BIO: THE IMPLIERS
Dan and Charles began making music together at age 15 and had an immediate impact on the bursting underground indie scene that also produced Future Islands, Valiant Thorr, and Municipal Waste. By age 17, their songs earned placement on compilations alongside diverse popular acts such as Of Montreal, Fugazi, Jawbreaker, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Converge. Eventually, the duo embarked on their own creative paths into mastering self-production but remained connected through shared interests in art, mental health, and the unknown. Each contributes unique skills and artistry that seamlessly interlocks with the other and allows their music to go from tight, vivid arrangements to raw, ethereal ambience and back again.
the impliers draw comparisons to icons like Radiohead, NIN, The Beach Boys, Tame Impala, David Bowie, Sonic Youth, and Depeche Mode but are far too individual to be defined by another act. Dan and Charles pull the deepest-possible expression from each other and turn them into musical ruminations that somehow evoke both deep levels of emotive contemplation and the urge to dance. As the impliers, they bring an art/pop/noir surrealism to contemporary music that’s uniquely refreshing. Music blogger Mike O’Cull said,“the impliers contribute an outstanding new voice to the indie rock community, one that’s never afraid to speak its own truth no matter what it sounds like.“
