ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Spyn Reset apply their elite technique to create songs that are at once structurally challenging and melodically accessible—a difficult feat.” – The Stranger

On their new LP Dots, Seattle, WA trio Spyn Reset combine a near-monastic dedication to virtuosic
precision with a willingness to cast aside genre categorization in the search for something new. Produced
by the band and Geoff Ott (Queens of the Stone Age / Three Doors Down), Dots draws from the worlds of
prog, synth-pop and jam to create a unique sound that is “high energy, full of surprises and technically
gnarly to boot.” – Grateful Web
Spyn Reset was born out of frontman / synth player YASU’s desire to meld his Japanese music
background and love heavy synths lead with the math rock, prog, and grunge he grew up listening to. He
idolizes Chris Cornell, so it was clear from the onset that his journey would lead him to Seattle. He
met guitarist / bassist Evan McPherson while attending Cornish College for the Arts. Their musical
chemistry was undeniable, so they set to work searching for other musicians that shared their vision.
Their debut LP Objects in the Abstract, recorded as a sextet including with the addition of a saxophonist,
percussionist, and organ player, is an instrumental album originally intended for soundtrack purposes.
Four Dimensional Audio, the follow up release (and first with current drummer Pierson Martin) was
recorded as a guitar-free quartet. Still searching for their sound, the bands direction changed one fateful
day when YASU brought his Moog synth to rehearsal.
While their SERENDIPITY EP still moved through the instrumental jazz realm a new sound was
percolating below the surface. The 2015 single “Autodidactic” was the band’s first release that truly
encapsulated their vision. Written over three years, Dots was recorded at London Bride Studios in
Seattle. “Our vision for our third full length album was to grow from our instrumental roots and take on a
powerful new shape musically” says McPherson. “We challenged ourselves to redefine our sound as a
trio and fully embraced vocals as a prominent part of the music. Dots is truly unlike anything we've done
before.”
Thematically, the “dots” represent humanity and our inherent interconnectedness. “Those connections are
strengthened when we approach others with an openness to embrace new and unfamiliar perspectives”
explains McPherson. Let's find a way out to see the light through the clouds. YOU are not alone, we are
all connected to each other through dots...” 
In the live realm, Spyn Reset has supported TAUK, Twiddle, Everclear, Mike Dillon Band, and more.
