Biography

We are a high-energy rock band with three members playing various synthesizers, guitars, and drums (both electronic and acoustic). We are the type of band that ends every show drenched in sweat and wanting to play longer. Carefully crafting our songs, we draw influence from all over the left side of the pop spectrum - concocting our own distinct voice which comes out as a Post-Punk, Electronica, R&B, Garage Rock with Laser sounds. (really there is no name for it, sorry)


Our three members consist of Greg Moore on vocals, synth, samples, and guitar; Michael Jordan on vocals, synth, samples, and guitar; and Randy Kehne on electronic and acoustic drums. Michael and Greg’s vocals bring two different styles to the music with Greg’s seething talky style and Michael’s rich, honey-tone vocals.

Indierockcafe.com selected us for their Band of the Week series where they compared us to Pavement and Weezer. "The more we have listened to their self-titled debut over the past half year, the more it has proven itself as one of the best under-the-radar debuts of the year." In 2009, we were nominated for a Northwest Arkansas Music Award.

From our base in Fayetteville, Arkansas, we have been playing venues in the Midwest since 2008 when we formed. Since then, our sound has become increasingly experimental and electronic. In 2009, we released a self-titled EP which quickly sold out. Our new album "Bearfish" was released in January 2011.
