Desert Noises will take a break to revamp before their national tour in November by playing at The Velour Live Music Gallery this Thursday Sept. 13, with Timmy the Teeth and The Young Electric.
According to Kyle Henderson and Brennan Allen, the singer/guitarist, and drummer respectively, for Desert Noises, the Provo audience will be privileged to hear songs from their last album, Mountain Sea, and some of what they’re working on now.
“It’s been quite a long time since we’ve played some of these songs,” Allen said. “We want to play something our audience will be more familiar with and preview some of our new stuff.”
The band has come a long way from their beginnings. They were previously responsible for booking themselves. They said they were lucky enough to meet friends and build strong relationships that make for better and better shows. The band also recently added a new guitarist. All members agreed that it was the best decision and the band has never sounded better.
“It’s nice that we’ve worked our way up to this point,” Henderson said. “Now we have more time to be together and really focus on the music.”
The band described the process of how they write new music. Someone will bring an idea to the table, then the band will spend time fumbling and spinning it around, and building it up to see where it will go.
The method works for the band, as evident by the expected release of a new EP in the near future.
“It’s still in the works,” Henderson said. “We’re still figuring out some details, but definitely keep your eyes out for it.”
The band is looking forward to the show at the Velour. With close personal connections to the other bands they’re performing with, they’re expecting the show to be a diverse musical experience.
“We want a show where everyone can experience togetherness as a community,” Henderson said. “We want a positive atmosphere where people can enjoy music.”
Though everyone in the band has sacrificed a lot to be at this point, they are looking forward to the future and plan to take the road as far as it will go.
The opening band, The Young Electric, said playing with family will make Thursday’s upcoming show at the Velour like coming home.
Previously known as The Trademark, The Young Electric has undergone some changes recently and is excited for the chance of playing at the Velour to get out there and reintroduce themselves.
Riley Hamnett, lead vocalist, explained that with a new member and an evolving sound and style, the show at the Velour will be a fresh start for them.
“The fan base at BYU and Provo is always changing because people are leaving and coming,” Hamnett said. “We can always count on their positive reinforcement. Provo always offers us more, and we thrive off our live shows there.”
The band hopes that the show at Velour on Thursday will creative a positive buzz and promo for them as they are preparing to release a new album by October.
