  • BRAINSTORM BRAINSTORM A map of BRAINSTORM’s musical influences would span the entire globe. Withinthe Portland, Oregon-based experimental pop trio’s music, one can hear West African grooves and guitar licks, British invasion rock and roll, and soulful AM-radio nostalgia. But most of all, BRAINSTORM’s is a buoyant sound: From the the band’s shimmering debut full-length, Heat Waves--produced by Robbie Moncrieff (Dirty Projectors, Youth Lagoon) to its more psychedelic single She Moves, all of the trio’s music is loaded with intense kinetic energy. That energy translates seamlessly into an explosive live show packed with three-part vocal harmonies and tight polyrhythms.
