Super rad! Congratulations, Glen Galloway, T.s. Ward, and Preston Swirnoff!

Insanely exciting new band news!

We are over the moon to welcome San Diego's Sumatraban to the family. We here at Luau have been huge fans of Glen Galloway's for over twenty years. From the mindbending squall of Trumans Water, to the mutant rap of Soul-Junk to the recent all-out noise assault of Octagrape he's been a leading light in the world of ever-evolving musical exploration.

Sumatraban was formed when Glen brought on Octagrape drummer T.S. Ward and, after listening to his Shining Path records far too often, coaxed guitarist/organist Preston Swirnoff (also of the incredible free-jazz collective Seesaw Ensemble) out of retirement.

Together, through their mutual love of all things motorik, psych-Japan, messthetical, post-post-punkard, and Beefheartian, the 3 have formed a sound they call ‘Now-Wave’. Sculpted via weird acute triangle of contact-mic'd drums, tri-amped guitar sub-octaves, and dripping discordant keys. Big dystopian/utopian ideas are packed into four minute song blasts to maintain urgency. It is the sound of invisible cities, impossible buildings, and extinct waterways. It soon became obvious that they must name themselves after that infamous imaginary Indonesian thoroughfare with no speed limits and a mind-bending roadside view: the Sumatra-bahn.

The debut EP, MU, is released on June 29th and you can hear the first single from it, Bubble It Out, at the link below as well as all the usual digital outlets (links in comments).

A truly incredible debut album is due to follow later in the year.

It's truly a pinch yourself honour to be involved with such an awesome band.

Res·o·nance –
The reinforcement or prolongation of sound by reflection from a surface or by the synchronous vibration of a neighboring object.

For nearly 17 years, Singing Serpent has been casting sound waves from west to east coast with notable success, scoring all manner of spots from the likes of Jack Daniel's, Nike, BMW, Visa, Dunkin' Donuts Donuts (to name a few), and hosting recording sessions to bands like Hot Snakes and Tera Melos. Today, the Singing Serpent team’s efforts and sound continue to be infinite, unstoppable, and evolving.

As of August 2017, Singing Serpent will have a new team member and executive producer––Jonathan Spencer of Richmond, Virginia––on board to catch some sound waves. Similar to many other Singing Serpent-ers, Spencer's origins begin with rocking in bands, i.e. spitfire and Scarlet, touring from coast to coast, and creating dents in the music scene. Creative. Bold. Risk-taking. Genuine. Inclusive. Spencer was driven to create his own empire with 30th Century Masters as well as Black Iris Music. His background has given him the liberty to explore his creativity––leading to many fun and well received pieces, as exemplified in his work with Toyota USA, Xbox, GEICO, etc. Spencer's energy resonates with the Singing Serpent vibe, bringing a whole new hop to Virginia’s step.

But don’t just take my word, scope these babies:

Keep a look out for the future of Singing Serpent––magical things are to come.
