Fictional Products of Fantastic Minds EP (2011)



The four of us began playing together during our sophomore year at St. Lawrence University. We're consummate music lovers, and have probably thousands of influences. Naming them all is an exercise in futility, and besides, it doesn't matter. Our influences will naturally appear in our songwriting, so we try not to worry about it. Overall, we want to be ourselves, and allow our individual and collective personalities determine our music. Music is communication and expression after all, and it's important to have your own voice.

On a freakier note, I personally believe that there exists an extra-dimensional space beyond our senses in which music and art live, fully formed and untapped. As artists, our job is to reach into the void and extract these ideas and bring them into the world. But hopefully only the good ones.

Currently, we only have five halfway decent recordings, which we did ourselves using equipment (some of it outdated) provided by St. Lawrence University (thanks Terry Dubray!). But we are constantly writing and rehearsing, and have well over an album's worth of material.
