Us, Today

website | bandcamp | facebook

Us, Today is a trio (drums, guitar, vibraphone/keyboard) based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Their style is best described as an avant-garde post-rock with a heavy emphasis on experimentation.

It all began with a conversation about Annie Clark…
Soon after, Joel and Kristin began meeting weekly in a basement, exchanging ideas, talking about what they’d always wanted to do but never been able to in a band. THAT was what they should play. After a few months of meetings, ideas became songs. “I think i know a drummer that would be into this.”, says Kristin. Jeff shows up to the basement, plays through a few tunes, and asks when “we” were practicing next. The duo is now officially a trio. The name was unintentional and agreed upon immediately.

Us is who we are. Today is most important.

Hellnaw is a two-man rhythm section (bass and drums) that sounds like Les Claypool and John Bonham throwing a temper tantrum in unison. Stationed in Athens, Ohio, Josh Wicker and Wren Fenton combine technical chemistry, improvisation, gritty licks, and filthy grooves to create a powerhouse of sound.
