Last Planet, a rising band from Oakland, CA, is serving up their unique take on alt-rock one song per month throughout the rest of 2023. Formed in 2018 by Cort Young and Albero Berul, two songwriting musicians who met while working at Guitar Center in San Francisco, Last Planet rapidly grew to a dynamic band of six, rocking Bay Area venues and releasing a debut EP, Petrichor.
The addition of Rai Ahmed-Green as lead female vocalist and co-songwriter brought a sultry infusion of Soul and R&B to Last Planet. Together they found their signature sound: soulful vocals over grittier rock. The band’s production utilizes raw and processed sounds in a way that captivates the listener and accentuates the song's emotion. Last Planet is excited to release their second in a series of 2023 singles, "Whiskey Breath," a song that captures their new sound.
With each release Last Planet’s audience has grown, recently passing 100k Spotify streams. Building on this momentum, Last Planet is slated to play a slew of well-known Northern California venues in the summer 2023 and continue to share their soulful yet gritty alt-rock sound.
