Philly-based experimental psych-pop band Son Step is heading out on tour in support of their new album Fossilillies (out 5/17 via Grind Select), and they’re bringing their wild live show to Milestone Club on April 29th alongside Modern Moxie!
Son Step is a guitar-less, synth-drenched outfit, comprised of twin brothers Jon and Chris Coyle (vocals, synthesizers, bass), Joel Gleiser (vocals, electronics), and Matt Scarano (percussion). With their unique setup, the group expertly assembles twisted percussive layers and electric textures that build upon each other, resembling a game of Jenga on the brink of collapse. Maintaining a firm pop sensibility, complex rhythmic backbone and affinity for natural sounds, Son Step weave repeated vocal phrases and colorful, unpredictable instrumentation into a beautiful, cacophonous collage — eliciting feelings of keen awareness and wild bliss.
Almost a decade after formation, Fossilillies is Son Step’s third full-length. It’s also their most dynamic, evolved offering yet, a whirlwind of novel soundscapes where each member is an integral part of the songwriting process. Raw, impromptu synth phrases and harmonies run rampant through each track, a dream-like atmosphere propelling the record forward. Ultimately, the album is a nine-song postcard, illustrating the band in a period of particularly heavy touring, adventure and introspection.
