Epsilona



Lovely bit of indie-rock from California boys, Epsilona. Groovy , dreamy and soulful as hell.

In their own words...

"Epsilona is an up-and-coming indie rock band hailing from California. This project equates to a splash of psychedelic and a tablespoon of soul; all baked on a cerebral loaf of curiosity. They yield a dynamic rhythm section and guitar melodies that embody a cool, collected yet earthy and dreamy aesthetic."

It kicks some serious ass.
