Biography

Born out of Olympia, WA, a city globally acclaimed for it's wildly diverse and creative music scene, The Celestials are no strangers to the realm of sonic innovation. Blending experimental guitar riffs with atmospheric soundscapes, the four piece takes alternative rock to an entirely new level, all the while delivering bittersweet, catchy melodies.

Originally a duo-project between longtime pals Mike Elliott and Max Keena, the two relocated from northern Virginia to the colorful and fabled Olympia, WA in order to find a new home for their musical outlet. Soon after moving to the Pacific Northwest, the two recruited high school buddy Keir Allison-Bourne on guitar and local hero John Winter on synth and bass. The new outfit resulted in a wide range of influences: taking inspiration from electronic label Warped, 90's shoegaze, and the garage rock revival.

Lyrics

Alright

Written By: The Celestials

You turn up, staring out, looking for signs that'll never come
I'm alright, I'll be fine I just need some time to think
If I can't scare this away, don't hold back, confront them they
Overuse, mislead and confuse, the same old shit that everyone's used
I'm alright, I'll be fine, I just need some time to think
