Bend Band Isles, Set to Make Waves

There's a new band in Bend called Isles and they're pretty dang good.

They've only played a handful of shows in town so far— most recently at a Rise Up fund raiser at TBD Loft. But with recorded music on the way this summer, these guys are ready to make a splash.

They play VERY ambient beach rock, much like that of San Francisco's Tycho and it's quite moving. Their name for it is "Pacific soul." There is also a touch of avant garde jazz in the style of Balmorhea.

Check out the trailer for their upcoming album below as well as a video from that First Friday Rise Up benefit show.

This type of music is a very welcome addition to our local music scene. Keep checking BENT for more on when you can catch these guys live.
