Scully came together as a meeting of minds from the ashes of Oakland California based sunshine rippers The Splinters. As time passed The Splinters disbanded. Fast forwarding a few years later, members Caroline Partamian (guitar/vocals), Courtney Gray (guitar/vocals) and Lauren Stern (bass/vocals) reunited in Brooklyn to play together for the first time since 2011.
The "No Sense" EP recorded by venerable NYC engineer Ben Greenberg & mastered by APTBS & Death by Audio founder Oliver Ackermann sees the band expanding on that California sunshine vibe. Adding the grit & summer trash stench of a New York City Summer, sharpening up and infused with a more potent swagger. Although the band's girl-group sensibilities cannot be denied, Scully's music balances heaviness and pop with nods to Brian Jonestown era Psych, early Punk and '90s grunge. To date, the group has two releases under their belt — a limited-edition split cassette (with fellow Brooklynites Las Rosas) and a 7" split with La Luz on Famous Class’s LAMC imprint.
The "No Sense" EP is the band's Fire Talk debut & is out Summer 2016 on 7" Vinyl & Digitally. In conjunction Fire Talk will make available digitally several Splinters releases previously only available on limited run physical formats. Scully cassette Available via Burger Records.
Erases are a captivating, rather haunting duo, firm in their mission to fuse low-key, organ-driven psychedelia with droning intonation, perhaps best described at narcoleptic krautrock.
The organ is pure Rick Wright, layers of melancholy menace swirling over subtle yet metronomic beats. And Rebecca Orchards voice is treated and submerged mid-mix, almost working like a second keyboard.
Nocturnal yet somehow spacious, Erasers are quietly carving out their own unique niche.
Hypnotic. Compelling. Michael Mueller
