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.
