The Globes were formed in their teenage years (recently — the youngest member is 21), spending afternoons in their sleepy city of Spokane, Washington collaboratively dissecting and interpreting the fundamentals of songwriting while forging together their own musical inspirations. Their debut full-length, Future Self, was produced by John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Death Cab for Cutie, Sleater-Kinney, etc), and promises to be one of the best rock records of 2011.

A Stitch Couldn't Save The World

Hailing from Spokane, Washington, The Globes (Erik Walters, Marcus Ourada, Kyle Musselwhite, and Sean 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. The band 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 self-released Sinter Songs EP EP and a forthcoming full length to be released in early 2011 on Barsuk Records. Sinter songs is a conglomeration of 4 moody songs based on the intricate rhythms and dynamics overlayed by noisy and textural guitar work.

Technically meticulous and emphatically, desperately emotional. Seattle's full of rock bands that can show off an impressive level of technical savvy. I just haven't heard any that made me care this much. - Seattle Weekly
