(thee) sick balloons.
sick balloons began back in 2004 as a modest attempt at learning to play guitar-based music via bedroom, and also as a means of alternate expression from other musical meanderings. a lot of the earlier demos were made simply with sister's bass, sampler and 8track (digital, yes). various recordings were passed out amongst friends during this time. in early 2009 after a few years of musical dormancy new recordings began to develop, resulting in sharpened and matured standing amongst previous output.
2011 saw the release of the first official tape/digital release, "farewell to the swagger kids."
shortly after that, begat live procurement fixturing, and the first incarnation of the band.
2013, balloons were seen with 'prague over brooklyn,' a revisit to imperfections and home-fi.
2014 found more experimentation and home recordings with a new record, 'north citrus helvetica.'
after a few shifts and rearrangements, the current roster is aligned with the bravado of punk-informed anthems alongside pop songwriting and a ton of FUZZ.
'telescopes (on) parade,' our fourth, albeit first full fledged, full band record, is in progress, helmed by our good friend, Dave Matthies.
thanks for being one of our [sic] friends.
