About The Band

The 21st Century is a seven-piece indie pop band based out of Berkeley, CA, that blends the chamber-pop orchestrations of Brian Wilson and The Zombies, the clever poetry of Leonard Cohen, the energy of The E Street Band, and the playful optimism of Belle & Sebastian. Frontman Bevan Herbekian’s distinctive melodies and off-beat lyrics lay atop intricate arrangements that feature a driving rhythm section, jangly guitars, warm four-part vocal harmonies, and a dynamic horn section, resulting in a sound that is unique, yet instantly familiar, and impressive in both concert and recordings.

The Human Persons are currently petitioning for new members. Applicants should submit their resume along with a brief bio to our HR department at resumes@clubofhumanbeings.com.
