The name Desert Noises—like many of the band’s songs on their debut full-length 27 Ways—came out of a dream that popped into front-man Kyle Henderson’s head while sleeping. “I just woke up and wrote it down on a piece of paper,” says the 24-year-old, who used it for the band he’d first formed with his brother and a friend in the Provo/Orem, Utah, area. Joined by fellow twenty-something cohorts in bassist Tyler Osmond, guitarist Patrick Boyer and drummer Brennan Allen, the foursome set out in a van three years ago and haven’t stopped since.
Recorded in the magical Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, Texas, on the banks of the Rio Grande with producer Nick Jodoin [Black Rebel Motorcycle Club], the album turns those experiences into songs which detail 27 Ways of breaking away and becoming a touring rock ‘n’ roll band. 27 Ways incorporates influences of beat-oriented soul and R&B as well as classic psychedelic rock (Led Zeppelin is a big touchstone), often in the same song.
Desert Noises has spent the last two years building a reputation as a must-see live act by touring relentlessly and bringing their signature brand of unbridled, infectious rock to clubs and major festivals throughout the U.S, including high-visibility gigs at the Austin City Limits Festival and LouFest in St. Louis.
After listening to 27 Ways and experiencing their live show, it becomes abundantly clear that Desert Noises’ level of songwriting and performance is refined well beyond their years.
Tax Brandywine: Rock? Folk? Reggae? Pop? Ska? Punk? Dub? Yes.
