Q&As/SF Local Bands

Q&A: Hēran Soun

How would describe your music? The reason why I made this music alone was purely due to my failure at being able to describe my music. I failed with the musicians I loved playing with. I failed to articulate how they could get the noises out that would make the music. That’s the same way… Keep Reading

Q&A: Greater Sirens

How did you come up with the name of the band? We actually started the band under a different name, Younger Dryas, which was a historic climate event Greg had been learning about in a geography class at the time.

Q&A: The Echo Exchange

How did you come up with the name of the band? As the band was forming, our bassist, Bod was obsessing over “Echoes” by Pink Floyd, so popped up as part of the name. But to take it to the full band name, we sat down and thought about how we write music together: The… Keep Reading

Local Band Spotlight: Great Highway

How did you come up with the name of the band? We wanted a name that had energy and intensity to it, and that would also immediately place us as a San Francisco band. Back in the day, when we were first starting out, we would write songs at a friend’s house at 48th &… Keep Reading
