Playing together in some form since 2004, Joel, Luke, Mike, and Tim share
a common passion for possibilities in music. Dividing their time between
the coasts of California in Los Angeles and Ventura, with one foot firmly
planted in Thousand Oaks where they met and still write together, Pretend
remains a definition of friendship, experimentation, and experience.



Every chord and note is placed and strummed with reason and purpose ... [b]ut it is the smart assemblage of arrangements that make the entire experience feel like you were falling in love for the very first time over and over again for the duration.

An excellent example of intelligent post-rock that'll take your senses through sweeping soundscapes.
