Bradley Banks is a multi-instrumentalist who composes, performs and records all elements of his music. His songs contain organic and electronic instrumentation and moods ranging from frantic and upbeat to somber, pensive and melancholy. His eclectic music reflects his vast experience from playing violin and percussion in orchestras to performing in seedy NYC punk rock venues. Bradley strives to create music that is sonically unique often with mangled, distorted sounds and unconventionally coupled instrumentation to make your project STAND OUT!
Bradley Banks has been playing music for the majority of his life, and currently plays bass for various New York City bands. He has performed in a wide range of settings from playing violin and percussion in orchestras to singing and playing in clubs all around New York City.
Bradley's studio is filled with a variety of instruments and both new and vintage (circa 1950s) pieces of analog recording gear. Most of the microphone pre-amps, microphones and compressors he uses were built, designed or refurbished by Bradley, himself. He uses many homemade distortion pedals and modified compressors to achieve a unique sonic palette.
This song reminds me of a Pavement song in the way that the instruments are played in such a loose and sloppy way. Standard instrumentation, yet with 2 blistering and lazy solos. The verses of the song are very lazy and lazy back. Instrumental, Indie Rock, College Rock
A baritone guitar and bass guitar dual behind a heavy synth and electric guitar track. Could accompany a spaceship, or air battle or some strange alien landscape. Very beautiful while being gritty. Perfect for a montage. Instrumental, Indie Rock, Indie Rock
