Indie Pop Group PHOTONS formed by Calvin Liu was created with the original intention of making music that might sound like “a more cheerful Joy Division” — a simple idea that would evolve dramatically as the San Francisco band’s size continued to grow.
Now an 8-piece co-ed ensemble that prominently features the bassoon, glockenspiel, clarinet and melodica, Photons has swiftly established itself as one of San Francisco’s most unique and charming acts, with an energetic live show full of jumps, stomps and shouts.
The group released this month the self-titled EP drawing a critical comparison of bands ranging from The Walkmen, The Decemebrists to The Strokes.
