Originally formed by Colorado natives Joey Riley (vocals/lyrics/keys) and Patrick Greene (vocals/lyrics/guitar), who’ve been friends since junior high, the band takes its name from a passing conversation about finger painting.
The moniker stuck and has since come to signify the band’s appreciation for all artistic expressions and mediums. Over the past couple years, Riley and Greene welcomed Ryan McGuire (drums) to the line-up. And now, the three go by Chiefy Roon, Pablo Tortoise, and Animal, respectively, on stage.
Together, they create layered, thoughtful lyrics set against an atmospheric mix of textured synths, heady guitar riffs and moments of dissonant perfection. Think Cage The Elephant meets Spoon or Ween crashes into MGMT blended with a dash of early influence courtesy of The Kinks and The Beatles.
