Summer in Siberia
Summer In Siberia originally started as Justin Hynes’ solo project in 2007, but soon grew into a full band for live shows. Their debut album in 2012 “crams together 80’s new wave and 21st century alt-pop, and the result sounds something like a swaggering guitar-rock band digitized and blasted into the bleep-bloop future. The songs? Catchy. Always” -The Inlander

The group was re-energized and took on new dimensions when it reformed in 2016. Summer In Siberia now consists of Hynes (keys/vocals), Alex Brandt (keys/guitar), Eric Shears (bass), and Travis Hurley (drums/electronic percussion). Their current sound combines new wave and experimental electro-pop sounds with heavy hitting yet danceable drums and captivating vocals. Their renowned high-energy live shows engage the crowd, getting them on their feet and dancing like an extra on Footloose. (Source:
