Biography

There are 2 outfits operating under the name ‘SCREENS”

1) Eldritch weird wavers, Screens, seeped into existence in early 2009, after Washington, D.C. defectors, drummer Andrew Becker (Dischord Records’, Medications) and vocalist Breck Brunson (psych-sludge purveyors, The Apes) hooked up with keyboardist, Daniel Roland Tierney (San Francisco aggressors, The Mall) and guitarist, Luke Kozikowski in New York City. After bonding over their mutual affection for Harry Partch, Harry Nilsson and Harry Pussy, the quartet began congregating in a Lavvu above a Sami fish market, perfecting a sound that simultaneously sounded like a soothing Congolese dust storm and a toddler exploding in the night. Following countless frenzied shows in the moistest of east coast squats, Screens decamped to the rock and roll mecca of Hockessin, Delaware with reclusive and DMT diluted super-producer, L. Skell (remarkably overweight genius behind 2007’s unheralded classic “Eldridge Skell’s The Rude Staircase - Sookie Jump”) and engineer, Nick Krill (The Spinto Band), to craft a spirited mess of unbridled dystopia slathered in a rich, pasty, psychedelic batter. “Dead House”, Screens’ first full-length, will be released on May 17, 2011 on Becker’s label, What Delicate Recordings.

2) Hailing from Brisbane - SCREENS combine progressive post-rock soundscapes with an innovative multimedia experience, incorporating projected film sequences and live music into a unique, integrated performance piece. Since their formation in late 2010, screens have performed alongside stellar Brisbane acts including [ Mr Maps ] ~ [ Nikko ] and [ Hazards of Swimming Naked ] to strong support and glowing reviews.

More recently they have released a split EP with Brisbane experimental band Big Dead, Screens are currently immersed in work on a 3-act narrative piece – working title: “Black Nights, Grey Days” – taking inspiration from noir and neo-noir cinema, workshopping a unique and interactive audio/visual performance to be debuted in 2012, along with a polished LP release and tour.
