Kalta Eye is an original hard rock band with both punk and progressive leanings, culminating in ambitious, thought-provoking compositions and an energetic live show.

Biography

Kalta Eye as we know it was born in the spring of 2006, when guitarist/vocalist Dan Klink, drummer Marc Brennan, and bassist Alex Athans decided to forge ahead after members of their old band Midnight Drives left to seek their musical fortunes elsewhere. But the seeds were planted much earlier.

Marc, a drummer with an affinity for both the highly technical and the highly groovy, had been musical partners with musical prodigy Dan since high school. They did not meet Alex until 2002, but when that happened the three musicians recognized that they had met their musical brethren. Throughout all of the line-up and name changes over the next four years, Kalta Eye was born in 2006 and hit the Boston music scene shortly thereafter, playing shows and wowing audiences with their blend of high-energy songs and virtuoso musicianship.

With influences as broad as Radiohead, The Beatles, and Faith No More to Sigur Ros, Pink Floyd, and The Police, Kalta Eye fuses the bombast and grandeur of prog with the energy and ferocity of alternative and hard rock. They recorded a 4-song EP Surgery with Taylor Barefoot in the fall of 2006, and will be recording a full-length album in the near future.

Kalta Eye has played shows in the Boston area at clubs such as Bill's Bar, TT the Bear's Place, The Middle East Upstairs, and The Bullfinch Yacht Club.

Lyrics

Ocean

Written By: Daniel Klink/ Kalta Eye

Everything's changing
Rearranging
You can see it in our eyes
You can see it in our eyes

In this ocean
We're all in the same ocean
You can see it in our eyes
You can see it in our eyes

Climbing up these hills
Reaching for the prize
Every time it hits so hard
Climbing up these hills
Reaching for the prize
Every time it hits so hard
We die

In this ocean
We're looking for the potion
You can see it in our eyes
You can see it in our eyes
You can see it in our eyes
You can see it in our eyes

Climbing up these hills
Reaching for the prize
Every time it hits so hard
Baby you and I
Should unite and try
To light up
To light up the sky

I'm floating
In this ocean

The Ship

Written By: Daniel Klink/ Kalta Eye

We're going for a ride
Into the dark night
We're going for a ride
Just to see the light

We're going down with the ship

You might as well just try
To sit back and relax
Take a deep breath
Let the universe take its path

We're going down with the ship

We're trying our best

We're going down with the ship

We'd better break these walls down
