A loud surge of noise with fuzzed-out guitars, droning synths, and reverb drenched harmonies. Lulling hypnotics mixed with the jagged
pulse of garage rock.

VibraGun is a band which formed in late 2011 in Seattle, Washington,USA.  The band consists of Joel Bergstrom (vocals, guitars), Amber Joy Smith (vocals, synths), Brock Johnson (bass, guitars) and Kevin Malik
(drums).

The beginnings of the band started when Amber met Joel at a T.Rextribute show.   He was playing “Planet Queen” on solo electric guitar
and drum machine. By the end of the night, they had bonded over a shared appreciation for underground alternative bands of the late 80’s
and early 90’s, illicit substances and Berlin-era David Bowie.

They started getting together to drink, and began to write songs that combined  the perspectives of both sides of the stories about sex,
loss and love.  Inspired by the seedy romanticism of The Kills, the lush squall of My Bloody Valentine and the ambient punk of Deerhunter.
The first batch of songs was assisted by James Smith (Film School) on drums and recorded with Matt Brown (Trespassers Williams).

Adding Brock and Kevin in the short summer of 2011, they have released their first singles “Willing Sacrifice” “Happy To Be Sad” and
“Snowblind”.  As the band begins to play, it’s a loud surge of noise with fuzzed-out guitars,  droning synths, and reverb drenched
harmonies.  VibraGun embrace lulling hypnotic states and the jagged pulse of rock in a way that it describes the rough beauty of the
Pacific Northwest.
