Biography

Mount Sharp began on a rooftop in Brooklyn, or on a boat in Maine, or perhaps somewhere in between. Either way, the band grew around the bittersweet, poetic songwriting of Swood (Sarah Wood) paired with Bryan Bruchman’s noisy, chaotic tendencies around 2012. On 2014’s WEIRD FEARS EP (with the rhythm section of Ryan Zumsen and Maia Macdonald), the band exhibited a blast of unbridled energy, excitement, and confusion –  a fitting soundtrack to a brief blissful, carefree time before so much changed. The band – now with Sal Garro and Jonathan Pilkington Kahnt firmly holding down the drums and bass – has matured, and the songs are maybe a little more serious, maybe a little more reflective, but no less cutting and catchy. Taking inspiration from the cosmos, sci fi tv, and the messed up state of the world, Mount Sharp puts all the feels into song.

Swood writes songs but is not quite sure how they aren’t all about sad robots in space (or cats).

Bryan is a guitarist who makes pictures and videos. He lives in the suburbs now with his family, which includes a legitimate trash cat in the basement.

Sal is a drummer who lives in a 4:4 human-to-animal household, rides a tricycle as a primary mode of transport, and has a collection of several thousand business cards.

JPK is a bass player who reads all the comic books and always shows up to practice with seltzer and a sci fi book.

Other bands you may know them from, previously and/or currently: Mango Floss, Man in Gray, Marie Stella, Quiet Loudly, Pow Wow!,  Flying Pace.

Influences: Fleetwood Mac, Liz Phair, Yo La Tengo, Joanna Newsom, St. Vincent, Robyn, Dinosaur Jr.

RIYL: Hop Along, Speedy Ortiz, Yo La Tengo, Angel Olsen, Waxahatchee
