People the kangaroo is an Indie Rock band formed in 2013 by vocalist and keyboardist Alan Wurman (Chile), drummer Donnie Hogue (USA), guitarist Matias Rengel (Argentina) and bassist Gervais Maillard (France) while attending Berklee in Boston.
The band is influenced by indie/pop bands like “Walk the Moon”, “Grimes” and “Mika” and bands with a stronger rock sound like “Queen”, “Incubus” or “MUSE”. The sound of People The Kangaroo is a balanced blend of modern Rock and Indie/electronic.
Their first single “We Can Still Say I Love You” debuted in June 2013 after the Boston Marathon Bombing. Inspired by that particular event, the song was released with a documentary video filmed and edited by the band in Boston between April 15th and May 10th, 2013. The video was successful due to the critical unifying message of the song.
