MORE ABOUT RANDOM VARIABLES
They may be children of the digital age, but Random Variables attempt to reconcile a vintage sound with modern sensibilities, both musically and lyrically. Melodic guitars, angry distortion, and melancholy instrumental and vocal harmonies take centerstage on their first EP, with steady and insistent drum beats complementing lyrics that aim to address this generation’s disillusion.
Members Jeremy Denham, Suvesh Pratapa, and Jeff Moffett met in grad school while working together, and decided to supplement more serious musical pursuits once they were out in the real world. The band is determined to write ambitious and poignant material about the increasing ways in which we connect and disconnect with each other in this day and age, and how the notion of the self is affected by all the chaos. They are driven by the notion that no constructs of rock and roll will ever be truly dead – that there will always be someone who wants the release, the need to rebel, and the thirst to connect with kindred spirits.
Their musical influences are varied and diverse, ranging all the way from vintage figureheads (Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Velvet Underground) to modern stalwarts (Arcade Fire, Radiohead, The White Stripes).
The band is now based in Cambridge, MA.
