Earth Science
Biography

They say New York City is like a living organism, forever growing and changing, sprouting its tentacles outwards towards to the tips of the outer boroughs, regenerating and reinventing itself as needed. This aesthetic is what helped draw the members of “Earth Science” together in Brooklyn in May 2010. Old friends Dino Tarosin and Jan Apanok dreamed of playing music again together outside of their native Bangkok Thailand, where their band “The Eastbound Downers” wrote and toured extensively for the better part of 5 years. After meeting fellow bandmates Joseph Albert and Kayne Konecny playing with the band “Red Ghost Revolt” Dino enlisted friend Steve W. Thompson as a third guitarist for the new project. This mix of creativity would push the boundaries of what each member had done previously, and draw together a tight-nit faction of friends with similar goals in mind. Drawing influences from punk rock, shoegaze, dream pop, and post-rock the band began writing their debut 5 song EP “Flares” in the summer of 2010. After a run of shows in early 2011, they began challenging themselves to write and record a full length record. Finding a balance between organic song writing and calculated build ups and releases would prove itself challenging, but would also allow for an unexpected freedom in song structure, allowing each song to meander through delicate high and lows before falling apart gracefully. Months of steady rehearsal would result in 10 song record to be titled “In Arcadia” and recorded and mixed 100% D.I.Y. by the band’s bassist Kayne Konecny in their hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Each Earth Science composition is a blend of each individual member’s ideas and tastes, bringing a certain unique and interesting quality to the songs. As the band continues to march on, their only goal is to keep pushing the limits of their craft and keep reinventing their sound one show and one record at a time
