Biography

Submarine Fleet is a 5 piece band consisting of electric guitars (6 string, baritone, and bass), drums, and vocals. The 5 members combine dreamy high frequency shimmer, deep range melodiousness, and hypnotic rhythms to set the stage for passionate male vocal works with surrealist leanings.

Submarine Fleet has often been compared to the likes of 1980’s 4AD label artists such as Cocteau Twins (primarily with respect to their heavily layered guitar work). However, upon closer observation, hints of things more reminiscent of Blonde Redhead, And Also The Trees, and Ummagumma era Pink Floyd become recognizable. Add to that their generous song lengths, which build and maintain their resonance through a well crafted intensity, and one comes up with a sound that is at once psychedelic, intriguing and mysterious.

“In a Case of Fire”, Submarine Fleet’s debut E.P., was officially released on July 26, 2005.

This entirely self-produced and self-released CD includes 5 songs from their all-original live repertoire; a catalogue of songs which has begun to engage and endear a respectable following amongst the concert-going crowds of Portland, Oregon.

On July 22nd the band, in ship-shape from the studio, performed a very well attended CD release party at Portland’s Ash Street Saloon. This event marked a definite high point in the band’s first nine months of playing live, months which have included appearances with other Portland artists such as Dorien, The Divided, The Gentry, The Prids, and nationally touring acts such as Collide and Girl in a Coma.

    Hey Tyrone28 - Submarines are referred to as "boats" for historical reasons because vessels deployed from a ship are referred to as boats. The first submarines were launched in such a manner. The English term U-Boat for a German submarine comes from the German word for submarine, U-Boot, itself an abbreviation for Unterseeboot ("undersea boat"). So in regards to fleet or force.... who cares. The band is amazing!

    the name should be submarine force, not fleet. fleet refers to surface boats. good music though. - an ex-bubblehead
