Easy Creatures is a rock band from Philadelphia, PA.
... Joey Simpers-Guitar
Easy Creatures is a new melodic post-hardcore band from Philly made up of some of Delaware’s most notorious transplants to the big city. The group includes members of Walleye, Blackthroat, Railhed and The Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza.
After years of fronting more aggressive acts singer Shane Evans has returned to his roots, eschewing mayhem for melody. His clean, emotive vocals – a cross betwee...n Shawn Brown and Greg Dulli -- drive an angular and tight band of veterans who still have the zeal of kids making their first album.
With an approach reminiscent of Samiam and early Jawbox, Easy Creatures have a consummate Delaware “run-off” sound – an amalgamation of the music from surrounding cities like D.C., Philly, New York and Baltimore – topped off with the angst that comes from living nowhere and everywhere all at once.
Bryan Louie – Guitar, Vocals
Sal DellAquila – Bass, Vocals
Aaron Nice – Drums
Verses Narrow was born in October of 2011 when drummer Aaron Nice (Burial Year/Suicide Nation), and bassist Sal Dell’Aquilla (LaGrecia/A Days Refrain) united with guitarist/vocalist Bryan Louie (Joshua Fit For Battle/Young Lady) in a rehearsal space in Brooklyn. Sharing a love of early 90s bands like Shellac, Quicksand and The Jesus Lizard, the trio began developing a sound that is heavy and melodic, ugly and beautiful, angular yet accessible
The band features Josh Argan of Paint It Black and The Holy Mess' Steve O, as well as Jon Murphy of Sore Saints and Patrick McCunney, formerly of Kill The Man Who Questions.
