Who: A rock band with an alternative twist with a sound rooted in Blues, Psych

lyrics convey the internal struggles of the human condition, filling the listener with
a desire for connection and belonging.

Album: Great Escapes– the band’s fifth album
Info: “With the new record the band maintains there DIY ethics with writing, performing, engineering, mixing and mastering duties all handled by the band on their home turf
inside “Comstock Recording Studios.” The album sees the band build on their already
well-established sound while adding elements of dark blues and psychedelia. The lyrics
arrive like a timeless psychedelic chronicle of love, life and the oddities of existence.”
