Rising indie trio Early Morning Rebel is proudly L.A. through and through--so it's no surprise that their introspective, melodic sound boasts a serious cinematic influence. Members describe their sound as "indie pop noir," full of bittersweet mood-setting that's made the group a shoo-in for soundtrack spots on TV favorites like "Grey's Anatomy."

It's the song that landed, "Lifeboat," that's become a fan favorite, and that the group played in a special intimate set for Fusion in L.A., the city where "dreams happen," says member Joshua Mervin. "This is the place to come. If you have a dream, you've got to come here. It's that simple." For Early Morning Rebel, that dream might be coming true. Check them out in the video above.
