Consider the Source
NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. Brought together in the Classic City - Athens, GA - Sumilan is a band breaking the boundaries of classification. With a natural sound that has evolved into its own, the Georgia-grown group has combined individual appreciations for music with a belief in high dosages of experimentation and is sticking to these roots.
