Mike Alexis (guitar, vocals), Doug Saenz (drums, keyboards), James Levis (guitar) and Ross Murray (bass) received their indie rock bonafides through years in the bands AM Magic, the Decoration, Upstairs Downstairs and Actionslacks. What brought these four together for another go-around is simple: old friendships, mutual respect and a shared musical history. No Craigslist; no hired guns. The timing was right.

Formed in June 2011, the band immediately got to work, writing songs and getting a few shows under their belt before hunkering down to record their debut EP, Coming Down to the Ghost. Recorded by James Levis during at a warehouse in San Francisco’s SOMA district, the band spent long nights in early fall honing in on their sound. The result is a sharp-focused batch of songs with roots in psych, garage and indie pop.

In 2012 and into 2013, the band was back in the warehouse, with James once again at the helm. Their second release, “Above the Tramps" is more lush and ambitious effort, taking the initial blueprint of their garage-pop debut and creating a more expansive pallet of melodic rock n roll.
