Hanging somewhere in the balance between the tradition of American heartland rock
and punk infused powerpop with a tinge of classic rock, sound wise COPPERSKY can
be seen as cousins to rock bands such as The Hold Steady, Pearl Jam and The Who.
Delivered in lead singer Erik Zwart’s rich deep voice (often compared to that of Matt
Beringer and Craig Finn), thematically COPPERSKY’s lyrics revolve around semi-autobiographical
confessions of failures and redemption tied to running a small business
and relationships with friends, family and better halfs. There are undoubtedly parallels
between these voices and Zwarts, however his voice retains it’s own unique qualities.
After releasing their first album “Relief, Be Around the Bend” and an ensuing self-titled
7 inch EP independently, they drew the attention of renown German label Uncle M (Hot
Water Music, The Smith Street Band, Boysetsfire) and released their second album “If
We’re Losing Everything” with them in 2016.
