Typically a duo, Ian Hunt (drums/vocals) and Michael Hunter (violin/vocals) first began toying around with the idea of a 4-person lineup in the summer of ‘15. They recruited Diwas Gurung (guitar) and Drew Jones (bass), and within a few jam sessions discovered that many of the songs originally written for the duo format lent themselves quite naturally to the fuller instrumentation.
The reception of the new lineup at live shows proved enthusiastic, and Hunter began writing songs specifically with the full band in mind, taking advantage of Gurung’s technical skills and knack for ambient sounds along with Jones and Hunt’s natural chemistry as a rhythm section. A new sound evolved, blending the tone of a violin with electric guitar, adventurous but accessible songwriting and above all else music that moves and thrills its listeners. Their debut EP “No Locks & No Bars” is now available for download on Bandcamp, and streaming on Soundcloud.
