Geanies, an electrifying , blues-influenced alt-rock band, release the debut EP, Can’t See The  Sun, this June via Mule Kick Records 

The Venice, California band is fronted by lead guitarist, singer/composer Sean Michael Howe.  Howe has the colossal sound and technical delivery of a player well beyond his 19 years. Howe  is joined on the record by Eliot Lorango on bass and Ethan Maxwell on drums, making this a  power trio to contend with. The recording was produced by KP Hawthorn of Mule Kick  Records and Steve Berns at Berns’ Fitting Room Studio in LA.  


Can’t See The Sun genuflects to the great guitar players of post-modern music, such as Jimi  Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and B.B. King, while at the same time paying homage to the best  of 9s alt-rockers such as Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and Foo Fighters.  


Howe found music at age seven while innocently listening to a band in an after-school  program. He started noodling with his father’s guitars and quickly mastered the basics. Sean’s  father was the guitar tone aficionado in the household, while his mother shared her love for  chordal harmonies with her son. Having gathered rudimentary musical knowledge at a young  age and forming different versions of rock bands as a pre-teen, Sean effused, “I love being part  of a massive sound that connects you and everyone around who may be listening . There is no  better feeling when everyone is with you and into it.” 


“Bury Me”, the first single off of the EP, has the angst one would expect of a SoCal-bred, Gen Z  innovator measuring the uncertainty of the world around him as he prepares to become a part  of it. An accompanying video with tongue-in-cheek humor will be released simultaneously.  Other tracks on this dynamic compact offering are the anthemic title track “Can’t See The Sun”  along with the grungy “Here She Comes” that finds Howe comfortable with his Nirvana  influence. “I’d Like to Buy the World” comes in powerfully and incorporates a Jimi Hendrix  flavored riff and utilizes a viciously tasty wah-wah pedal in the bridge. It’s “Nowadays” that hits  differently, as it deals with coming into adulthood and looking back at life decisions. “Gonna  wait ’til you’re old, and wonder what we could have made, how we’re living in nowadays.”  


The Geanie is officially out of the bottle, as this band of profoundly enlightened fresh punks  emerges onto the rock scene this summer.
