Album Notes
INDIE HABIT – May 19th, 2015
“Imagine there is no box… ever. No lines to stay within or break through. That’s what I hear when listening to the new EP “Vertical” by surf meets space meets alt rock meets songwriter, Cali inspired LA based Niantic…” – Glitter Rose

Michael Castro; bass, keyboard, guitar, vocals
Chris McCartt; drums, vocals
Alex Stensel; lead guitar, bass, vocals
Ryan Trask; vocals, guitar, bass

A city full of transplants and yet all four members of Niantic are from the Los Angeles area. We grew up right here, in the thick of it, watching people and ideas and flavors of the month come and go.

So we transplanted styles. A vision, a sonic architecture, a diversity of borrowing, from all periods and approaches to great music. A relentless focus on arranging, musicianship, and performance. Lyrics rooted in original storytelling, coupled with immediate, intricate riffs. Textures and melodies and rhythms you’ll want to get lost in.

All of this comes combines into a powerful live experience that exudes tight playing, joy, and passion. With a deep catalog of stirring, thoughtful originals, you’ll want to bring all your friends.

What does the name Niantic mean? It’s an Indian tribe from Connecticut. Ryan found it on a street sign in San Diego and it’s a pretty name. It has a couple different pronunciations, and we’re not picky.
