The Earthlings

Earthlings: inhabitants of the world of music with knack for the eclectic.

Born in a Madison, Wisconsin basement in the early winter of 2010, the collective began as a group of friends expressing themselves through musical experimentation.

Within a year, the project expanded from one basement recording to a sixteen track musical collage known as "Earth", (later reprinted as Mars). Featuring contributions from dozens of musicians and a core group of six members: Elliott & Noah Gilfillan, Luke Peters, Logan Grahn, Chuckie Brown, & John Anderson. The formation is a reflective of their sound: malleable, multipolar, and evolutionary.

With a base rooted in groove and dynamism, the music transverses the genres of the 50's to the present era, exploring early rock 'n' roll drive and folk swing with neo-reggae and electronic elements.

As 2011 passed into 2012, the band progressed into a more defined and engaged entity, performing for Wisconsin audiences in Madison and Milwaukee and meeting like-minded groups such as Venice Gas House Trolley and Wook.

The Earthlings were affirmed of their growth when they recently scored a spot at Summerfest 2013 by winning Milwaukee's River Rhythms Battle of the Bands.

The use of various instrumentations, vocal harmonies, and lead-sharing tradeoffs creates an immersive architecture that the band occupies with a passionate energy.

As positive vibrations spill forth from instruments and voices, people become filled with the spirit of shared luminous consciousness and leave the experience with an impression that carries on the excitement into their lives. [+]
