“There’s an angular and brittle energy in their songs that gets tempered by Bri’s very human voice. And the subjects they are exploring in their songs are life experiences that can harden you–but they don’t have to. Art itself softens. A harsh wail can be an act of violence, or it can be music, if it’s put in a song. And we all need more songs these days.”
– Angela Pancella, writer, “Music and Religion”
Driven by a fascination with the possibilities of human interpretation of electronic sounds, FLOCKS strives to create music that guides the listener through a variety of sonic landscapes. Having meticulously crafted their musical voice within the studio, FLOCKS is now committed to recreating this experience live through the interaction of analog synths, electric bass, and acoustic drums replicating synthetic textures. Samples and the human voice also play a significant role in FLOCKS’ approach to songwriting.
Members Tom Buckley (drums/samples), Josh Jessen (synths/keyboards), and Stephen Patota (bass/guitar) came together to form FLOCKS in the vibrant music scene of Cincinnati, Ohio. Collectively, they have performed/recorded across the world with such artists as Hi-Tek, Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Naytronix, Huntertones, Fareed Haque, and members of WHY? and Deerhoof.
