Hyper Crush is a band from Los Angeles, California. It consists of a rapper, Donny Fontaine, a vocalist, Holly Valentine, and a DJ/keytarist, Preston Moronie. Fontaine and Moronie originally formed the Bel-Airs, but changed the name, along with their style. When they sought a female vocalist to go along with Fontaine, their long-time friend Valentine took the job. The group first gained widespread exposure through their MySpace page and soon began playing shows in Los Angeles and other places in and around California. Both musically and in their appearance, Hyper Crush makes copious references to the decades of the 1950s and 1980s. For example, they have made references to Nintendo, Technicolor, Hypercolor clothing, and Genesis. They even used sounds from Nintendo’s Duck Hunt game to begin the song “The Arcade” and music from The Legend of Zelda to end it. Their debut album, The Arcade, was released on May 1,, featuring 13 songs, 2 of which had been previously released on their mixtape.
