Combining alternative vocal styles with aggressive dance beats, and embellishing each track with imaginative, synthy sound-scapes, Go Periscope claims its own territory; bridging the gap between Powerpop and Electronica.
Officially formed in early 2008, the Seattle-based duo – Florin Merano (Vocals, Keyboards) and Joshua Frazier (Vocals, Keyboards, Guitars) – is already captivating a large and growing audience through Myspace, Purevolume, Facebook and Seattle radio station C89.5.
Florin and Joshua began playing instruments and producing music at an early age, and each brings a broad range of influences to the band. From the melodic synth riffs floating through 80’s rock bands like New Order and The Cars, to the fist-pumping anthems of bands like Blink 182 and New Found Glory, their sound incorporates the shiniest cuts of their favorite artists. The result is fresh, hook-heavy, and unexpected.
In the summer of 2008, after several years of collaborating on demos, the boys began work on their first album. The 12-track self-titled L.P. is the product of months of writing, performing, recording and producing in their Seattle apartment. Florin and Joshua draw their lyrical and musical inspiration from critical coming-of-age experiences. Whether capturing the youthful energy of a typical high school weekend or the grief of leaving a girlfriend for college and knowing things will never be the same, the scenes are honest and easily relatable. Even when the subject matter is painful, the stuttering percussion and harmonic progressions keep your head rocking.
With a carefully developed, distinct sound, Go Periscope now looks to the future with great excitement. The unveiling of the band’s first album is a milestone that marks their maturing creative expression and prepares for a more intimate connection with their fans. Go Periscope is now set to pursue their dream of engaging listeners with their unique sound one song at a time.
