The Soonest

-from SF
-It's been a busy couple years for the guys in The Soonest. They've tirelessly worked on creating music that grows with every listen. The San Francisco quintet started as a side project that quickly turned into a full band as they discovered their sound which has been described as rich and haunting and has been compared to bands such as The National, Bloc Party, and Arcade Fire. The members' diverse geographical backgrounds also help bring different perspectives to the music seeing how the members come from cities such as Atlanta, Boston, St. Louis, Los Angeles, and San Jose.


-Alt Indie Rock harkens back to Built to Spill and Grandaddy.
