled with heavy static lines to convey that vintage feel.

Having toured with Inner Wave, Michael Seyer, Sara King, and opened for Mac Demarco, you can expect that Bane's World will be giving us the scoop on the next era of emerging bedroom pop artists. Last year, he signed onto the same management and booking group (Panache) as Demarco, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Ty Segall.

To fall more in love with Bane's World, head to "Who Is Bane's World?" on Setlist.Fm.
