“Amazingly energetic” (Left Bank Magazine)
“The thunders of shred fests & guitar pedal bursts churn & turn like the elements that rain down around the cabin that houses the fever of seasonal melancholy.” (IMPOSE)
Boston-based psych/math rock quartet, Bat House, drop their self-titled album. The band recorded the self-produced LP at Converse’s Rubber Tracks studio in downtown Boston.
The unbound nature of free form expression cultivated in Boston’s DIY basement community brought Bat House together in early 2014. Comprised of Emmet Hayes (Bass & Vocals), Nicole Pompei (Drums), Alexandra Juleen (Guitar) and Shane Blank (Guitar), the group’s sound draws inspiration from artists like Palm, Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Maps & Atlases, Tera Melos and TTNG. Throughout the summer of 2014, the band began writing in an underground rehearsal space called the Sound Museum, where they developed their sound and wrote their first handful of songs. The group then moved to a house deemed the “Banana Hammock”, where they recorded their first EP, ghosts, and parts of their upcoming 2017 release. During the two years spent in the house, the band established a sense of community in the DIY scene by hosting basement shows for nationally touring bands.
Keep your eyes peeled for more from Bat House and their album that showcases a sound that “falls somewhere between a mellow math rock anthem and a driving, utterly punk-as-f*ck spectacle.” (Sound of Boston)
