Ethers are a Chicago “supergroup” featuring former members of Heavy Times, Outer Minds & Radar Eyes. Ethers' eponymous debut album (out August 24th) is full to the brim withragged, soulful rock and roll, heavy on hooks, with stark arrangements and sticky melodies that hang with an unexpected resonance. Peppered with cynicism and charm, the album yearns with a hopeful ache for better days ahead.
Band members L to R: Russ Calderwood, Bo Hansen, Mary McKane, Matt Rolin.
RIYL: Royal Headache, The Men, Heavy Times, Reigning Sound, The Feelies, Undertones, Parquet Courts
