Formed in early 2006 in San Francisco, California, One Becomes One Hundred is an independent, alternative pop/rock band.

The name implies exponential growth stemming from simplicity, a phrase that aptly describes a style of crescendo from soft lulls to choruses with sweeping energy and volume. A gestalt combination of layered guitars, melodic baselines, commanding vocals, and smart songwriting reclaims a sound once thought to be forever lost in the pop underground.

Inspired by Interpol, My Bloody Valentine, The Smiths, Low, Editors and others, One Becomes One Hundred pulls from many influences while maintaining originality.

One Becomes One Hundred consists of John McCoy (vocals/guitar), Brett Arnott (bass), J. Miladin (guitar), and Aaron Hazen (drums).
