Biography

“The ten songs found on “Burn Alive” by the (Pacific) Northwest’s Hidden Number are pedal to the floor, don’t look back, herky-jerky neo-wave that features sounds so angular as to be jagged. Synths, guitars and vocals lope and rage back and forth between the speakers with such pummeling power that they wouldn’t even bother to stop and to the wasted corpse of electroclash to let the listener catch their breath.” — sicthings.com

Deep in the heart of founding member/engineer/producer Dean Swanson’s recording complex Magnets Large & Small, the band Hidden Number is completing their second album to be released in the Fall of 2010. They continue tirelessly to craft compositions that lead the band in unexpected directions toward unknown destinations. Coalescing however it will, the music ignores any barrier of genre, label, and niche. Hidden Number channels a broad expanse of individual influences—be it compositions of art, film, music, or mythology—in a dynamic approach of intensity and subtlety, noise and melody, order and chaos, painted against walls of textural sonic information through their guitars, synthesizers and samplers, drums, and voice.

The current band lineup—Josh Anderson, Dean Swanson, Kai Strandskov, and Joe Stuhff—is the intersection of three unusual stories.
