Scully Announce No Sense EP + Share "Wave" via Brooklyn Vegan
Scully came together as a meeting of minds from the ashes of Oakland California based sunshine rippers The Splinters. In a parking lot behind an Ethiopian restaurant in Austin, TX circa 2009 the 3 core Splinters met drummer Burgers Rana & a few months later the friendship was solidified when their two bands played a sweaty, weird warehouse show together in New York City. As time passed The Splinters disbanded. Fast forwarding a few years later core members Caroline Partamian (guitar/vocals), Courtney Gray (guitar/vocals) and Lauren Stern (bass/vocals) reunited in Brooklyn to play together for the first time since 2011 inviting their best bud Burgers to round out the group on drums.
The "No Sense" EP sees the band expanding on that California sunshine vibe adding the grit & summer trash stench of a New York City Summer, sharpening up and infusing the latest endeavor with a more potent swagger. The band's girl-group sensibilities cannot be denied, but Scully's music balances heaviness and pop with plenty of nods to Brian Jonestown era Psych, early Punk and '90s grunge. To date, the group has two releases — a limited-edition split cassette (with fellow Brooklynites Las Rosas) and a 7" split with La Luz on Famous Class’s LAMC imprint.
