Bio: Screens is a band from West Seattle featuring veterans of the Seattle, Bay Area and L.A. music scenes. Screens plays Crystal Skully music; synth heavy, bass driven, trip-pop anthems. Like a John Hughes movie on acid. Like The Journey of Natty Gann. On acid. A pixilated outer space fantasy game ...See Full Bio
“..but perhaps the most intriguing name on the bill is the new jazz-influenced, mood-pop quartet Screens. The West Seattle group has a pair of songs available to stream on their Ocean Tone page which move from trippy electronic-tinged soft rock ("Netherlandia") to the shady side of bossanova ("Maia"); effectively conjuring both The XX and Astrud Gilberto. I was drawn to Screens initially because the group features dynamic Afrocop bassist Carlos Tulloss on guitar and bass, and when I checked them out, I found that the instrumentation as a whole was on that same elevated plane, and the songwriting was imaginative and sophisticated while retaining a distinct pop aesthetic. Listen to "Netherlandia" and "Maia" here, then hit the Croc tonight to see what other delicious ideas they've been brewing.”
