Spyn Reset is no stranger to genre bending music. With their electro-rock bringing elements of rock to mind bending rhythms with synthesizers and hard driving melodies, Spyn Reset has left a lasting impression on their Seattle hometown and beyond. With a back catalog to boot, including their most recent single release “Autodidactic”, Spyn Reset “kicks the beat into high gear, creating an electro-dance-rock track with a stellar guitar riff” – Seattle Weekly. The albums are recorded at London Bridge Studios. They are produced & engineered by Geoff Ott(President of Pacific NW Chapter Grammy’s Recording Academy). The band has been fortunate to share the stage with Twiddle, Tauk, Everclear, and Assembly of Dust at venues that include Nectar’s Lounge (Seattle, WA), Cervante’s Other Side (Denver, CO), and Brick + Mortar Music Hall (SF).
It’s been a wild and crazy ride for the fellas in World’s Finest, since their modest beginning as an acoustic duo in Portland, OR living rooms in 2011. With a songwriting style rooted in Americana, the band banks on their ability to transcend genres of all kinds. String-centric and bluegrass-inspired compositions seamlessly transition into 3-Dimensional Psytrance, Funk, and Dub soundscapes, leaving their audience with a full circle experience of emotion and dance. Their appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout their shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings, reminiscent of such classic acts as NOFX and Operation Ivy. Never happy to settle, Chris, Dan, Sean, Evan, and Mike continue to push through boundaries and challenge themselves, while hoping to inspire their listeners to expect the most out of what a band in the modern age can be capable of conjuring up.
Five years, countless shows, and 5 albums later, the band is still firing on all cylinders. The current lineup features 5 members: Chris Couch (Guitar/Vocals), Dan Hurley (Banjo/Vocals), Sean McLean (Sax/Guitar/Vocals), Evan Malfer (Bass), and Mike Apodaca (Drums). Their paths have all crossed in Portland, by way of Ohio, Illinois, Eastern Oregon, New York and California. As a result of such diverse upbringings, it was inevitable that the band’s sound reflected their coast to coast musical influences.
The band’s new album, “Chromatophores” is an expansive 9 song dive into the World’s Finest sound. It is their most complete album to date, and a true representation of what you get from a World’s Finest live show. Poignant songs of love and life on the road are seamlessly placed into sprawling musical landscapes as vast and beautiful as the roads and towns the band has relentlessly traversed over the past 4 years. Recorded and mixed at Hallowed Halls in Portland, OR by Justin Phelps (Leftover Salmon, Fruition, Shook Twins), this is the album that World’s Finest fans have been waiting for.
World’s Finest has hit the West Coast festival scene hard, making appearances at High Sierra, Northwest String Summit, 4 Peaks, What the Festival ?!, Oregon Country Fair, Summer Meltdown and Symbiosis, to name a few. Their unique style has allowed them to connect with fans from all different kinds of musical worlds. In addition, their chameleon-like approach to their live show has allowed them the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as Steel Pulse, Leftover Salmon, The Motet, The Expendables, Rusted Root, The Skatalites, Fruition, and many others.
