What was supposed to be vocalist/pianist Austin Eckel’s solo project became the band Static To The Sound after pal Steve Sobanski jumped on board to add guitar and bass and the pair “realized these songs could be full-band songs,” Eckel says. “The album [Isolated] turned out great, and we decided that we should start a band.” The Perrysburg, Ohio, quintet push out twinkling, infectious, Andrew McMahon-esque piano tunes, and Eckel says their long-term goals are simple: “We would love to keep playing and recording music for as long as we can.”
