One Flew West
Colorado pop/rockers, One Flew West, are back with their second EP, ‘Trial And Error’. After an extremely lucrative release of the lead single and title track, this is sure to be their biggest most impactful release to date. The track has been featured by notable publications including Alternative Press, idobi Radio, and New Noise Magazine as well as been added to Spotify-curated playlists The Scene and Pop Punk’s Not Dead among many others. The EP centers around the idea of honesty and not beating around the bush when it comes to one’s outlook on life. From saying “F*ck you!” to the bad things that are happening in society, to not giving up on your hopes and dreams, there’s a little something for everyone on this collection of punchy and succinct songs. One Flew West’s ‘Trial And Error’ represents a metamorphosis for the band. It appears that they’ve found their sweet spot sonically that uniquely falls somewhere between pop/punk and folk rock. After 2014’s ‘Kind Of Love’, 2015’s ‘Selective Memory EP’, 2017’s ‘All In My Head / Ten Years Later Split’, ‘Trial And Error’ comes at a crucial time for One Flew West who find themselves at a transition point and ready to take the next big step in their career.

Formed in the Summer of 2010 in the small town of Longmont, Colorado, One Flew West has grown from a high school garage band into a full-scale rock machine storming up and down the front range. Now based in Denver, the four-piece has made a lasting mark on the local music scene and look to make that mark on the national scene in the near future. Uniquely combining rock and roll with various aspects of folk, pop and punk rock, there are few bands out there that sound like One Flew West making it difficult to fill in the cliché definition of, "They sound like so-and-so". The band has been recognized by numerous Colorado-based radio stations and publications as a soon-to-break-out artist. Known for their high-energy live shows and multi-dimensional songwriting, One Flew West has built up a dedicated fan base and is on their way to the national touring circuit. Their Selective Memory EP came out in October of 2015 and instantly made a splash throughout Colorado and into the Rocky Mountain region. In the spring of 2017, the band released two singles, "All In My Head" and "Ten Years Later" to glowing reviews leaving fans and the community eager for more. Late 2017 will see the release of the first single from the One Flew West’s next EP, ‘Trial And Error’ - slated for a full release in early 2018.

Inspired by late nights in Hollywood, high speed car chases, red eye flights and vintage skateboard videos, the synth-punk musings of SLOW CAVES bleed a James Dean-esque revelry that explodes into a rich baritone croon.

There’s adrenaline, sonic vibration, blistering guitars and throbbing bass lines. It blends and molds together to create something visceral, yet refined.

It’s badass. And like any crash, you just can’t turn away.
There's adrenaline, there's sonic vibration, there's blistering guitars and throbbing bass lines. It blends and molds together to create something visceral yet refined. It's badass. And like any crash, you just can't turn away.

Originally from Northern Colorado, SLOW CAVES came together as kindred spirits seeking to create quality music that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end. Experimenting with synthesizers and backed by the “who gives a damn” ethos of punk rock, the delivery is fast, loud and in your face. Jakob Mueller’s dulcet tones lure you in to a false sense of security, only to be spat out the other end in a high-powered and fuzz-laden declamation. Jackson Lamperes sets the beat from the back, smashing the skins, combined with David Dugan and Oliver Mueller’s energetic guitars and driving bass, carry you deliriously along a perilous line.

It's a line that leads you through the night towards its hedonistic possibilities, leaving you wondering whether you should be dancing on tables or speeding down Santa Monica freeway in reverse.

So heed this advice and don’t be fooled by the name: SLOW CAVES will keep you moving - and have you exiting their dark crevice exhausted, confused, yet totally satisfied.

Their self-titled debut EP, SLOW CAVES was released on June 2014, and included songs designed to soundtrack the greatest movie you’ve never seen. Make sure you get in on the mayhem.
