Failures Art. : Surgery EP.
(Duplicated CD, Extended Play)
'They took your life apart, and called your failures art. They were wrong, though. They won't know 'til tomorrow.' These words by Elliot Smith are what inspired Joe Yunckes to hand pick a group of talented musicians to join him on an adventure into music exploration back in 2006. Failures Art is a brooding-shoe-gazer-indie rock band that bleeds it's heart and passion into the music they play. The group is inspired by such artists as Sunny Day Real Estate, Spiritualized, Mogwai, Low and Smashing Pumpkins. Accompanying Joe are Andrew Kraemer, Chris Cacciato, Scott Lilley, and Jason Murray. Andrew is a powerful, laid back guitarist who can captivate a crowd with his crafted wall of sound and turn music into feeling with the strum of his guitar. Chris Cacciato is a pointed, controlled, yet creative drummer who adds a unique blend of hard-hitting anticipation to any song. Scott Lilley, who joined the group at the beginning of 2008, highlights Yunckes' lyrics with his melodic vocals and impressive keyboard technique. And last but certainly not least, the band's most recent addition, Jason Murray is a not-so-typical bass player who refuses to blend into the background but isn't afraid to blend into the music. Failures Art has been focused on playing shows throughout Connecticut and New York City over the past year. They recently released The Surgery EP. Which is available through iTunes. It highlights the power, energy and emotion that this quintet brings to any stage.
