SOMETIMES SEXY. SOMETIMES EERIE, ALWAYS SHOCKING. The Intangibles bring sweaty, original Rock n’ Roll to the Ohio music scene and beyond. Originating in Massillon, Ohio in 2013, the uniqueness of their sound can only be matched by the intensity of their stage performance. Front-man Charlie 6er delivers an emotional performance through his zombie-Hendrix guitar style, thought-provoking lyrics, flute and dance. The “never know what hell you’re going to get” drumming style of K.J. Herring drives the metal induced, funk grooves of bassist Blake Oaks and the enchanting melodies of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Aaron Perez-Strohmeyer. The Intangibles are untouchable, though intensely felt.
The band released their first full-length album (Self-Titled) in 2014, which was described by William Trehaus of Seedy Magazine as “a thoroughly cohesive record that takes the listener into uncharted auditory areas…Metal mingles with hip-hop, indie pop envelopes experimental, lo-fi fights with psychedelia tangled up in noise.” (July 2014 Seedy V1I2) The album has been compared to such contradicting artists as Death from Above 1979, Chuck Berry and Pink Floyd, truly revealing the band’s large range of appeal. With softer tracks such as “Insurance Fraud” and “Swisher Sweets,” the album reveals “a string of interesting, thought-provoking songs with structures that challenge the listener.” (Seedy) With a very spaced out vocal delivery, that is even at times simultaneously desperate and joyous, mixed with such swinging experiments in genre, The Intangibles first LP is strangely contemporary.
