A flamboyant deciever; one who attracts customers through tricks or jokes

—try not to read too much into that. We were looking for a name and Michael read it in between dry heaves in a bathroom stall somewhere in Spain.

 Because he's cultured.

Lyrically driven garage rock/indie-folk with the occasional behind-the-head guitar break.

Michael Valle - guitars, vocals
Alex Alcocer - drums, synth, vocals
Declan Rory Murtagh - keys, glockenspiel, electric gtr, lap steel, vocals
Alex Lopez - bass, vocals

We formed in 2016 after having played in several other bands for years; The Hand of Fate slapped all those projects around a bit but thankfully we are way into that kind of thing.
 
  That and biting.

Driven by conversational, often sardonic lyrics paired with heavily stylized musical idiosyncrasies we’ll be attempting to jump over the Springfield Gorge that is your heart. There is a good possibility we will plunge to our bloody death. Thank you.
