The best kept secret in music


"Asian Public Radio (Philadelphia, PA)"

"Moody, stylish in your absence is Kansas' twister of a band poised to blow the rest of the world away with its powerful riffs, dark, brooding lyricism and the eclectic talents of its four members: Jovid's laudanum-laced vocals recall Garbage's Shirley Manson, providing the chill contrast to the aural layerings of Steve Migdol's soul-searing guitar work, Justin Brown's immensely inventive and caustic bassline and drummer Dan Herdman's primal barrage. Their resulting napkin demos defy stereotype-casting and push boundaries such as the tentative acoustic beginnings on "Nothing (All I Can Say)" give way to a schizoid fussilade taking the listener on a visceral joyride.

The startlingly raw intimacy of their songs hint at a precocious and auspicious debut. This is a band to watch---and listen out for."

Feeling a bit camera shy


We all have a deep love and respect for music, and hope to be able to make a career of it. We're range in age from 22 to 26, and we've all experienced a lot in our lives so far. Each of us has experience in classical music as well, so that adds a different depth as well. Our influences include Tori Amos, Radiohead, Stabbing Westward, Tool, Queesryche, Ani Difranco, Matthew Good, Nada Surf, and A Perfect Circle. Mix that together and you get the idea.
