Since 2010, NVO has been rocking the scene with a steady assault
of guitar, bass, drums, synthesizers and whatever else they find to channel the funk. The group takes an organic path to groove creation, always dissecting and reconstructing their sounds with the freshest tech. The resulting fusion of bass-heavy rock, sci-fi funk and rave-hop epitomizes the NVO sound as they blast you into space.
The quartet has taken their unique live-electronic style and sound one step further with their latest release, “The Signal,” wrapping their wildly digital synth beats around analog guitar, trumpet, drums, and vocals. Out 3/2/17 on Mallabel Music, The Signal features collaborations with Lateef the Truthspeaker and Eko Zu.
NVO’s previous release, 2015’s “Night Vision Odyssey” rapidly rose up the Beatport charts, ranking in the Top 10 for Electro House and Chillout, and Top 25 for House and Electronica. They have provided support for acts like MSTRKRFT, Jagwar Ma, Goldfish, Break Science, Particle, The New Deal, Lotus, Conspirator, and Bernie Worrell (of P Funk and Talking Heads.) Their music has been featured in the Hulu show, “Resident Advisors” and at the SF Giant’s stadium.
Spyn Reset is no stranger to genre bending music. With their electro-rock bringing elements of rock to mind bending rhythms with synthesizers and hard driving melodies, Spyn Reset has left a lasting impression on their Seattle hometown and beyond. With a back catalog to boot, including their most recent single release "Autodidactic", Spyn Reset "kicks the beat into high gear, creating an electro-dance-rock track with a stellar guitar riff” - Seattle Weekly. The albums are recorded at London Bridge Studios. They are produced & engineered by Geoff Ott(President of Pacific NW Chapter Grammy's Recording Academy). The band has been fortunate to share the stage with Tauk, Assembly of Dust, Eminence Ensemble, and Industrial Revelation at venues that include Nectar Lounge (Seattle, WA), Cervante's Other Side (Denver, CO), and Whiskey A Go Go (LA).
Co-writers and original founding members Michael Carney and Adam Dragland began a musical journey over a decade ago in Saratoga Springs, New York. The collaborative result, Seven Stories Falling, landed an eclectic range of opening slots with Dashboard Confessional, Ludacris, Blue Oyster Cult and other established artists along the East coast.
After relocating to the Bay Area in 2006, SF bass player Adam Finkin disembarked for Americana outfit Sioux City Kid. Adam and Michael spent several years searching for the right musical recipe, performing throughout the Bay Area under the name Team Candy. With the addition of veteran Seattle rock drummer John Hollis (Gerald Collier, Ian Moore, Burning Opera), Gold Minor at last took shape.
Gold Minor debuted its first full-length release, "Bone Flowers", in the Spring of 2015 and set out on and ambitious US tour. 2017 will see the release of their first single since "Bone Flowers" and the start of an exciting new chapter in a long-running musical adventure.
