Bone Island

Bone Island

 Hyattsville, Maryland, USA

Leisurely lyrics, gravelly guitars, burly bass, dastardly drums, kinky keyboard. Influenced by folk, indie, electronic, pop, punk, and old school hip-hop. Sounds like Death Cab/The Killers. All of the songs are filled to with feelings and life, and paint a picture across a wide spectrum of emotions.


Five musically inclined friends from the Washington D.C. area who decided to make some sweet sounds on guitars, drums, bass, and keyboards...and some other instruments, too.

Influences include Velvet Underground, NMH, Gustav Holst, Dinosaur Jr., Nirvana, The Decemberists, Iron and Wine, Death Cab for Cutie, Sigur Ros, The Beach Boys, The Starting Line, Forever the Sickest Kids, and Old school Hip-Hop.

We've been compared to Death Cab for Cutie in terms of our sound, but the ultimate goal is to create our own sound, somewhere in the middle of electronic, funk, and indie pop.


We have a self made EP on the way. We have a few songs recorded, and many more to record.
