Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, Periscope's sound is an
intricate blend of guitar-driven alternative rock with electronic
undertones tempered with classic pop sensibilities. The experience is
definitely their own, yet nostalgically familiar. The distinctly woven
parts are catalyzed by a concisely heavy-handed rhythm section that
brings a strength and tightly-leashed ferocity to sometimes fragile
concepts and lyrics. Periscope, “The Submersive Alternative”.

Periscope is Matt Harrison, Trevor Gabriel and Michael Broadus.
Periscope was conceived through chemistry rather than the specific
vision of any one person. It became a collective that would allow them
all to operate without any set limitations.

Gabriel, the bands “Musical Super Computer”, had returned to the bay
from The California Institute of the Arts with an increased wealth of
musical knowledge and the drive to prove it. Harrison had been playing
in other projects, but his real talents as a song writer and front man
had not yet been realized. This was, however, instantly recognized by
the rest of the trio as Harrison's tenacity and energy are unmistakable.
Broadus brings to the table a high energy, back of the beat playing
style and also acts as the bands producer, that is until Rick Rubin
finally takes their calls.
