The Saint James Society

 

Austin TX psychedelic garage rockers THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY play electric rock music that brilliantly connects the dots between the late ‘60s British blues-based bands and the brooding atmospheres of early ‘80s post punk resulting in a hypnotically powerful sound the fabulous five-piece has coined "Pentecostal Desert Glam". The band fuses a "raw energy" sound with the pseudo-mysticism of The Doors and the guitar orchestrations of classic hard rock, skillfully synthesizing these musical touchstones to create their self titled debut EP. An energized recording bursting with a muscularity as fuzzy headed and adventurous as their off-stage exploits, the group’s darkly iridescent, kill-your-idols vibe is a fist-punching yelp of energy that demands to be heard at maximum volume. When the heavy swagger of vocalist/bassist Brandon Burkart aligns with the band's heavy-footed rhythms, ticking time-bomb beat and stunning twin vocal tandem of rebel queens Elza Burkart and Candice Bertalan, the resulting musical statement mainlines the thrill of defiance straight to the listener's heart. Placing their steps in the petrified footprints left by the Velvet Underground and the slightly fresher ones of Spacemen 3, THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY reduces the blues to one nasty lick pickled in distortion. Meet your new favorite band.
