          Several miles off the coast of Los Angeles in a broken down boat LA natives Matt Reid (Blonde Summer) and Michael Perry Rudes (FEELS) realized it was time to embark on a new musical odyssey. One that championed fearlessness, rawness, and above all, freedom. NORMANS was born on the dirty streets of la and baptized in the punk rich waters of Hermosa Beach. Years of experience in the LA music scene led to a multi-genre bass driven attack that conjures the ghosts of Jesus lizard, Iggy Pop, with moments of mature sonic landscapes akin to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Never without a grain of satire Reid’s lyrics explore issues of violence, drug use, and the terrified animal caged within us all. Post Punk, Electro, Surf are all terms that could be applied, but then again…maybe not. All that is for sure is that NORMANS will continue to ascend into yet uncharted waters, unlike the boat they started on.
