The American band were started in 2004 by guitarist/vocalist Ethan Miller as a on offshoot by psych band Comets On Fire. Working closely with famed producer Rick Rubin, the music soon began to take shape. It was a mix of The Faces, Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Damned.
The band – also featuring Isaiah Miller (guitar/vocals), Joel Robinow (keyboards/guitar/vocals), Cyrus Cornisky (bass) and Raj Ojha (drums) – release their third album The Russian Wilds through Agitated Records on March 12. This was produced by Tim Green.
Says Miller: “There was a point when we were really trying to blend Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland, Steely Dan’s Gaucho and Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness On The Edge of Town. I love the Boss’ singing where he’s just blowing out his voice, even when it’s just a pop ballad moment. And we were inspired by some of the grooves and close mic stuff on Gaucho, and by how Electric Ladyland runs the gamut from super long jams to blues numbers to drifting psychedelic pieces. There’s a sense of audacity to these records – a band chasing down strong, invisible connections – and there’s moments like that on our record. We didn’t always do the smartest or safest things.”
