Tangent Transmission is the conglomerate formation of musicians Conor Cruz, Dugan Cruz, Kirby Shaw, and Sam Sobo. After forming in the summer of 2009, Tangent Transmission has stopped at nothing to saturate Southern California with their exciting and eclectic sound. The foursome has played in well-known Los Angeles venues such as The Whisky a Go Go, House of Blues, and The Roxy. In the studio, the boys crafted “Pull” their first full length EP, produced by Grammy-winner Matt Hyde (No Doubt, Jonny Lang), Receiving high acclaim for their performances and recordings alike, Tangent Transmission was honored with the Artist of the Year award in the All Indie Magazine music awards. All Indie’s radio host Mikeyy Jayy described Tangent Transmission as giving “a whole new definition to the meaning of rock music. Perhaps it should be called tangent rock, because they do not intersect with any other sound except with their own.” Inflating in popularity, TT has had song placements in the documentary h2indo as well as one episode of NCIS: Los Angeles.
The tangent rock sounds a little bit like a lot of things. Drawing from groups like The Mars Volta, Muse, Rage Against the Machine, and Incubus, their heavy guitar riffs, tight and blasting rhythms, soaring vocal lines, and shambolic emotions bring an electrifying performance to stages and speakers everywhere. Operating at full capacity to deliver any audience to a new tangent of what they believed rock music to be, Tangent Transmission is constantly working to further their musical horizons. [+]
