Surfer Yeti
Surfer Yeti
We are a Bellingham indie alternative rock group that takes inspiration from the nature that surrounds us in the pacific northwest. Our music and performance style also take light influences from grunge, garage, folk, and psychedelic rock. While some of our songs pack a hard punch, other songs of ours would rather pack a soft, slow back rub. All of our music, however, serves the purpose of helping our audience have a real good time.
The Breaking
The Breaking
"The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland's relatively recent rise to 'cultural mecca' has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, The Breaking - a band of 90's-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City - still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their debut self-titled LP is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage.

The Breaking challenges convention in a way that earns the group an edge and authenticity. The songs are deliberate and gripping, and the band uses their contradicting influences to great advantage. Front-man Adam Sweeney's penchant for brooding minor-key introspection collides with lead guitarist Tim Karplus' affinity for mainstream pop hooks, while bassist Rick Bouvette ties it all together with a punchy low end. The band crafts original songs with mass appeal that remain firmly rooted in the alt rock tradition of the Cascadian glory days. "

"Mad Science, originally starting in early 2016, was the solo project of Stephen (The Madd Scientist) Amundson but quickly turned into a full fledged band garnering creative influences from Ryan Rodgers along side the steady grooves of Isaac Mims and Sam Blacketer adding rhythmic genius on the bass guitar and drums respectively, and to be topped off by smooth trumpet lines supplied by Kyle McAllister.

Amundson, Mims, and McAllister had all been in the melodic hard rock band The Masses previously that had broken up due to internal strife and creative differences. With past shortcomings in mind, Amundson began recording a solo album and had completed work on nearly an entire record upon realizing he'd much rather play music collectively with a band rather than as a solo act. The record (then called Future Nostalgia) was co-opted for the use of an entire band and Rodgers began to add his own unique touches to the songs as well as bringing with him his own diverse catalog of original music.

On May 22nd 2017 the project officially began.

The Madness has begun"
