Wrinkles
Wrinkles is a 5 piece indie pop band birthed in the glorious state of Montana. While the band was formed in Helena, MT in 2012, the members are now split between Missoula, MT and Seattle, WA. Wrinkles blends synth driven rhythms with strong hooks and melodies to create a youthful, dance-able, rock sound. Wrinkles is known for ripping sleeves of audience members shirts during concerts and covering artists like Johnny Cash, Grimes, STRFKR, and LCD Soundsystem.

"Their sound recalls the minimalist post-punk of Bauhaus or Siouxsie and the Banshees, with backdrops of sparse, moody organs and keyboards punctuated with the occasional pop hook. Those hooks, though, recall New Order at their poppiest, with squiggly keyboard lines that latch on for dear life to the pulsing electronic rhythms."
- Nathan Weinbender, Spokesman-Review

"What stands out immediately about Sea Giant’s work on their new EP is how human it sounds. Where music created on machines can often sound far removed from human touch, ‘Our Dead Age’ is infused with man-made energy. As a two piece band, there are obvious limitations to what can be played live without the use of tracks. However, Conor Knowles and Kyler Ferguson use these constraints to their advantage, eschewing the more lush, production heavy sound heard on many synth pop records in favor of a raw, minimalist approach. In fact, their bright, biting guitar tones and wailing, unpolished vocals have a lot in common with new wave bands like Television, or more recent punk revivalists, Eddy Current Suppression Ring. They meld these elements with brooding synth bass lines, 80’s inspired beats and bright, organ-esque leads (ala Mates of State) to create a sound that is both influenced by the past and looking to the future."
