Hailing from Spokane, Washington,The Globes (Walters Ourada, Musselwhite and McCotter) formed in their teenage years, spending afternoons in their sleepy city collaboratively dissecting and interpreting the fundamentals of songwriting, experimentation and craft while forging together their own musical inspirations to fabricate a singular and precocious sound based on the traditional guitar, bass, drum lineup.
Carrying ambition and confidence in their creative potential to stay united post high school graduation, the band relocated to Seattle in 2007 to pursue their musical experiments in a more opportune environment. Somewhere between day jobs and school, The Globes managed to record an eponymous E.P. in early 2008 with engineer Jonathan Warman (Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band) in the dim and dusty basement of their little blue house. In the following year, the band spent fruitful time playing weekly shows in the Northwest and running up and down the West Coast, slowly catching the attention of humble audiences and local critics, while sharpening their own collective spirit.
After a time of travel, the Globes spent the fall of 2009 writing and recording new music with veteran producer John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Death Cab for Cutie, Unwound), resulting in the release of the "Sinter Songs" EP, a conglomeration of 4 moody songs based on the intricate rhythms and dynamics of Ourada (drums) and McCotter (bass) overlayed by noisy and textural guitar work of Musselwhite and Walters. "Sinter Songs" marks of the debut of Musselwhite on vocals, and displays the bands penchant for precision while maintaining youthful angst and naivety.
Like hairs on a head, The Globes continue to grow in all directions. Look forward to it.
