Hailed as a breakthrough act to watch in 2017, lespecial, based in Boston and upstate New York, have established themselves as innovators and tastemakers on their own unique trajectory. Disguised as an average power trio from Boston, lespecial creeps around corners and reaches into the darkest depths of the absurd. lespecial is meticulous, creative and defiant; eclectic, multi-talented and driven. The band prides itself in extending the boundaries of musical ability, rebelliously laying waste to the limits of popular music. (Ragin Randy Entertainment) Labeled with... such unique descriptions as dark future groove or death funk to trance metal or haunted house party music, it is tough to put ones finger on this dangerous and determined trifectas distinct sound. A lespecial set brings their signature blend of psychedelic metal infused funk along with deep, thumping synths and 808s that will have your hips swaying as quick as your head banging. From the bands origins as three friends in high school in the woods of Connecticut who shared a passion for building unique instruments and hitting them with drum sticks, through studying music at a collegiate level to now running their own music school and studio, The Music Cellar, in Millerton NY, Jonny Grusauskas (guitar/synth/sampler/percussion/vocals), Luke Bemand (bass/synth/percussion) and Rory Dolans (drums/samples) unique chemistry is what gives them their incomparable personality
Drawing influence from artists such as Rage Against the Machine, J. Dilla, Primus, Weather Report, and many, many more, Cycles fuses an eclectic blend of genres to produce a truly unique and cohesive sound. Although only two years old, Cycles have over 200 shows under their belt with tours extending across the entire U.S. In the middle of a massive Fall Tour in support of their first full-length album, Vacation, the band is dialed and at the top of their game.
The first full-length album, Vacation, is out now. After releasing two DIY EPs recorded in their basement within the first year of the band’s existence, the guys were eager to do some work in a real studio. Recorded at Mountain Star Studio in Blackhawk, CO, Vacation captures the current sound and direction of the band. This album presents the listener with an accurate representation of Cycles’ uniquely dark and heavy sound, catchy hooks, and exceptional musicianship.
“A fast-paced journey through time and space, with riveting guitar work and a jam-heavy sound that seems near impossible to create with only three musicians” –Live For Live Music
