The Submarines are an indie-pop group comprised of married couple Jack Dragonetti and Blake Hazard. Touring with drummer Jason Stare and new bass player "Scott," they passed through Sacramento on Wednesday night, playing a small show at Blue Lamp.
If you don't recognize the band name, you would certainly recognize the music. Their songs have been featured in Nip/Tuck, Weeds, Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girl, and in maybe the most well-known placement, the songs "You, Me and the Bourgeoisie" and "Submarine Symphonika" were used in Apple commercials for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.
Originally working as solo artists in Boston, Dragonetti and Hazard played in each other's bands and were romantically involved for four years. The relationship ended, but because Hazard still recorded her music in Dragonetti's home studio, the pair quickly discovered the songs they were writing were about each other and their sadness in having broken up. They starting working together again and eventually married. They have released two full-length albums, Declare a New State! and Honeysuckle Weeks, and a third release is upcoming.
Fun fact: Hazard is the great-granddaughter of The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
