"It's A Big Week For Had I Known....."

In other news, local indie-rock trio Had I Known is closing out the year with the release of its second EP, Refraction, and will celebrate its launch with a show at Bar-K on Saturday, Dec. 8. Recorded with producer Schylar Woods at Wescott Pro Audio, Refraction features contributions by former members Jameson Becker and Daniel Snyder Jr., but the material will be brought to life onstage by new bassist Alex Ben-Kori and drummer Lucas Huffman, who now round out the lineup alongside guitarist/vocalist Brian Eastin.
“Each are amazing players that have brought their own style to each song,” says Eastin of his new bandmates, praising their subtle dynamics and contributions to the band’s versatile live sound. The trio is hoping to both tour and release a full LP in 2019.
Meanwhile, the three tracks on Refraction nicely showcase Had I Known’s atmospheric, sonorous take on math rock, achieving a particularly beguiling melodicism on “Painter’s Picture” and exploring moodier territory on the oblique instrumental “Sayonara.”
You can also catch Had I Known in Denver at the Seventh Circle Music Collective on Wednesday, Dec. 19, with Adventurer, Bloom, Paperback and Denver prog-math band Endless, Nameless. - Colorado Springs Independent


"Vase Vide and Had I Known to play dual release show."

Daniel Oglesby, frontman of local art-rock quintet Vase Vide, and Brian Eastin, frontman of indie-rock trio Had I Known, are sitting outside Poor Richard’s on a Wednesday evening, discussing an evergreen topic among aspiring musicians — how does one “crack the code” and get their music heard outside their local stomping grounds?
Both readily admit to being somewhat puzzled by the concept of “branding” when it comes to their music, even though it’s considered a key element to music industry success. The two would much rather just let their songs do the talking instead of attempting to manufacture an identity.
“I’m a bit baffled by it; it’s something I still don’t understand, even though it’s a big part of it these days.” says Oglesby, while Eastin nods in agreement. “But [Vase Vide] started writing songs for the sake of writing songs. We didn’t get together and say, ‘oh, let’s be a metal band’ or ‘let’s be an indie band.’ We got together with more the idea of ‘let’s write cool songs that we would like to hear.’”
The pair’s respective bands are set to debut new material with a dual release show at the Zodiac on Friday, Nov. 10, with Had I Known releasing an EP, Pedestrians, and Vase Vide unveiling a full LP, Hello, Moon. Good Night. The evening will also feature a performance by the trio Katey Sleeveless, who, incidentally, also have a new EP forthcoming, though a triple-release night wasn’t quite doable.
“That probably would be tough, asking people to buy three records,” laughs Eastin.
Aside from the kismet of convenient timing, Vase Vide and Had I Known chose to arrange a dual release show because the two bands have played together many times — including at Vase Vide’s very first show— and feel their respective sounds mesh well together.
“People at shows always say that,” says Oglesby, joking “finally, the perfect indie-rock lineup.”
Had I Known had been asking around about potential producers since early last spring. They found their working partner in Schylar Woods of Wescott Pro Audio, quickly recording their material over the course of four days.
“It was just a perfect situation,” says Eastin of working with Woods. “I recommend him to everyone out there!” - Colorado Springs Indepedent


"Had I Known Release New EP, "Refraction""

Colorado Springs indie rock band Had I Known recently celebrated the release of their moody and impactful three song EP, Refraction. At only three songs in length, the EP manages to showcase the band’s diverse range of sound, from the mellow opener “Painter’s Picture” to the more energetic and guitar-driven “Sayonara”. Listen to the EP in full now below.

2018 might be coming to an end, but Had I Known are just getting started, with shows in support Refraction quickly approaching. On Wednesday, December 19th, the band will be playing at 7th Circle Music Collective in Denver, with more plans to play in Denver and Colorado Springs coming up over the next few months.
