Still working on that hot first release.



Transcarlet, at first impression a standard rock quartet, dresses its sound in a unique blend of influence from UK power rock to the raw intimacy of softer indie rock. It is this dedication to dynamic variety, coupled with a love for lyric and melody, which makes Transcarlet so engaging. The performers are committed to each song; evidenced by the passion of each performance. Influences include: Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Snowpatrol, Sigur Ros, Dave Matthews Band, Keane and more.
Transcarlet started one afternoon in early 2009. Ryan had approached Chris about being in Chris's band (which at the time consisted of some chords and words). They met in the shed of one Steve Martin. They drove a big, green van. They hashed out ideas. They drank lots of coffee.
Chris then landed a show at the legendary Thurston County Fair. It was all very exciting, but it left them with two weeks to actually find members and become a real band. Chris called cousin Tj for bass support, and the multi-talented Brian Russell for percussive support on hand drums. Ryan preferred the idea of having real drums, and roped Tim into playing the show. They hopped in the van, drove five-hundred miles, practiced five hours, and played at five o'clock to a raucous crowd of fourteen.
They have since played shows to audiences of all ages and recorded a four track EP titled "Intercostal".
