Gravity – Band Review – Electronica/Funk/Awesomeness

The Electronica/Trip Hop/Funk band Gravity out of Denver, Co is a MUST see live, however if you can’t get out to the Mile High City just yet, hearing their stuff online is just as satisfying..almost.

Members:

Brian Cornell – Keys

Mark Cooley – Guitar / Live Production

Moe Valez – Bass / Synth Bass

Tynan Olsen – Drums


One of the reasons I like Gravity so much is their experimental nature. They play around with a number of different genres and like to blend them together to form something completely different. The result is an energy-packed feel good explosion that will have you head bumping all day.

These guys are on the cutting edge for sure. One could easily describe their sound as electro-funk, but then I think they’d be missing out on the bigger picture. Their music ultimately represents a higher form of creative expression that is something all it’s own. It is really an awesome experience that I recommend everyone check out. This band is ILL!

You can find Gravity’s tour schedule here. Also look out for Gravity’s upcoming EP entitled Fire Sermon. It will be available for free sometime in the coming weeks. You will be able to download it for FREE on their website and you can stay updated by liking them on their Facebook page.

Here’s a sneak peak track off of their upcoming EP. This track is called Virga, which means an observable streak of precipitation that falls from a cloud but evaporates before reaching the ground. This track is disgusting!

The Further Room Band Review

The Further Room – “Persephone”

The Further Room is an amazing Alternative/Fusion/Pop band out of Columbia, South Carolina. The band consists of:

Adam Palmer – Vocals, guitar

Barrett Self – Vocals, guitar, piano

Matt Lewis – Drums

Lizbet Kloot – Violin

Mike Shirk – Bass

Their sound is an awesome amalgamation of different styles that pulls you right in. With meaningful lyrics and amazing voices, Adam Palmer and Barrett Self will make you a fan for a long time to come.

As described on their Myspace: If One Republic and Snow Patrol had a 9 pound, 5 ounce autistic… I’m sorry…. aRtistic baby, we’re what would be delivered.

They kind of remind me of one of my favorite bands, Temple Scene, without as much of the electronic stuff. I really love how they bring the violin in there and the acoustic stuff is awesome! All in all these guys are dirty, and I highly recommend giving them a listen.


The Further Room’s debut album, Needful Things is on iTunes now.
