Bryan Scary & The Shredding Tears like things big. While they are, first and foremost, a pop band, the Brooklyn-based quintet leaves no stone unturned, mixing elements of psychedelia, classic rock, indie, and prog into their sonic stew. The group has earned glowing comparisons to legendary icons—The Beatles, The Kinks, The Move/ELO, Queen, XTC, Yes, and Frank Zappa, amongst others—as well as contemporary stars—including The Flaming Lips, Ben Folds, and Of Montreal—all within its first year of existence. Combining classic pop melodies, inventive chord structures, elaborate vocal harmonies, dazzling musicianship, and a quirky lyrical concoction of clever wordplay and outlandish third-person narratives, Bryan Scary & The Shredding Tears are poised to claim their own spot in the rich lineage of pop music. To see this band live is to fully experience their greatness.
