Tetrachromat
Tetrachromat
Tetrachromat is a 4 piece progressive metal band. We employ extended range instruments and layered guitar affects in our writing and performance. We take a lot of influence from contemporary progressive metal, which seeks to blend a variety of different styles of music together into one package. Our band consists of 8-string guitarist Frank Rowland, 6-string guitarist Nathan Malick, 5-string bassist Ethan Wilson and drummer Josh Pehrson. Balancing our work and school schedules, the four of us began jamming together in the Fall of 2015, and have since performed a number of times at bars, venues and house shows around Bellingham. We will be recording an album this summer, 2016.
Gazelle(s)
Gazelle(s)
With a tendency towards dramatic shifts and an approach rooted in restlessness, Eugene, Oregon’s Gazelle(s) brand of instrumental rock is one without boundaries. “There’s No One New Around You” shifts from moments of elegiac ambience to menacing doom. Sorrowful violin melodies, pummeling guitar textures, and pounding bass and drums interweave, creating a sonic carpet structured in a 4/4 foundation that is suddenly pulled from beneath your feet. Their intriguing time changes create a free fall into a solitary darkened void, out of which emerges something beautiful and sanguine.

Gazelle(s)’ debut album comes after two years of playing shows and refining their sound. Individually, the members of Gazelle(s) are no stranger to the stage, having opened for bands like Mono, Toro Y Moi, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and Minus the Bear. When it came time to put their hard work to tape, Gazelle(s) traveled to world-renowned studio Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree, CA to immerse themselves in the desert and experience how a studio with such a rich sonic history would galvanize their music. The resulting LP, “There’s No One New Around You,” takes the isolating feelings one experiences in the desert, and imbues them with a vastness and power that comes from four players ready to pour years of touring and experience into something new and distinctive.
