The Earthlings

The Earthlings have spent the last decade fostering a community and reputation in Madison of one of the town's most exciting live shows. The music is cinematic and groovy. Abundant vocal harmony between brothers Noah and Elliott Gilfillan, and Luke Peters, is supported by evocative synth melodies, driving effected bass foundations courtesy of Grant Blashcka, and the pulsing rhythm of Chuckie Brown's live drum kit combined with sequencers and sampling. The guitar work of Neil Barhite ranges from ethereal to razorlike, and is complimented by the shared efforts of Elliott and Luke on rhythm guitar. The Earthlings combine these elements in a package that expertly tows the line between chaos and contemplation. It's catchy, it's groovy, it's bedlam, and it's impossible not to dance to.
