Summer In Siberia originally started as Justin Hynes’ solo project in 2007, but soon grew into a full band for live shows. Their debut album in 2012 "crams together 80’s new wave and 21st century alt-pop, and the result sounds something like a swaggering guitar-rock band digitized and blasted into the bleep-bloop future. The songs? Catchy. Always" -The Inlander
The group was re-energized and took on new dimensions when it reformed in 2016. Summer In Siberia now consists of Hynes (keys/vocals), Alex Brandt (keys/guitar), Eric Shears (bass), and Travis Hurley (drums/electronic percussion). Their current sound combines new wave and experimental electro-pop sounds with heavy hitting yet danceable drums and captivating vocals. Their renowned high-energy live shows engage the crowd, getting them on their feet and dancing like an extra on Footloose.
The group is currently writing and recording new songs, and plans to release a succsession of EPs starting in Summer 2017.
