From the first bluesy guitar riff shredded by Brandon Shockey on GAMMA PAW’s debut release — The Moth EP — the band warns listeners they are taking a trip to an overdriven landscape comprised of creation, folly, introspection, perseverance and, ultimately, an exploration of the intricacies of what it means to be human.
Add in the solid live drumming from Andrew Saunders, bass lines from Jacob Wayne Bryner that consistently find a way to stand out as a funky force to be reckoned with, and vocal expressions from Jacob that simultaneously sound prophetic and understated, and you’ve got a hefty audio meal of psychedelic alternative rock out of Fort Collins, Colorado.
With influences garnered from 1970s heavy metal bands like Black Sabbath, ‘80s new wave, ‘90s alt rock, Middle Eastern melodies, and Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” GAMMA PAW is an American musical patchwork that proves its stitches are strong and its seams are secure.
